“Waypoint, and in particular Brett Davis, have served XX Artists as trusted confidants. Brett has remained a fierce advocate for the value that XX has built in our people and services, and his work will have a lasting impact on how we will continue to be most effective in delivering our best-in-class social and influencer marketing services in combination with Media.Monks and S4Capital.”
Founder, XX Artists
“The Waypoint team have been instrumental in guiding and facilitating our growth as we expanded regionally across the Middle East. We faced numerous challenges as we moved through covid and grew headcount by over 100, but many were navigated due to their advice and support, resulting in significant growth across our key metrics. We see the Waypoint team as an extension of our leadership group, and would recommend them to any organisation that is looking to navigate the next step in their journey.”
CEO, Create Group

Today marks the start of a new, exciting adventure for our agency. Waypoint has been instrumental in setting us on the path to the next phase of growth.”
