About us

Headquartered in Bristol, one of the most diverse and creative cities in the country, we’re so much more than just an agency. We’re home to 40 talented people (and growing daily) who love what they do. So we do all we can to give them the rewards they deserve and create an environment that nurtures their brilliance to be the best they can be.

It’s all about the people. We know that and it shows in everything we do from the awe inspiring work we deliver to our socials, training and the environment we’ve created. We’re not an agency with people, we’re a people agency. And a great one at that.

We want to be the agency in your career at which you remember having the most fun, being the most challenged, where you learned, were inspired and in turn were inspirational. A time where you topped your creative game, got your ambitions fulfilled, were braver than you’ve ever been and happiest at work.

Speed Communications is also part of The Mission Marketing Group, host to 13 entrepreneurial, founder led Agencies with 25 offices based across 3 continents, that include integrated, multi-discipline, multi-sector Agencies, specialists in specific marketing/communications activities and specialists in particular market sectors.

We believe that working with us - and for us - should be a brilliant, energising and rewarding experience. So we’ve created a business designed to energise and inspire. To challenge and motivate. To enable our clients and our people to be their best. We focus our energies every day on making a difference. Straight talking, easy to work with and armed with knowledge and insight, we create strategies, campaigns and content designed to drive business success – with none of the fuss. Because for us it’s very simple. If we’re not driving success we’re not doing our job. And we really love our job.
