PhoneBox Group


One Day in London...

A creative expert, a marketing guru and a clever strategist walked into a pub, talking about how hard it was to find a firm that combined global insights and wide-ranging expertise with strong return on investment. It wasn’t the first time they’d talked about this challenge.

So, Michelle Calcagni created that firm.

But it Needed a Name

Think about your favorite work memory, a time when you worked with talented people to create amazing solutions while having tremendous fun – do you have a photo of it? We do. Lots of them – take a look!



We deliver value to our clients by helping them achieve their goals

We love a challenge and know there are no “one size fits all” solutions

We’re happiest when we share the problem-solving journey with our clients

We believe effective collaboration is fueled by fun

We know diverse people and ideas underpin a better world

We commit 10% of our time/resources to making the world better for others

We don’t work with jerks (yes, we really mean that).
