The Team 

Our portfolio varies from some of the world’s largest technology brands to up and coming industry challengers. Whether it’s exploring the role of artificial intelligence in modelling the future of healthcare, or finding creative ways to talk about the inner workings of elevators, or working with an Oscar-winning cinematographer to raise awareness of the part data storage plays in creating art, our days are always different, but rarely ever dull.

With technology rapidly becoming an inextricable part of every industry, our work spans multiple sectors, from healthcare, financial services, automotive, marketing, entertainment and even law. This variety, along with our belief that the best communications programmes are integrated, means our team members have the chance to contribute to, and learn from, a whole host of people and practices.

As a team, we believe strongly that we are a sum of all our parts – we pride ourselves on a broad spectrum of talents, experiences and expertise which all come together to tackle complex tasks and deliver outstanding results. We highly value positivity and community – we are always there for each other, during the good times and especially during the bad ones.

Plus, as you might expect from a Tech team, we love innovation – we take every chance to learn new and interesting ways to view the world, approach its challenges and tell great stories.
