At Bellbird, we operate in the nexus between communication, marketing, and business development. Working strategically and creatively, we help businesses pursue commercial advocacy and storydoing. We are experts in change communication, advocacy, storytelling, and brand building.
Bellbird was founded in Stockholm in the spring of 2017. In the autumn of 2018, Bellbird acquired We Are The StoryDoers. Bellbird is owned by CEO Anders Kempe, together with Maria Stern, Robert Johansson, Michael Wolf, Sofia Falk, and David Sandström.
We aim to take on the most exciting assignments for the most ambitious brands. For new, fast-growing companies, we feature a special offer combining communication and business-advisory services. In the past we have helped more than 50 global heavy industrials, financial, professional services firms, retail and tech companies, each of which employed anything from a handful to more than 100,000 employees, and operate in some 100 markets around the world.
At Bellbird, we help companies to grow and evolve through commercial advocacy and storydoing.
Commercial advocacy is our concept for agenda-setting communication. We help brands win hearts and minds, to build brands, and to impact conversations, behaviour and consumption.
Storydoing is about helping companies with change that starts from inside. Insight-based commitment, organisational design, day-to-day activities, and everyday behaviours all make a substantial difference to the bottom line.
We believe change communication is most successful when treated as an integrated whole. So while we offer specialist expertise in all of the areas outlined below, our clients benefit from a unique set of skill sets and services that extend far beyond conventional offerings.
It takes more than good products or services to succeed. In today’s disruptive and raucous world, competition between brands that want to grow and develop is fierce. With a clear commercial approach based on insights and behavioural economics, Bellbird helps companies and organisations navigate these waters. We develop brand, communication, and market strategies designed to generate growth and achieve change. Our offering includes: business understanding, market and competition analysis, brand strategy and platforms, and communication strategies and market plans.
Reputation and trust are the cornerstones of commercial success, and are thus business-critical. Internal and external communications are paramount in forging and earning these assets. We help brands strengthen, nurture, and protect their corporate voice and relationships with selected stakeholders. Our team of experienced consultants provides support on issues including: multi-stakeholder management, change management, strategic counselling and leadership coaching, crisis and issue management, and sustainability.
Aspirational brands need to be relevant, engaging and trustworthy. When surrounded by relentless noise, shouting is futile. Our seasoned experts help companies and organisations earn influence with agile communications, captivating messages and stories that stick. Using fact-based, emotive, and beautiful content, we move brand building, sales-driven marketing, or campaigning to the next level. Bellbird adds: insight and narrative, storytelling and copy, concepts and campaigns, content creation, art direction.
When prevailing opinion, fashions or regulations act as barriers for business, capturing hearts and minds matters even more. In such cases, brands need powerful positioning, evidence and arguments. We craft winning solutions. We target influencers, customers and decision-makers with compelling and engaging stories. We shape opinion to effect change. Our offering includes: influencer and multi-stakeholder engagement, commercial advocacy, purpose-driven communication, tactics and operational support, channel strategy, thought leadership.
Diversity and inclusion are crucial – and desirable – for business. But infusing these complex concepts into your day-to-day operations is a real challenge. We know how to take nice-sounding ideas, and pull them down to the ground, into the nitty-gritty of your daily operations. We boost your attractiveness as an employer, optimize team performance and outcome, and make your products and services a preferred choice for a larger pool of consumers. Our offering includes: strategy, solution-focused workshops; organisational design; toolboxes; trainers boot camps, conceptualisation and change communication.

By teaming up with our professional network and our talented friends, we manage to be just as small or as big as we need to create game-changing projects across many markets.
