The s&h Scout Network is an exclusive, global group of cultural observers and influencers who gather and analyze local cultural signals. Their inputs provide strategic and creative guides for global brands. The Scout Network has Scouts in over 25 countries globally, and we’re always adding more.
We eat, breathe and sleep with culture at sparks & honey. At the heart of the Cultural Intelligence System, Q™, is the sparks & honey Cultural Database, containing all the Scout signals, data from our multi-disciplinary teams based in New York, and Los Angeles, and our Human Network that surrounds our agency. This system provides us with a direct real-time pipeline to the edge of culture where change happens.
What is the role of a Scout? As a Scout you work as a freelance cultural observer, and are retained by sparks & honey, for work on periodic custom projects with our clients. Scouts use their networks and skills to explore and collect intelligence in their areas or topics of interest. It is through this process that we answer the challenges presented to us by clients about consumer behaviors and explain cultural phenomenon. The information you provide can be used to create global insights for our Daily Culture Briefings and in our global client work.
