Mindshare’s birth in 1997 shifted the focus from media as a pure commodity to media as a change agent.

Our ambition was to go beyond the traditional media descriptors of “Optimise, Capitalise, Maximise.” We will not be defined by the formulaic definitions of media. Mindshare’s story is about teamwork. It’s why we called ourselves Mindshare in the first place!

We were designed to be a global network, balanced in every region, with clients benefitting from both global and local insights.
