Enigma Strategic Communications Ltd

Enigma Strategic Communications (ESC) is at the forefront of ethical influence. In a category beset by the irresponsible use of data, and inappropriate use of psychological / behavioural techniques, Sven Hughes and Olga Kurushina founded ESC to provide strategic communications solutions within a clear moral framework. 

All of ESC’s work is underpinned by these foundational values. Other companies speak of their purpose, ESC was created with one purpose: to set new industry standards.

Within three years, ESC has grown into a significant SME, with clients including Shell, Manchester United, WWE, Newsworks, NATO, O2, Lyma, DMG, JTI and APS Intelligence. 

ESC is determined to provide clients and audiences with the insights, strategies and communications techniques they need to create compelling ethical messaging, and to recognise and refute ‘fake news’ wherever they find it. To that end, ESC is currently developing a new global training package that will enable anyone, anywhere, to learn the means and methods of ethical influence for themselves. 

ESC has been variously described by clients as “the best in the business”, “a true revelation for marketeers” and “the go-to strategic partner for modern business” – and was the proud recipient of a 2023 Great British Entrepreneur Award.
