Two Hives is run by Steve Bynghall and Kelly Andrews. We’re based in London, UK and provide consulting, research and professional writing services.

We have worked with global leading brands, smaller companies, professional practices, and software vendors and consultancies. We work extensively through the Digital Workplace Group and Step Two, based in Sydney. We prefer to form long term working relationships with clients.
And yes, we’re married!

Why ‘Two Hives’?
We sometimes get asked why we’re called Two Hives. We’ve worked in too many places where there are many hives of activity, but everyone is so busy that one hive doesn’t know what the other is doing.
Our aim is to help organisations where there are two hives or more to work in a more connected way.
