Offering a strong strategic communications base and talented content creators, it was an easy choice to trust in their experience across multiple marketing disciplines.”

“Our focus on business-to-business marketing and communications brings significant synergy with organisations like Grant Thornton UAE and we’ve been impressed with the organisation’s openness to bringing some more fun and life into the way the UAE offices communicate with their highly corporate audiences. Grant Thornton has been steadily growing during this period of economic recovery and we’re delighted to now be on board to help accelerate and promote its success.”
