DrumRoll please

Our story

DrumRoll was born out of the need for a fresh approach to engagement and communication in 2017. Companies and their workforces were crying out for meaningful financial and wellbeing communications to captivate, educate and inspire their people – and so DrumRoll was formed by Barnett Waddingham, a leading independent UK professional services consultancy, and in collaboration with creative agency Studio Blup.

We work with employers, trustees and private clients to change the way they communicate. With a broad range of expertise to draw on we simplify complex messages, strip away the jargon and use creativity to capture the imagination.

Our key strength is in creating communications and campaigns that change peoples’ perception and responses to their savings, rewards and wellbeing – for the better.

What makes us different is the way we work and what we believe in. And we believe true engagement is achieved through the power of emotional connection.

Engagement to a different beat

We cut through the noise with creative communications that not only interact with people, but actively involve them.

We listen

Great communication, it’s different for everyone. We listen to your unique needs to find out what your people want to hear, and tailor our beat to your rhythm.

The beat goes on

Simply put, we don’t believe success has a full stop. We analyse the impact of every campaign and tailor future communication to be as effective and meaningful as possible.

Our ACDC approach is the framework for success

Our mission is simple – to cut through the noise with common sense communication, and give you the engagement results you need in a refreshingly straightforward way.

We know every client is different. Every solution is bespoke. Every project starts by digging deep to understand where you are and where you want to be. In partnership with you, we adapt to your needs, your goals and your budget. From insight and strategy to creative delivery and measurement we deliver impactful communication tailored to you.

We ask you to trust in our tried and tested framework which is the foundation of our work.
