This appreciation, combined with Hotwire’s experience in running international campaigns and track record on strategy and execution, made it the right partner for SHL.’

‘As a business that itself treats talent spotting and development as a true entrepreneurial endeavour, we are thrilled to have been appointed as SHL’s agency.’
