“The world doesn’t need another consultancy. It needs a better one.”
– Tony Langham, Co-founder and Chief Executive of Lansons
At Lansons we want to be famous for the quality of our thinking and our focus on delivering exceptional advice, ideas and results. But we are here to make a difference. To the clients we work for, the people that work here and the community we are part of.
We’re founded by individuals who believe in what we offer down to the core. We take pride in the work we do, and the people we do it for.
We’re driven by building strong working relationships with our clients (and colleagues), and have a proven reputation for delivering on our proposals. Our commitment to our clients requires us to focus on the results we deliver.
We do so while being positive, thoughtful and motivated, and ensuring our communications always feature three things: style, substance and storytelling.
We remain intensely curious about the things we do, the clients we have, and the world at large. By staying well ahead of the trends, we guarantee the success of our clients, and Lansons, well into the future.
Pursuing a ‘giving back’ strategy
This year we have selected mental health charity Mind, who provide advice and support to empower anyone experiencing a mental health problem. Because of Mind, millions more people have access to advice and support thanks to their information and services nationally and locally, in England and Wales. We are looking forward to rolling out a programme of events to not only fundraise for this amazing cause but also to engage the agency and the industry as a whole to challenge stigma and discrimination that surround mental health issues.
This years Christmas appeal focuses on the story of Caitlin who called the Mind Infoline at Christmas last year feeling lost and suicidal – bombarded by images of the perfect Christmas and weighed down by the extra pressure to be happy. She spoke to one of their advisors who talked her through what help she could get and where to go as well as strategies to help her cope including art therapy.
We are proud to support ‘Investment 2020’; a commitment by thirteen of Britain’s leading investment firms to create job opportunities in The City for students and recent graduates regardless of background.
Since 2008, HighTide and Lansons have enjoyed a relationship that is unique between an arts charity and business. We donate office space, IT support, meeting rooms and reception services to enable the charity to reallocate resources towards achieving its charitable aims through the production of more theatre.
2013 Women’s Prize for Fiction
Lansons was proud to be a co supporter of the 2013 Women’s Prize for Fiction. Now in its eighteenth year, the Women’s Prize for Fiction was set up to celebrate excellence, originality and accessibility in writing by women throughout the world. Known from 1996 to 2012 as the Orange Prize for Fiction, it is the UK’s most prestigious annual book award for fiction written by a woman and also provides a range of educational, literacy or research initiatives to support reading and writing.
Lansons supports Allison Bell
Lansons is a proud supporter of Soprano Allison Bell, providing an award of financial assistance to assist with her career development. Allison has established a unique reputation as a performer of “contemporary classical” music, working closely with some of the most important living composers including Peter Eötvös, Brett Dean and Richard Ayres. She has a strong relationship with the London Philharmonic Orchestra and Vladimir Jurowski in championing 20th and 21st century repertoire.
Royal Shakespeare Company
Lansons continues to be a corporate supporter of the Royal Shakespeare Company (RSC). The RSC is one of the world’s best known and most renowned theatre companies and plays regularly in London, Newcastle-upon-Tyne and on tour across the UK and the world, producing bold, ambitious work with living writers, actors and artists and helping people to connect with Shakespeare.
Lansons has a great history of involvement and support of the local community and businesses. Last year Lansons took part in Clerkenwell Design Week for the second year running. Lansons collaborated with Creative Clerkenwell and The Gin Garden. The courtyard at Lansons was transformed into a secret gin garden where we invited those involved to come and discover its surprises.
Last year, Lansons became a supporter and corporate sponsor of Pro Corda – one of Europe’s leading music organisations which operates the International Chamber Music Academy for young musicians. Pro Corda is an educational charity which provides musical training for a wide range of young people through ensemble training and performance specialising in chamber music.
Our business and the environment
At Lansons, we aim to minimise the impact our work has on the environment and we have had a full recycling program in place since early 2002. From the early days we have always worked on the basis of reduce, reuse and recycle and this still forms the basis of our environmental policy today.
