"We have worked with De-Still on strategic marketing projects across several of our brands. Ken has provided truly unique and creative input to our Prestige global brand building strategy. In particular his contribution to building a forward innovation slate has been appreciated. His guidance on collaborations and project delivery is very much valued. I would wholeheartedly recommend him to prospective clients."

“Ken Grier has been an invaluable consultant to the Lalique team in its purchase of The Glenturret distillery. He is currently working with the team across all aspects of the brand, and visitor centre repositioning. His vision, strategic acumen, creativity and brand building expertise are making a huge contribution to the reawakening of Scotland’s oldest working distillery” -
Silvio Denz, Chairman, Lalique
“We started working with Ken Grier to launch our advisory board and we decided to work together so he could bring his expertise in the liquor industry, marketing, luxury goods and his life experience. This relationship has been a success we are extremely happy to have him on the board, not only his knowledge has been a great help for us, as well his amazing creativity and curiosity but more important than anything his positivity. I'm a true believer that in any type of human relationship the positivity and joy of life is a key ingredient in the success, and Ken has both elements together. I'm very happy to continue discovering the path that we have together and very enthusiastic about the results that this relationship is going to bring."
Santiago Suarez, Founder and Chairman of Mezcal Amores
"Ken Grier has been an invaluable sounding board and external marketing counsel for Dragon and several of its clients over the last two years. His creativity, positivity and ‘can do’ mentality means that every task he approaches is given the benefit of an extraordinary mix of attributes. In particular, once he is engaged on behalf of a client, Ken goes well beyond the norm in devoting significant mindspace and devotion to ensuring that he adds real value and moves the dial.”
Charlie Methven, Dragon Advisory
“We recently worked with Ken on a brand DNA & positioning project for a premium Single Malt Whisky brand. He brought clarity, passion, creativity and a good amount of challenge to the issues we were facing, and quickly brought us to a new place which will enable us to build our brand going forward. He did all this during the weird virtual world of Lockdown, yet managed to make the process enjoyable & energising for us as a team. A consummate pro with bags of invaluable experience and insight, and a great ‘super-brain’ to add onto any team when you have an issue to solve.”
