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.

Knowledge

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

Challenge

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

Support

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

Wavemaker embraces all kinds of difference - different voices, the other angle, the counter point. Together, we are positively provocative. That’s how we grow.

We will act decisively & with courage to alleviate bias and discrimination in every market in our network, and judge our clients and our partners on their own actions

We will set and measure clear goals for D&I across our business, globally and locally, and hold our leaders to account in delivering them

We will be vocal on what D&I means to Wavemaker both internally and externally, and amplify the voices of all of our people
