What others say about us

I know Gesine and Philip from my time at Amnesty International, when they were responsible for some of the most innovative communications campaigns in the whole Amnesty movement.  I consider them key allies to my own hopes of building a strong cohort of narrative leaders in Europe, and can see them becoming really important and influential figures in the European progressive scene.

Thomas Coombes

Gesine and Philip from one step beyond have taken us a big step forward on our journey towards Doctors Without Borders' integrated communications across departments.
