Next 15 Group plc
Great things happen when
we work together
We are growth consultants
The world has changed in so many ways since our last Annual Report and the need for sustainable growth is even more vital.
Like our clients, we’re on our own journey and this is reflected in our new name: Next 15 Group plc. In dropping the word ‘Communications’, we’re not turning our back on the origins of Next 15 but embracing the fact that we are now a much broader-based Group with insight, management consultancy and sales enablement capabilities at our core.
This year’s report describes the considerable progress that we have made on many fronts, and what we have planned for the future.
Key numbers for 2023
“How would it be an orchestra if all were French horns?”
We believe in the power of deep, best‑in‑class specialists working together to solve clients’ growth challenges.

We invest not only in our deep specialists but also in the connections between our brands. This allows us to win together when clients have complex, multidisciplinary needs.
