We help the world’s leading brands communicate through creative-led experiences. In the past, we’ve specialised in face-to-face events. In recent years, we’ve shifted to more sustainable practices; increasing our digital and virtual experiences for clients.
We now specialise in a myriad of formats, combining online and offline techniques to produce impactful results. Hybrid experiences that aren’t only futureproof, but also resonate with audiences in ways unlike ever before.
We work with businesses to gain a deep understanding of their audiences and communications goals. We then use this knowledge to create truly bespoke, engaging campaigns that get results for our clients, regardless of the setting or platform. Whatever the nature of your business, however straightforward or complex your objectives, we can help you communicate: live.
The world is changing.
Driven by factors like the current climate, market uncertainty, and sustainability efforts; businesses and communities are evolving. It’s now more important than ever to connect and engage with people through authentic human experiences. To do this in a way that is genuine, you must first understand the person.
It’s by focussing on the collective individual that we make an experience powerful. Whatever your goal, nothing is more effective in creating lasting impact than providing people with their own unique journey. This means that the tools and techniques that were often seen as ways to enhance and amplify a live experience, are now taking centre stage.
Interactive content sessions, online communities, experiential installations, AR, VR, livestreams and other new technologies are just some of the tools we use to ensure our clients’ messages are brought to life and understood.
We understand every business has their own challenge. B2B or B2C. Internal or external. Physical or digital.
Sometimes we create communications events, hospitality experiences or exhibitions to help B2B marketing teams generate leads or change the way customers think. Other times, for B2C companies, we produce experiential activations, stunts and roadshows to bring a product to life, build a buzz and create a new army of brand advocates.
Some clients come to us for our remote and virtual capabilities in order to stand out from the crowd or produce sustainable experiences. Others simply want us for our creative production or event management expertise to ensure a smooth, enjoyable experience for guests.
We can work with internal comms teams on employer branding, motivation, engagement and talent retention – or even with sales teams on an exciting incentive travel programme that improves business performance.
“The quality of being able to continue over a period of time” – For Clive, people are our sustainability legacy.
Leaning on social sustainability and focusing on human connection, we build virtual communities for people to express themselves and support each other. To encourage inclusion and further promote community wellbeing, we invite clients’ end customers to be a part of an experience and run activations and engaging touchpoints. Ultimately, we ensure our clients goals are economically sustainable.
Going Green is more than a Fad.
Clive recognises that our day-to-day activities impact on the environment in both positive and negative ways. We aim to minimise harmful effects whenever we can – Clive Environmental Policy, 2013
This mission statement has seen us transition from face-to-face events to reducing carbon footprints over the years through virtual venues, live broadcasts, and even holographic hosts!
