Impact partnerships

Communicate

Our client strategists coordinate and optimise our capabilities to enable clients to drive progress. Digital strategists, innovators and product specialists create compelling formats to communicate and share research, editorial and custom content with global audiences. Expert storytellers, data designers, digital producers and creative visionaries elevate messages, ensuring stories are infused with market-appropriate meaning. They work alongside a dedicated audio visual team, client branded editors and social media marketers to maximise reach and impact.

Research and business analysis

Clarify

We have a collaborative culture, full of discussion and debate, with compelling opportunities to learn and develop. Our researchers and analysts work across six countries and 200 markets to bring clients intelligence that moves them forward. We have one of the largest teams of this kind in the world. The data, forecasting and in-depth insights we develop enable governments and businesses to make vital economic and public policy decisions, manage risk and lead the global discussion on important issues.

Our country and regional experts gather and analyse information on politics, the environment, technology, business and key industrial sectors to develop a holistic picture of each geographical area. Being part of a community of people of all ages and many nationalities, all deeply curious about the country they are reporting on is highly stimulating.

“There’s a highly cosmopolitan and intellectually engaging atmosphere. I regularly work with teams across the Americas, Europe and Asia. I have the privilege of working on some of the most important issues facing the world, including the coronavirus pandemic.”

Global events

Activate

We bring intelligent debate to life with close-knit teams in operations, sales, marketing and content. Covering topics from sustainability, global treasury or the future of work, the areas we explore are as varied as our global locations. Every year, we design and curate more than 100 events held in 30 countries, partnering with corporations, foundations, NGOs and governments to explore important themes from technological change to circular economies.

We bring leaders together and partner with innovative companies to affect change. Whether you're creating a large-scale event for 12,000 globally influential attendees, or a small customised webinar designed to enable a client to target a specific audience, you can join an agile, energetic team with the chance to innovate, learn and develop.

“Since joining, I have had the opportunity to work with many teams around the world on global events, while still having a strong focus on our local market here in Dubai. TEG actively encourages a work/life balance, allowing me the flexibility to be a working mum and still providing me the opportunities for further growth and development.”
