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.’

Since I started 10 months ago I have really been impressed at how we all share knowledge with each other. I have challenged myself to further develop my digital skills and become a hybrid strategist.
