About Us


Shared Purpose is a research-based communications consultancy with a specialism in best-practice approaches and thought leadership. We deploy a network of best-in-class, straight-talking, curiosity-driven professionals brought together by a passion for meaningful change.

We are experts in helping clients communicate about complex issues and engage internal and external stakeholders effectively – to solve problems and be seen as thought leaders.

What we mean by ‘shared purpose’ is helping clients to take a socially responsible approach to the issues impacting their organization, supporting them to identify and own a social purpose which delivers on a shared mutual interest with key stakeholders and delivering 360o crowdsourcing of data points to co-create an authentic social purpose and approach to issues management.

At Shared Purpose, we take into account culture as a definer of relationships and influence. We build long-term, collaborative relationships with our clients instead of the transactional and impersonal approach so common amongst the big agencies.
