The CI Group ethos is encapsulated in our philosophy of ‘Changing Behaviours’

WELCOME

CI Group is a fast growing family of specialist marketing communications agencies that collectively comprises the exceptional expertise, strategic, creative and executional talent necessary to create powerful brands and to market and promote brands in the B2B, B2C and B2E sectors.

Every client brief, at its core, invariably involves leading, encouraging or motivating behavioural change and behind each of our different skills lies this single purpose.

We orchestrate these specialist skills to ensure we deliver outstanding campaigns and also have the agility to partner with other enterprises and specialist businesses wherever it improves the effectiveness of our solutions.

This includes analogue/digital media, film and video, global partnerships to enable cross border activities and neuroscience based decision making expertise that dramatically increases the effectiveness of campaigns.

AS GOOD AS
OUR TEAM

CI Group companies comprise of over 50 talented people based in our London Soho and Banbury offices.

Energy, curious minds, collaborative, talent and effectiveness are in the DNA.

We’ve assembled a unique team of committed personalities that represent the depth and breadth of experience of agency talent necessary to consistently produce outstanding campaigns, that work.

Our greatest pride is the client testaments we receive as to their professionalism and the pleasure of working with them.

ABOUT US

The group started operations in 1996 when Corporate Innovations was founded.

After a success trade sale to Wembley PLC in 2000 by David Watt, he then later lead a management buy out, back from Wembley Plc in 2005 again taking the company private.

The company initially specialised in events and incentives quickly developing into rewards and promotions.

After a further eight years of successful years trading as a private company the decision was taken to add additional specialised services to offer clients more breadth and depth on marketing services, so the business began its acquisition strategy.
