The internet has transformed the lives of billions.

It has empowered brands to go global and, together with mobile, it has revolutionised marketing.

But for all its might, digital can’t compete with the face-to-face meeting of minds.

Being able to look someone in the eye, trying on a pair of shoes in a shop or inhaling the aroma of a street vendor’s spicy cooking is much more enriching than looking at a photo, watching a video or reading a blog.

It’s why Amazon are rolling out bricks and mortar stores and it’s why Beattie, the creative communications group, is continuing to expand its office network across the UK and around the world.

We go where our clients need us because nothing beats boots on the ground.

Today we’re celebrating the launch of our south west office – our ninth UK business hub!
