Who are we

Founded in 2012 by Kevin Power and Jonathan Oliff, Conversation Lab has always challenged the notions of what a traditional advertising agency looks like. A decade later, spearheaded by MD Uyanda Manana, we’re still pushing the boundaries of where creativity and technology intersect.

Conversation LAB is a performance-driven creative agency founded in 2012. With a strong track record of consistently delivering measurable marketing for blue-chip brands, we create digital-first, insight-led, conversation-prompting solutions by people for people.

We exist for you, the ones brave enough to believe they might change the world, and maybe, with us as a partner, you can.

Working at Conversation Lab

Conversation is a universal currency, regardless of your language, culture or creed. That’s why we’re passionate about curating authentic digital interactions that drive growth for our brands and value for their consumers. We believe in insights before ideas and ideas before platforms.
