Technology is changing our lives in astonishing and unimaginable ways and, in media, we are lucky enough to be working at the very heart of this change. However, the way we think about media is vital to unlocking the greatest opportunities for our clients and producing our best work. We define media as the space where content, audiences, data and technology meet.

This media playground is an exciting, vibrant and fast evolving space - a space that’s buzzing with innovation and creativity. A space where new people behaviours, habits and routines are fast emerging.


We invest heavily in staff development- training is extensive from the most junior level with mock pitches, cross-media training, and learning modules. In January 2012 Huddle was launched- an innovative future planning discussion collaborating across our global network:
