Fresh Thinking

Our insight led approach keeps our thinking, ideas and recommendations fresh.


We are open and transparent, welcoming debate and encouraging constructive challenge.


To become an extension of our client’s team we seek to understand people, situations and challenges in the round.


We judge ourselves by the results we deliver, always seeking to exceed expectations.

Our philosophy is built on openness, straight-talking and the power of teamwork. We are obsessed with building a service culture that stretches our team and rewards our clients. This delivers a uniquely close partnership with everyone we work with.

Our team and clients receive the very best expertise, from the caring and proactive culture of a purpose driven and highly innovative, entrepreneurial team.




Our main offices are in London and Brussels but our work is delivered by a diverse, multinational team based on three continents, speaking 15 languages with backgrounds in European and UK politics, change management, journalism, social and political campaigning, corporate communications, design and psychology.

This produces a powerful combination of insight led strategic thinking, campaigning know-how and creativity.

The results speak for themselves. Award winning, emotive, high impact and truly integrated campaigns seamlessly fused with traditional advocacy and public affairs.
