Our Values

Adaptable 

You approach challenges with an open mind, curiosity and a desire to help. An ability to see the possibilities first, nurture and adapt new ideas no matter the source, is part of your make up.  You understand there is no such thing as mission impossible.

You understand the thinking behind taking calculated risks and that this is how you break new ground, drive initiative and push commercial acumen.

You understand that 11th hour curveballs are part and parcel of dealing with clients in our industry. You know how to remain calm and keep a level ahead to find a solution even when the going gets tough. 

Passion

It is an ache inside you to deliver more than what the client wants – to deliver something they have never even dreamt of all within the framework of timelines, budgets and demonstrable ROI. You will support and inspire others to deliver this passion by encouraging and guiding.

Integrity 

Everything you do is done with integrity, from building client relationships to working with your agency teams. You live with a high level of respect for others and expect the same of those around you.

You strive to do the ‘right thing not the easy thing’. You are honest, objective and don’t buy into politics.  You deliver on personal and team commitments and manage expectations when circumstances change.

Team Spirit

Collaboration is key, at Two Palms we believe the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. We chip in, share the work and responsibility to succeed together. 

You believe in the team – although you recognise individual success you do so within the team environment, acknowledging all that were involved.  You work to positively impact those around you and cultivate relationships at every touchpoint across the business. 

Creativity 

You are interested and interesting. You’re curious and confident to share your ideas. You actively encourage the ideal that ideas can come from anywhere and encourage those around you to input into the process and communicate their points of view.  You guide their thinking to ensure they are adding value and continue to build their points of reference to allow them to add greater value.
