We create compelling and powerful messages that bring about change in perception, understanding and behaviour for our clients and their key audiences.


We work with SMEs and major international brands that strive to weave sustainability into their business model. We advise on sustainable strategic communications and on creating communications platforms that allow companies to communicate on corporate responsibility and respond to environmental and humanitarian issues specific to their community and region. Helping our clients look forward to ensure their long term success, we deliver proactive communications strategies that meet the expectations and concerns of their stakeholders.

Our sustainability services include risk impact assessments, stakeholder mapping, strategy and message development, GRI report writing, editing and design, and employee engagement. We deliver our consultancy services across a broad range of industries for entities public and private.  We hold a PRCA CMS quality assurance certification, which audits Instinctif Partners across nine key areas: leadership and communication; business planning; business improvement; financial management and systems; campaign management; client satisfaction; new business; people management; and diversity. 

We employ over 430 people in 22 offices across 13 countries.  Our Dubai office advises clients across the UAE, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Kuwait, Bahrain, Oman and Iraq. Team members have worked with clients in the Palestinian Territories, Syria, Egypt and Lebanon.  Our team is composed of senior international and Arab consultants with strong track records as communications professionals in the region.

Our local knowledge on the region and our global expertise allows us to respond to concerns both humanitarian and environmental through our client work.  We understand that as communicators our responsibility is to ingrain messages that evoke positive change in the community in which we operate.
