  • What do we do?

    We offer strategic advice and insight to help our clients think through their challenges, to support their decision making and help their organisations thrive. Our services include commercial strategy consultancy, trends and cultural insights, qualitative and quantitative market research, data science – and UXR.

    This ability to blend different disciplines (each with highly skilled, specialist practitioners) makes MTM different from other strategy houses, or other research agencies.  We view our clients’ issues through many lenses (commercial, cultural, human) and understand them more completely as a result.

    Who are the clients?

    We focus on media, technology, advertising, and entertainment (sport, gaming, arts).

    We are proud of our client list.  It spans some of the world’s biggest firms (e.g. Google, Amazon, Facebook), some of the most adored brands (e.g. Spotify, Pinterest, Disney, HBO, the Premier League, PokerStars), and the most prestigious legacy brands that the UK market has to offer (e.g. the BBC, Channel 4, Sky, BT, The Football Association, Global Radio, Ofcom, Arts Council England).

    Why you’d like the work?

    We’re privileged to work on some of the most fast-moving and exciting issues in the world today, supporting clients with challenges of global import – yet relatable topics.  There’s always a new question to answer, no two projects are the same, and the work is fascinating.

    We’re thoughtful about our work, and we’re passionate about what we do.  That enthusiasm generates warm and friendly relationships with clients and other partners. And MTMers come to really know their stuff.

    We strive for a really high quality standard and will help you to be the best you can be. Don’t just take our word for it – we have been recognised for our excellence by the industry and across the media sector. A selection of recent awards and accreditations include;

    Who are we?

    Around 50+ curious minds, all with a real drive for getting to a good answer. Not always the easiest answer for our clients to hear, but the answer that will help them move forward.

    We’re a young firm. Our interests range from Gossip Girl to the beegees, from Santan Dave to UKTV Dave, Anna Karenina to Anna Kendrick, Birdman or the Vulture … yes, we’re media mad and have every corner of modern entertainment culture covered.

    We work on a hybrid basis. People come to our offices three or more days a week – to connect with each other for more creative meetings and deeper conversations, or simply to have fun. We have socials, book club, team lunches, quizzes, awards, charity events and good old fashioned coffee breaks, so that people can get to know each other when not in the office every day.

    If all of this sounds exciting, we’d love to hear from you…
