About us

Lemento is a consulting firm specialized in strategy, branding and change. We are convinced that the sustainable combination of know-how, experience, creativity and passion is crucial to realize strong projects. Our goal is clear: to create real added value for our clients in a professional and dynamic way.
What do we stand for, today and tomorrow?

We are Lemento. An agency on a mission to empower businesses, brands & people.


We want to free the business worlds from “blah blah blah” consultants.

What are our values?

Flexibility, Integrity, Respect and Expertise are our core values. Passion is the force that continuously reinforces these 4.

Extreme customer focus as a motto

At Lemento we go 100% for every job and if necessary we will do the impossible. “Screw It, Let’s Do It” Richard Branson once said. And Muhammad Ali talked about “Impossible is nothing”. Both statements fit into our business philosophy. If it is better for our client, we are happy to make an exception to the rule. Commitment at the top.

Honesty as base: transparent and reliable

We firmly believe that integrity is the foundation of successful partnerships. Our communication is therefore clear and open, free of hidden agendas. And a word is a word. We say what we do and we do what we say, we honor our commitments.

Appreciation in every interaction as a foundation

Respect is at the heart of our relationship with all our stakeholders. And of course we extend this to respect for the world around us. Because as a company, we have an important role to play in our society. Conscious about the environment, socially responsible and focused on good governance.

Knowledge and experience as a lever for success

In the expert role, we feel comfortable. It allows us to come up with custom creative or out-of-the-box solutions. As experts, we are not easily satisfied; we set the bar high. And since part of our business also has to do with design, we pay attention to every detail. That’s good practice. After all, without experts you don’t create perfection.

Drive as a differentiating force

Without passion, Lemento cannot exist. What we do comes from our hearts. We go to sleep with it and wake up with it. And we never get tired of it. Even when the going gets tough. We never give up and always go the extra mile. Being passionate cannot be taught, it’s a way of life.

Netwerk organization

Lemento is a network organization. We assemble a customized team for each project. Team members include consultants, project managers, graphic designers and web developers. We always look for a perfect match between the core competencies of the team members and the deliverables of the project.
