The Hunch and Partners

Why the name "The Hunch"?

Human Instinct is Prime

Intuition and feel often get forgotten in the highly quantatively focused business landscape. The Hunch is merely a name used to address the relevance of our gut feel and the importance of the human factor. We also have a Hunch that people are kind of important, so we take a sustainable approach to your business.

How can We help you?


Not sure yet. The voice The Hunch provides is one amongst many, but with a primary focus on audience our customers are all considered unique and all data, customised approach and solutions are the same.

Who are the Partners?


Sometimes our client is the partner, sometimes it's an IT Helpdesk, or an offshore resource. The Hunch is simply a conduit in the realisation of a solution and humble enough to know when we need the support of others. Over 20 years of business experience has leant itself to the philosophy of one must know what they don't know.

About Our Services

Our Experience


Founder, Stuart Holmes, has 20 years recruitment and audience specialisation behind him. The Hunch has a well balanced blend of life, learnt and street experience. With an increasing amount of time now pointed towards the digital and cloud The Hunch is progressive, but with enough grey to recommend a cautious fail fast and move on approach. Looking for datasets where stereotypes can be used is always a great way to test audience and get value for money. 

Uniqueness costs a lot more than Audiences who have what The Hunch calls a Diminishing Difference. diagram (in Blog). It's a theory that basically states that there becomes less and less differences within a stereotype the more you drill down. 

The Hunch is a small to medium business specialist in Audience, Cloud and People Services. Everything from Systems, Marketing General IT and cyber security.

Our Approach


We'd love to say everything is measurable, but wise enough to say sometimes fast delivery for campaign work requires a practical approach. We provide a blended approach to sales and marketing between technology and nouse.

we've found that business success a combination of great insights, available tools and necessary outomes. Integration is the eventual landing place, but not at the expense of eveything. Through an honest briefing with you the best results can be found. We first look at what can't be done and what shouldn't be done, whether its data collection, script, digital, or audience attraction. 

Once we establish the can'ts then anything else is up to being tested. We are brave and different and we are noticed. Suffering from Original Thinking is great for some things, but terrible to market to. 

Why Us?
