Why we’re different

Most of our directors are engineers or scientists, which you may think strange for a content marketing and PR agency. But it means that we really understand engineers: where they look for information, the content that appeals to them, how they make decisions. As a result, we’re able to create great content for you without unduly burdening your valuable product marketing and engineering resources.

We invest in people rather than premises, brains rather than bricks, because it’s experience, knowledge and talent that creates real value for our clients. What’s more, we’ve developed some of the most advanced digital resources of any B2B technical agency, enabling us to precisely target your messages in a timely way. That’s how we achieve the outstanding results that are so valued by innovative start-ups and blue chip companies alike.

And as a member of the Next 15 communications group, which employs over 1250 people in 14 countries, we offer a cost-effective global service or just a great local one, whichever you need.
