Our Values

  • For most shows and presenters, energy is everything. That first 15 seconds often defines the next hour. Setting the bar high and finding the next level is what we do. And as a team, we’re amplified when we work together to reach it, knowing that there are always new ways to attain max volume.

  • Our customers count on us to always be on for them — on time, on schedule and on point, both live on air and on demand. And since standing still doesn’t let us or our customers stand out, we are constantly striving to make the things we touch just a little bit better, each and every day.

  • Magic happens when we take risks, stay curious, and push the envelope. We want our customers and audiences to feel special about the magic moments we are helping them create. We believe that creativity and magic is inside all of us, and it’s our job to tap into it and bring it to life.

  • Leadership requires owning it, big time. Whether it’s helping our customers produce a show, shipping code, closing deals, or taking the lead on any project, we believe excellence comes from clear ownership, following through, and being accountable if things don’t go as well as hoped.

Crush expectations

We believe every interaction is an opportunity to wow customers and make them Brandlive superfans. Each show, event, or meeting is likely their most important; so it’s our job to support them, inspire confidence and turn a stressful experience into a joyful one they are proud of. We know that service and support beyond expectations matters. It is our greatest differentiator and greatest force for future success.

Think like a showrunner

Our objective is to help our customers create the best shows possible, so we never shy away from applying our expertise and creative insight. When our customers ask us for something, we don’t automatically say “yes.” Instead, we strive to understand the why. Asking questions and leading with a showrunner-mindset helps us mitigate risk while helping to create experiences our customer may not dream possible, ensuring show success and turning them into superheroes.

Your schedule, not ours

Shows and events - and the work required to plan them - are never at the best time. Global time zones and packed calendars may require us to be there at the most inconvenient times for us. While being there for the customer drives us towards excellence, it also means that we must recharge and maintain a healthy balance so we can always bring our best.

#AlwaysOn

Sprinkle fairy dust

We look for ways big and small to bring joy to our customers, in every interaction, and in the simplicity and thoughtfulness of our products. We want smiles to be a part of the Brandlive experience so we seek opportunities to surprise and delight with special moments, going above and beyond when our customers least expect it. Sometimes, it’s the little things that make the biggest impact.

#CreateMagic

Whatever it takes

Our goal is to deliver the best show, no matter the cost. It’s ok if we do things that are magical, but are added costs to Brandlive. We are empowered to make each show special and make customers feel like we created something that was not possible without our imagination and efforts.

Calm is contagious

Things will go wrong. We know that. While calm is contagious so is fear. As Warren Buffett once said, “it takes 20 years to build a reputation and five minutes to ruin it. If you think about that, you'll do things differently.” Our customers count on us to over-prepare, stay calm and deliver during the most critical moments. It’s this calm intensity that reassures everyone and makes the biggest difference.
