Media is changing at an extraordinary pace – perhaps faster than any other market sector. Change brings opportunity.

With the explosion in digital content consumption and non-stop M&A activity, the media landscape is barely recognisable from that of the pre-internet age.

The UK’s creative industries and digital technology skills are recognised worldwide and these businesses continue to attract international buyers.

Central to Cavendish’s media expertise is our understanding of a broad range of media sectors. Advertising and marketing, data management, digital technology, publishing, television production, PR, events and conferences, recruitment and sports marketing.

At Cavendish we understand the media and digital space and the convergence with other sectors such as healthcare and technology. This has enabled us to achieve  excellent prices for our clients across a broad range of media and digital businesses.
