WHO WE ARE

THE FULL CIRCLE ADVERTISING
Owned and run by Linda Beatty The Full Circle Advertising is the core member of the alliance and provides the strategic and media planning services of the consortium as well as project management for the alliance when the companies work as a team.

She has special insight into the informal sector and social marketing, with special interest in business to business communication.

HOW WE WORK
Each member of the alliance brings individual expertise and takes individual responsibility within a highly flexible working framework. Big committees steal time, hierarchies limit initiative, big infrastructures generate more paperwork and unnecessary third parties are often just someone else to brief. It's the reason why we prefer face-to-face with clients. If we're on your job, we're in the room. It's quicker, smarter and cheaper for everyone.
