    We are part of Vivendi, which means we have unparalleled access to entertainment and culture. These are incredibly powerful launch pads from which brands can make a significant cultural impact.

    Being part of Vivendi sets us apart from all the other networks. This means we think about culture, not just comms. We believe that brands rightly have a role to play in culture, how they show up in people’s lives and the wider world, how they entertain, inform, and how they make a positive impact on the wider world. This is cultural impact. This is how brands make a meaningful difference to people’s lives.

    Meaningful Brands

    Our proprietary research study Meaningful Brands (that spans 395,000 people worldwide, 30 markets, 21 industries and 2,000 brands each year) discovered that:


    of brands could disappear and no one would care


    of brands are seen as trustworthy


    of people support brands who focus on purpose over profit

    It's these key findings that have led to the creation of our Meaningful Brands strategic framework. A unique approach that has allowed us to understand that a brand’s value - how meaningful it is to its consumers - is defined by a combination of 'functional', 'personal' and 'collective' benefits. Used across strategy and planning teams in all our agencies around the world, Meaningful Brands acts as the 'glue' in our integrated process and provides a common approach to strategic thinking to ensure we deliver meaningful business growth for our clients.
