Our news stories from the last quarter

Genesis is proud to keep providing innovating and inspiring campaigns for our clients that create the right impact and deliver on the bottom line.

The start of 2020 has seen the UK leave the EU, the Sussex Royals leave their royal duties, Australia burn with bush fires triggering a massive conversation on greenhouse gases, the US start their 2020 campaign trails and the Coronavirus spark shutdown across China and other countries over fears of a global outbreak.

The world is changing, we are all trying to be more responsible for our actions on the environment and now the national mood is improving over Brexit, there is no better time to sharpen your message for your customers.

Here’s a quick recap of our recent news:
