GILLIAN CARTER

Marketing Director

Varied in Our Disciplines. United by Our Human-Truth Curiosity.

We are diverse in our experience – ranging from strategists to storytellers, psychologists and anthropologists – and everything in between. Yet, we unite around our shared pursuit of Human Truth and our mission to unlock its transformative power.

Our TEAM

We promise to change the way you think.

We help you change your world

100% Human

It’s not a value so much as it is a promise – that we will show up every day as our full selves and encourage all those we work with and partner with to do the same. We thrive through open and honest communication. We value the lasting connections that emerge from a place of vulnerability, mutual respect and trust. We are kind, humble and empathetic.

We serve an ideal larger than the “golden rule” – we treat others as we know they want to be treated, because we took the time to ask them first. To be good people is not a goal at Brandtrust, it’s simply what is most true of us. It’s the ocean we swim in, the foundation of our culture, and the fountain from which springs all of our potential. Never be afraid to show up, always feel all the feels, always be 100% HUMAN.

Core Values

Curiosity

We are innately and insatiably curious.

  • Open-minded and inclusive
  • Constantly learning
  • Never assume anything

  • Our reason for being is to seek the truth, wherever that may lead us. This makes us comfortable in places of uncertainty, attracted to fresh thinking, and allergic to closed-minded hubris.

    Collaboration

    We think and do our best together.

  • Radically collaborative
  • Seek and arrive together
  • The power of “yes, and!”

  • We create clarity, find solutions and unlock potential through the synthesis of diverse ideas and perspectives. We choose the best path forward together, supporting each other and doing what it takes to achieve success for all.

    Constant Improvement

    Positivity and possibility propel us.

  • Appreciative in all we do
  • Optimistic and energetic
  • The power of “not yet!”

  • As individuals and as an organization we are continuously improving – the embodiment of a “growth mindset”. We infuse this energy into everything we do, creating a climate of irresistible vibrancy that inspires action.

    OUR COMMITMENT TO FIGHT FOR SOCIAL JUSTICE AND RACIAL EQUITY

    We will no longer accept the injustice and inequality our Black and Brown brothers and sisters endure.

    No more silence. No excuses. No slogans. No platitudes.

    We will confront our own truths and confess we need to do more. Much more.

    We will fervently engage our talent and resources and commit ourselves to being an active part of the collective solution to dismantle unjust systems.

    We will listen.
    We will learn.
    And, we will change.

    100% You-Centered

    Are you curious? Motivated to discover the truths that unite us as humans? Driven to activate these truths for brand transformation? Discover opportunities to join us. We’re better, together.
