Making people think, feel and act differently.

An independent multi-sector communications consultancy, founded by senior agency practitioners.

Journalists and stakeholders are busier, harder to please and less receptive than at any other time and employees, consumers and partners are often cynical
by default.

We overcome this by building intelligent programmes that bind people in from the start.

This collaborative approach means creating content with, and for, audiences rather than talking at them and hoping they'll like what they hear.

The quality of a story isn't enough in today's communications landscape.


Our senior corporate communicators are unconstrained by restrictive structures larger agencies have in place. Being closer to our clients allows us to make more valuable contributions to their business.

  • Strategic planning
  • Programme development
  • Issues management
  • Change and internal communications
  • Provocation programmes
  • Proactive press office delivery


From the innovators, policy makers and healthcare professionals through to patients, we create and deliver insightful PR delivering the right information to take evidence- based decisions.

Our art is in aligning client communications with the priorities of the healthcare sector.

  • Market access strategies
  • Media relations
  • Regulatory and HTA approaches
  • Disease awareness
