We are a creative agency that builds brands. We drive sales, manage reputations, engage consumers and get our clients talked about.
We offer a 360 degree solution, from providing strategic consultancy and developing business plans to implementing campaigns. With social networks having the power to make or break businesses we are social first.
We believe that the next generation of super-brands will come from markets such as China, India and Brazil. As a result, though we are a global agency with clients worldwide, a current focus is on helping Chinese companies expand outside China.
To make that happen we’ve assembled a mixed team of Western and Chinese marketing experts, with an in-depth knowledge of both markets.
MESSAGE FROM THE CHAIRMAN
“I worked as marketing advisor for numerous tech firms, such as Microsoft and Intel, prior to 1999. But I realised with a bang when The Cluetrain Manifesto was published that year just how incredibly powerful the internet would become as a force which could change markets, workforces and organisations. I apply many of its principles in my work as a social strategy consultant.
I have been privileged to help US and Chinese organisations, large and small, engage with their employees and businesses in more human ways and with a natural style. With social, we can do all this with numbers which show our progress and prove business benefit (as a Physics and Corporate Finance grad, these are very reassuring!)."
