We build relationships between brands & people

Timeless brands transcend the moment to become part of the fabric of their customers' lives.
We know this because we've built these brands.

We are The Brand Whisperers®

Across four decades and counting, our Kansas City-based marketing agency has put our unique Brand Whispering® philosophy to work creating connected, meaningful experiences.

Brand Whispering® is a nimble approach that enables us to listen, understand, respond and deliver strategic, creative solutions that work. It's a flexible, fresh way to view challenges and opportunities.

Making a difference, not just things

Our expertise is in animal health, financial services and health & beauty, but the principles of Brand Whispering® allow us to unlock the potential in any brand. The sum of our team's individual expertise means we partner with you to reveal the heart of your brand regardless of the audience or industry.

Bourbon with Brenda

Listening is part of leading. That's why Co-Chief Executive Officer Brenda Andresen raises trendy topics (and a glass) with the dreamers, doers and difference-makers who inspire the future of business.

You don’t work with an agency, you work with its people

Movie buffs. Punctuation nerds. Wine aficionados. Marketing experts (obviously). We’ve assembled a wicked smart, crazy cool, insanely fun team that plays well together and with others.

“S&A is a brilliant melding of strategic thinking and highly creative solutions, cultivated in an atmosphere of collaboration and respect. What I love best, however, is that no one person has a monopoly on the creative idea. Everyone can be a source of creative inspiration.”
