The Network (powered by iMedia)

About us

We are an alliance of independent consultants with expertise across sport and entertainment. We work with clients in a different way; giving direct, focused access to highly endorsed, trusted specialists. Whilst independent, we have a strong shared business support, making us efficient for the client, and able to focus on what we do best.

The Network is a part of an evolved offer from iMedia. The Network model is designed to create easy access to our industry’s best talent without the bureaucracy and chains of command of the larger agencies, and the ability to give breadth of quality smaller agencies can’t afford. Clients have complete confidence The Network can deliver national and international projects through iMedia’s account management team’s 20 year track record.
