Dundee: The Son of a Legend Returns Home
After years of tactical performance campaigns, Australia’s market share in the U.S. remained stagnant – even though outbound tourism was on the rise. So in 2018 Tourism Australia pivoted their approach, hijacking the Super Bowl with a powerful lead-generation campaign masquerading as the next big Hollywood blockbuster reboot.

To date, 9 million fewer people have been exposed to hate speech on Twitter.

IBM. A leading brand. A lasting brand.
How did a 107-year old technology company survive a category that would inevitably be transformed beyond recognition? IBM not only survived the massive change, but also shaped society and the industry at large, using effective communications to bring the world consistent thought leadership throughout. Today, ‘responsiveness’, ‘consistency’, and ‘commitment’ to the brand has distinguished IBM as the 12th most valuable brand in the world, and the #1 most valuable pure B2B brand in the world - and its revenues are growing.
