Run by marketers, for marketing
What good is an idea if it can't be shared? The International Bunch was founded to foster collaboration and share ideas. The more you share your ideas, the more impact they have on the world around you. We are on a mission to make marketing better.
Run by marketers for marketers, we're a strategic marketing consultancy supporting research institutions, funders, publishers, libraries, and intermediaries with three distinct services - advisory, marketing and progressive thinking.
We're not a marketing agency, but a consultancy.
We're a 'partner for life', not just for a piece of content.
Our history stems back to 2016 when our CEO, Lou Peck, initially founded Lou Peck Consulting and then rebranded the consultancy as The International Bunch in 2018 to support the rapid growth of the business and became a limited business in 2019.
We have a deep understanding of the scholarly ecosystem, with practical experience in a wide range of areas.
We have an excellent track record of delivering projects on time and to budget as well as keeping our clients happy.
