Dearest clients and friends, “Standing still is moving backwards.”
We don’t know who first said these powerful words. Some say it’s a phrase from Alice in Wonderland, others think it’s sports-related but the most important thing is that these words hold a lot of truth within them. In a fast changing (digital) world, you can’t be the one standing still. Today, this quote is special for other motives than the above.
The quote is one of the reasons why DearMedia was founded already 6 years ago, in 2009. Our mission has always been to help you, our clients, understand what was going on in these rapidly changing times and create strategy to prepare you for a digital future. When things got rough, we wanted to be the reliable partner that helped you move forward in times of transformation.
But standing still is moving backwards and we too (the ones who advise you to keep calm and go on) can’t be the ones to stand still. It is exactly for this reason that we didn’t hesitate when Duval Union knocked on our doors, and why we’ve decided to take the leap forward with our team.
Therefore, we’re tremendously excited to announce that DearMedia, as from today, will continue to move forward as Duval Union Consulting.
Becoming the strategic center of the Duval Union network will grant us more possibilities, which enable us to provide you with the best advice in the domains of Digital Transformation, Digital Strategy, Social Media and Marketing Strategy. It will allow us to achieve our ambitions and the further grow our company into the leading consulting player in our market.

The collaborative model of Duval Union will combine our strategic expertise with both experienced marcomm services and impressive tech-makers.
Although we are scaling up now, the way we approach clients and their projects will remain the same. We’ve always believed in a bootstrapped, pragmatic way of solving problems and this will never change. We have more to offer now and since we’re moving onward, we’re not standing still.
Our entire team is sincerely looking forward to this new chapter and will remain as devoted as ever to help your organization master digital transformation. We will be available to provide you with more in-depth explanation if desired.
Talk soon! 😉
