“Edelman DXI’s approach to data is unique. We believe data and intelligence should help organizations build trusting relationships with different stakeholders.
Following six consecutive years of double-digit growth, we took the economic downturn and reduced client budgets as an opportunity to focus our strategy last year on “reflecting, refocusing and reenergising”.
Our goal was to grow not in profit, but in how we operate as a business while maintaining our margins to improve our working efficiencies and set us up for ongoing success once the economy and client budgets across the region continue to recover.
Our independence is what gives us the freedom to do this, providing us the opportunity to continue to build capabilities ahead of the curve, helping clients achieve their business objectives and have a positive impact on society.”
