To understand an issue, a market or position requires more that knowing where we are, but the roads that led us here as well as events are taking us. The spreadsheet will only get you so far where humans are involved, sometimes you have to get into the story to get where you want to go.

With experience ranging from banking, tech, advertising, NGOs and foreign affairs – the partners at the 4717 can gather data through research and on-the-ground research and site assessments, and turn that raw information into actionable analysis, reports and practical narratives for advertising, sales and market positioning.
