In 1996, Nicola Feeney resigned from her marketing position and opened a marketing consultancy practice. By 2000 the Internet and all manner of digital solutions were emerging, emails, My Space, Facebook and websites. She began to recommend these and in turn her clients asked if she could assist in producing and executing these in the market. Nicola was one of a very few women to own a marketing business in the late nineties and at the same time she welcomed three babies, juggling her own businesses successfully as a working Mum. Her small business grew and today is a leading marketing consultancy agency located in Adelaide, South Australia. 

The growth of marketing was ignited by the digital era which led to prolific competition entering the market; it seemed everyone wanted to be a digital marketer. Today, there are thousands of digital businesses and the marketing industry remains largely unregulated. Despite the temptation to morph into a purely digital agency, Nicola believes that for marketing to be truly effective and make an undeniable difference you need to look at the big picture first — and only then activate campaigns and projects. Simply put, combining the thinking of a consultancy with the execution of an agency FEENEY solves hairy audacious problems. We’ll ask the questions that go beyond marketing, to uncover the truth behind what’s required to achieve your vision.

Our History


Winning brands are built by choice, not chance. Strategy is at the heart of what we do.


Better on purpose.


Apply our knowledge and understanding of strategy, creative and brand and strive to surpass expectations in quality, innovation and value.


Integrity -  Always be honest.

Passion - Be open minded.

Impactful - Address needs not wants.

Collaboration - Share knowledge.

Caring - Understand what matters most.

We believe that market-leading brands have one thing in common: investment in smart marketing.

They don’t mindlessly bounce back and forth between flavours of the week and “best practices.”


Instead, they build and focus on — the story and the strategy, - this propels brands and wins’ market share.
