Our team

We've built a team with extensive experience from a range of backgrounds including media, politics, business, the City, education and the third sector.

We believe that sector knowledge and specialist expertise is critical to working alongside clients and delivering the most informed advice.

Outside Hawthorn

If we're in a position to help, we think we should. We provide charity days for the team so they can commit time to causes they personally care about.

We partner with Fulham Cross Academy. Our partnership allows pupils to benefit from work experience through to internships with us, and our team visit the Academy to support teaching of marketing and business modules, as well as giving careers advice. We also support Bradfield Club which has existed for over a hundred years, offering young people, and the surrounding community in Southwark, a safe environment in which to play, learn, eat and find individual support. Our team’s 12 hour hike over 40km in the Yorkshire Peaks raised over £10,000.

We back one-off initiatives such as The Firefly Project launched by Quintessentially Foundation to support London's children and young people. Our 530km team cycling challenge raised more than £400,000.

We are proud to work pro bono for Gemini Untwined, which pioneers research and treatment for cranially conjoined twins.
