and develop brilliant creative ideas off the back of the strategy work
undertaken by the Content Strategy team, while the multi-disciplined producers
oversee production and project management. Content Creation works across all
types of content, be it original content creation in video, digital,
experiential and social content (such as always-on editorial and community
management) or in commercial partnerships with a brand or media owner.

engage with, the content MBA produces. Content Distribution is predominantly
made up of the SEO function but also other predominantly organic distribution
methods such as influencer outreach.

broad understanding of all the services we offer and can lucidly explain them
to anyone who asks - be it planners, clients or industry contacts.
