About Us

Back at the turn of the millennium, we were client-side B2B marketing executives struggling to find agencies able to deliver our required level of sponsorship programme support.  We were sure we could do better.  So, we did, and SQN was born.

Our vision was to redefine the agency experience.  To be different.  To stand out from the crowd.  Our goal wasn’t to become the biggest.  It was to be the best in our field and to stay faithful to our values by putting a little piece of ourselves into everything we did.

Now, two decades later, we’re an award-winning marketing communications, content, campaigns and sponsorship agency.  With unique experience in technology, sport and automotive, we have helped countless companies tell their stories, including some of the biggest brands in the world.

And through all of that, we have remained true to our vision.  So, if you need an agency that will take themselves out of the equation and focus only on what’s best for you; a team that will become one with your own; and a commitment to an exceptional level of professionalism, flexibility, service and results, then we should talk.

We may be a small agency, but we are mighty!

We bring together a remarkable portfolio of industry experience, business acumen and creative innovation.  We’ve worked client-side as well as at agencies, so we understand only too well the challenges our customers face every single day.  And we are committed to delivering ground-breaking results in every project we undertake.

Most of all, our team is exactly that – a team.  And not just within SQN, but with our clients too.  Never us and them.  Always one. 

We love the work we do.  We are SQN!
