INSTID (INSTITUTE FOR IDENTITY) WAS FOUNDED IN 2008 TO HELP COUNTRIES AND COMPANIES ACHIEVE THEIR OWN POSSIBLE BEST. INSTID GUIDES THEM TO THEIR GREATER PURPOSE AND UNLOCKS THEIR SELF-ESTEEM TO ACHIEVE IT.
We believe, somewhat heretically for this liberal age, that every person is born with a purpose. More so, that anything that evokes a “we”: nations, companies, places – also each have a particular mission. As per “the acorn principle” (that an acorn can only grow into an oak), we believe that people, from individuals to nations, should know themselves and live purposefully. As they work to realise their potential, they become more focused, effective, successful, fulfilled, and happy.

- Branding and PR agencies
