The Activate! Agency

Staff at The Activate! Agency have not just advised clients, they have set up and run some of the most successful boutique businesses in their sectors. From award winning record labels to award winning retail spaces, we have set them up and owned them. We don’t just talk and learn, we have the runs on the board from personal experience.
We know what it means to stand in your shoes… heels, runners or boots!


The Pocket Group

The guys at The Activate! Agency really know their stuff around licensed premises, particularly small bars.
Definitely the people to go to for DA & licensing requirements, or just dealing problem resolution and understanding what Councils or Licensing authority conditions mean.
The best no doubt.

Cafe Cre Asion

The team at The Activate! Agency were really helpful to me when I was a new start up. I knew what I was doing with my product, but I had no experience in running my business.  The team from the Activate! Agency came and sat in my business on a number of occasions, just watching, and each time suggested a few little changes, and set me some targets.

The changes were almost immediate in how they paid back in returns. I started taking more money immediately and within two months I had tripled my turnover. The team were really great at understanding me and what I was trying to do and then maximising this within my business setting.

The Owl House

More than anyone in this city, Richard at the Activate Agency, changed the culture of the city’s relationship with alcohol.

He really understood what the opportunity was and made it happen for all small bar operators, whether they know this or not, he drove the cultural and business change in this sector.

I’d totally recommend him and his company for any advice about starting up or adapting your business to maximize the opportunity.
