by SevenC3 Client: Grant Thornton

The brief

Position Grant Thornton UK as the go-to professional services firm for dynamic mid-market businesses with ambitions to grow. As part of that, help Grant Thornton to earn and own the ‘growth experts’ label in the wider market.

Do this in a creative, innovative and dynamic way – one that shows Grant Thornton has the capacity to lead the field in the same way that its clients do.

Content also draws on the expertise of the 40,000-plus employees that work across Grant Thornton’s global member firm network, spanning 130 countries.

  • Two high-quality print issues a year
