Services & Offerings

Innovation, Trends & Insights

We are always exploring cultural shifts and converting them into opportunities for brands.

Internal Communications

People join cultures, not companies. When companies understand, live and share their own culture, they naturally attract the best talent, and inspire and empower employees to own, innovate and drive business results. We help shape culture.


Finding the best channels to speak to your audience and making the most of those channels is integral to the effectiveness of a campaign. Through careful planning and buying, brands can optimize the reach of their messages.

Brand Building

We grow our clients’ business by building brands. Finding solutions that are global when needed, or as singular as a simple human emotion. We build pioneering brands with purpose. We exist to help companies navigate the market, and drive long-term growth.


Forging strong relationships between brands and consumers, our deep partnerships with social platforms give our clients a leading edge when developing interactive plans. Building on that knowledge, we use insights from social data to develop social strategies, run campaigns, deliver contagious content, manage communities and measure success.

Sector Expertise

We have accumulated massive sector and market expertise throughout the J. Walter Thompson agency’s lifetime, giving our clients a unique advantage. We know government, health, sports, retail and a lot more.


We connect consumers with brands in ways that transcend conventional means of interaction. These experiences result in immersive experiences leveraging VR or Artificial Intelligence, as well as interactive live entertainment or IOT innovations. We aim to connect people to brands in a way that inspires and requires action.

Digital Transformation

Whether transforming an existing digital strategy or developing a new plan for the future, we build brands for digital. At the intersection of innovation, creative and analytics, we solve problems and deliver a measurable impact on our clients’ business.

Each trend in the Future 100 MENA Report is part of a growing phenomenon; that Middle Eastern consumers are increasingly identifying themselves as ‘global citizens’.
