Bolts from the blue

In the BlueChip team you’ll find all the things you’d expect from a world class financial services communication firm … like a net promoter score of 81%. Okay that’s almost unbelievably high. It clearly didn’t happen by doing the same things, the same way, as others in our space do. So what do we do differently? As a client or colleague we’ll tell you what you need to hear (we call this the kind truth), not just what you want to hear. We’re incredibly democratic and we play to our strengths. We don’t carry passengers. Those values are reflected here, where we share insights gained from working with the world’s best financial services brands on their communication. Please join the conversation.
