The brilliant talent that we have hired from this industry will allow us to develop focused digital strategies at this crucial moment, delivering on our client mantra of “grow every day”. This is underpinned by our unique data and tech capabilities, in particular our digital demand tracker which gives us real time insights to inform our approach.”
