Three years ago we began a journey of transforming H+K London into the Global Center of Creative Strategy for our network. Last night we were proud to be recognised as the 2017 UK Consultancy of the Year by the Holmes Report.

Putting insight, creativity and clients at the heart of everything we do has led to the development of a suite of new products and services for our clients under the umbrella of our 3PCommunications™ model, which were specifically called out by the Holmes Report...

‘A clear focus on such areas as creativity (including a partnership with Hyper Island), behavioral insights and purpose-led marketing has paid off to rare effect…’

‘Much of the new business, meanwhile, reflects an ability to build purpose into a client’s creative positioning along with an insight-led approach that has driven behavioral change work … and often utilises the Sherlock+ digital platform to address influencer marketing.’

At H+K we are always in beta and will continue to embrace change to better equip our network for the challenges we and our clients face now and in the future. 2017 will see us continue to innovate with a new creative and business pop-up consultancy. We will launch Made to Measure – the H+K way for performance reporting and measurement. We will develop new initiatives around our 3PCommunications™ Performance + Purpose Consultancy.

Please get in touch if you are interested in hearing more about our Smarter Behavioral Insights Unit, Sherlock+, 3PCommunications™ or just would like to find our more about some of our initiatives.

Overall, H+K was shortlisted for 12 SABRE awards. H+K won two Gold Sabre awards and an In2 Sabre award for their work with NORAD, which included The Enlightenment Trail and DARON. In the geographic category H+K won in Africa for SA Tomorrow, the Johannesburg Stock Exchange, and H+K Denmark won the Energy and Natural Resources category for Dong Energy.
