Who is People & Company?
We're three people (Bailey, Kai, and Kevin) who made a company.
And what do you guys do?
We build fan clubs.
In the language o' business, we're a strategy company that helps organizations build communities—real ones filled with humans who genuinely care and keep showing up. Cue sizzle reel!
What do you mean by "community?" I get confused by that word.
Mostly, it's just a group of people who care about the same thing. We work a lot with communities of power users, volunteers, and other tight-knit groups.
Because people who care are more powerful than people who don't. We're talking about the true fans, the sincere advocates. We find these folks, get to know them, and design ways to supercharge what they're up to. Power to the people!
So, what does that look like?
An ambassador program for a surf brand, resources for an NGO's volunteers, lovefests for organizers, surprises for big fans. In short: we stoke their fire. 🔥
You get paid for that?
Indeed! Pretty rad, huh?
Favorite dessert on planet earth?
Ice Kachang. Easy.
That looks delicious. Okay, how do I work with y'all?
Each project starts with just getting to know each other. Reach out.
Cool. Do you do workshops?
Hell yes. We love presenting and always bring prizes.
We also do fun projects to stay sharp. For instance, we made a short film about an inventor named Dado Banatao, Kevin (Huynh) maintains a directory of the world's Kevin Huynhs and Bailey runs a fan club for a two ton fish.
... It weighs two tons?
Yes! Mola Molas also eat jelly fish...and sometimes get eaten by jellyfish.
