C8 Newsletter – June 2024

June 30, 2024By C8 ConsultingInsights

Jam-packed with industry news and insight, welcome to the latest edition of our C8 newsletter! It is great that summer has finally arrived accompanied by an amazing sporting calendar with The Euros, Wimbledon, the Tour de France, and of course the Paris 2024 Olympic Games.

It has been a very busy few months for C8, and we are excited to share what has been happening with you.

Celebrating 20 years of C8 Consulting!

From our last newsletter, you may recall that 2024 is a special year for C8 as it marks our 20th anniversary. This is such an incredible achievement for our fantastic Managing Director, Paula Elliott, who founded C8 in 2004 and has led the way for the past two decades.

However, it wouldn’t be a birthday without a party, and to mark this very special occasion we held a big celebration on the 16th of May at the Soho Hotel in London. This was an excellent event that brought together over 70 of our colleagues, clients, and friends from the industry, including a panel of speakers who provided insight into each of our four themes for the year, which are:

  • Inspiring leadership
  • Stepping into the unknown
  • Expansion and growth
  • Giving back

Thank you so much to everyone who attended, the night was truly special and put into perspective the incredible network we have built over the last 20 years.

Research Bureau and Design Studio launch

Our C8 20th Birthday celebration was not just a fun party, it also marked the launch of two new offerings we are incredibly proud to announce – the C8 Research Bureau and C8 Design Studio.

Firstly, the C8 Research Bureau will help you shape the narrative and drive debate with bespoke research that cuts through conjecture to deliver real-world insight. Explore opinions, identify trends, and increase understanding of your customers and market. We have a fantastic track record of managing research campaigns for our clients, so if you are looking for a piece of original content and proprietary stats, then do get in touch.



Additionally, the C8 Design Studio will enable you to bring your campaigns to life with dynamic, engaging design that elevates your messages and resonates with your target audience. From authoritative long-form reports to striking social assets, we can create collateral that gives your organisation the flair you need to stand out from the crowd.

What’s on the horizon?

Looking towards the second half of the year, we are conducting and releasing industry-leading research projects from several of our clients, including the 2024 editions of the Forter Consumer Trust Premium report, ThreatQuotient’s State of Cybersecurity Automation Adoption report, and the Noname API Security Disconnect. Plus, there’s a host of other activities in the pipeline!
