Hamish talks about joining dentsu UK & Ireland as Executive Director for its Media Line of Business and why he made the move. He touches upon Wendy Clark's arrival and how their experience is complementing the new leadership team with the focus always being on their clients.

With such clients ranging from Co-op, Vodafone and Jaguar Land Rover to B&Q; Hamish exudes excitement at the prospect of opportunity to help them in this changing world. There's a whole host of agencies within dentsu's media business and the biggest benefit being the access to a range of tools from CRM all the way through to creativity. In Hamish's words 'change is always good fun'. 

Suki and Hamish further discuss growth for both dentsu and its clients. They were already undergoing a transformational change prior to Covid-19, but this has just helped to accelerate those changes. 

They'll only experience growth if their clients grow and so the collaboration between all its agencies couldn't be more important right now.
