Our international insight teams help our clients, which include advertisers and agencies, solve specific communications challenges. This is achieved through brand or thematic reviews, across a range of sectors to give a deeper understanding of who is saying what, where and why.

Circle Comms Insight


Our teams based in Europe, the US and Australia spend time with clients at the beginning of the process to truly understand their needs. This enables us to shape and clarify each individual brief.  We then use Ebiquity’s exhaustive advertising database and other sources to gain a complete picture of competitors’ through-the-line activity, from traditional advertising to digital, mobile and experiential. How do their messaging and media strategies differ by market?  How are these evolving overtime? We help our clients to really get under the skin.


We analyze vast amounts of information and find the campaigns, strategies and trends that clients really need to know about.  Our teams are experienced and passionate about marcomms which means we produce compelling reports, presentations and workshops that instigate debate, and get the creative juices flowing. We aim to provide insights for clients to value and to share.


By delivering learnings and recommendations that can be acted upon, we enable clients to make more effective decisions going forward.  Our independence ensures a more balanced, unbiased view on brands and sectors.  Our work helps to create campaign briefs, provides creative direction and alters activation strategies.
