What makes a Wavemaker?

What makes a Wavemaker?
Our attitude of Positive Provocation.

It’s in our DNA. It’s how we grow our clients and ourselves. We foster it by empowering every one of our people with knowledge, challenge and support.


‘The deep knowledge I have of my client's business.'


‘The confidence to challenge what’s gone before.’


‘The support to go further than I thought possible.’

Over my time in Wavemaker, I’ve had the opportunity to work across many different categories which has helped increase my knowledge of media planning and subsequently improved my ability to service my clients to the best potential.
