French the verb to listen is entendre, from the same root as entender, to understand in Portuguese.

entendre sen;re

The Italians go a step further. They use the verb sen;re, both for listen and feel.

The Listening Agency is a consultancy specialized in helping brands to understand and engage with people in the digital age. We employ ethnographic and innova;ve qualita;ve research methodologies to get closer to the lived experiences of people allowing our clients to beFer understand their aGtudes and behaviors as consumers and as communicators. Based in So Paulo we are also an aliate of TWResearch in London.

Our name reects what we do: listen, observe and analyze the behavior of individuals and society as a whole. It is also a reec;on of the cultural context in which we operate. On a daily basis we are impacted by new communica;on technologies. Given this crescendo of conversa;ons and sharing of experiences and opinion, we believe that the greatest challenge for decision makers is knowing lies in the challenge of listening. Not just to hear, but the strategic use of the insights provided through ac;ve listening.

Our name also reects who we are. We are part of a country that is rapidly changing, rediscovering itself and emerging as a global reference. Our mix of backgrounds, skills and languages allow us to be part of a growing dialogue between Brazilians, our culture, our brands and the outside world.

Ethnographic Research
When people talk listen completely. Don't be thinking what you're going to say. Most people never listen. Nor do they observe. You should be able to go into a room and when you come out know everything that you saw there and not only that. If that room gave you any feeling you should know exactly what it was that gave you that feeling
