WHY JOIN US?

We’re a social creative agency led by Laura Tannenbaum and three David’s: David Schneider, David Levin and David Beresford. Together, we’ve assembled the best near on 100 people in the business and are still growing.

In 2018 we were acquired by PR powerhouse, Weber Shandwick, an agency that excel at creating engaging campaigns fuelled by world-class audience research, strategy and data. The acquisition not only gives us access to a ton of industry expertise and specialist knowledge but also the IPG Network, which includes highly accredited agencies such as McCann, FCB and MullenLowe to name a few.

We pride ourselves on our innovative approach to social which gains cut-through and significantly increased engagement for our clients. Whether it’s leading E4 to become the biggest broadcaster on Facebook, executing an award-winning campaign for HSBC or creating content for some of the UK’s best-known festivals, That Lot have been behind countless successful accounts and campaigns. Our client list includes brands and broadcasters such as Amazon, Twitter, Disney, HSBC UK, McCain, BBC Radio 1, Paddy Power, Big Bus Tours, Rimmel and many others.
