  • You know how to build an affinity with your clients and what they stand for; we are extensions of them and the goals they have, not arm’s length contractors
  • You are able to tune-in to many situations — be it with clients, your colleagues, the media or industries your clients service — and then turn those insights into solutions focussed actions
