Introduction

Help us shape the future

Madano is committed to building a better world through intelligent and creative communications. We work with clients who are taking on major challenges of our time through innovation and creative thinking – helping them tell their story, make the right connections, change attitudes and influence behaviours.

Our people are highly motivated and engaged, always encouraged to make their voices heard and given the opportunity to progress. And while we deal with challenging issues, we make sure we don’t take ourselves too seriously along the way. Questioning accepted wisdom, always looking for alternative solutions, ours is a purpose-driven culture where everyone pulls together to make a lasting difference.

We have resolved to work only with organisations whose values align with our own. And we employ people who demonstrate a genuine commitment to delivering positive change.

Madano’s Energy Practice

Madano has a dedicated Energy Practice with communications specialists who are fascinated by the sector and committed to overcoming client challenges at a time of profound change. We work with clients solving nuclear fusion, using blockchain and AI to disrupt energy markets and the development of zero subsidy renewables to name just a few. We are helping shape the future of energy in the UK.

The practice has a successful track record identifying and delivering funding and investment for clients through carefully designed Government Relations programmes; devising and launching high profile thought leadership campaigns and reports; building coalitions of advocates across government, industry and media through the team’s in-depth knowledge of the sector; as well as creating compelling creative content and written content for clients. We are trusted advisors that share our clients’ ambitions to make energy cleaner, fairer, more efficient and more secure.
