Sheffield, Manchester, Liverpool and Leeds
Atkins UK and Europe CEO came to us with an ambition to grow their business in the North of England.
This was a new area for Atkins’ consultancy, whose engineering and design sectors have traditionally been focused on the public sector in the South East. We therefore needed to build their brand value with key members of their stakeholder community across the North of England.
By working closely with the multi-disciplinary team, we identified targets in Sheffield, Manchester, Liverpool and Leeds and began a process of engagement. We kept the Atkins team well-briefed on political developments and identified a series of potential projects which have subsequently been focused on, such as the Olympic Legacy Park in Sheffield. And we have hosted a number of meetings and interactions with commercial and political contacts across the North of England and London.
Our work and insight has led to us being successfully retained by Atkins over the previous two years.
