The agency celebrated double-digit growth across all its regions and practices, with its North American revenue recording a 13 per cent rise with numerous high-profile wins, including Citrix Online.

Other wins across the network include the Shanghai Towers, Tokyo 2020 Olympic Committee, United Nations Foundation and Roche/Genentech.
