Bright Planning is a high-level consultancy with a small group of experts.





As marketing and PR campaign architects, we find the unique pivotal moment that makes a person say “yes” under their breath and buy from your brand. Then we create a blueprint of micro-moments just like that one. This becomes your story-driven marketing campaign.

Meet the team

We had a number of false starts with content writers and strategists and really none of them worked for us. Even so-called experts. Catherine is fantastic and a real pleasure to work with. She totally immerses herself in your business and culture to understand your unique proposition so as to communicate this well in her work. We have been so pleased with everything she has done for us and I would highly recommend her to anyone.
