about us

We were born out of a desire to do things differently.

From one of our founder’s kitchens almost 10 years ago, we set out to create a new way for investors to understand political, policy and regulatory risk; our goal was to bring a new specialism to the market that made investor decision making more considered.

Articulating our vision wasn’t always easy, and it took almost a year to win our first project. But with the help of our first client and every one since, we’ve come a long way. Our diverse and talented team have advised on over 300 transactions totalling over $15bn in value and are widely considered to be the leading political risk advisory firm to the UK market.

Fast-forward 10 years, we’ve transformed from a political consultancy to a full-service communications agency, bringing market-leading insight, strategy and impact to our clients. Though our passion for breaking the rules continues and every day we seek to take our clients out of their comfort zone to help them achieve more.

We firmly believe that good communication can help build a better society, so we enable organisations to communicate clearly and transparently and with conviction and credibility.

A more complex world demands more clarity in communication, not less.

We don’t just look different, we are different.


We are also incredibly proud of our sister agency, onefourzero, a pioneering digital analytics consultancy and the market leader for digital due diligence globally. Find out more about their work here – https://onefourzerogroup.com

our principles

As reputation specialists we understand that a reputation is hard won and easily lost.

We take responsible business seriously. We advise our clients on how to be a force for good in the world, and we practice what we preach.

Our principles guide our behaviours and our view of the world, driven by our founding desire to do things differently:

leadership matters: organisations can either be agents of change or subject to change, we think that everyone should shape their own future

people first: we recognise we are only as good as the people we employ, so we recruit the best people for the job and give them the fredom to perform. If you are looking for show ponies look elsewhere

independence is a state of mind: we are  proud of being an an independent agency because it gives us freedom. Freedom from the pressures of corporate interests to think creatively and long term, to challenge convention and put our clients and our people first. Our independence makes us who we are.

diversity is essential: we believe diversity brings strength, innovation and success. From the way we recruit, to the way we structure our clietns teams, and even down to where we sit in the office, we work hard at breaking down silos, disrupting groupthink and promoting opportunity for all

sustainably successful: we believe in responsible business and the role businesses should play in society. We promote a responsible approach to business internally and with our clients. Our approach to ESG (environmental, social and governance issues) focuses on how bsuinesses can create sustainable value and we practice what we preach

continuous improvement: we will never stand still, we are always searching for improvement for our work, our people and our clients
