Medialab Consulting is a global consultancy advising boards on mergers, acquisitions and corporate strategy. 

From its headquarters in London the company specialises in the sale or purchase of communications agencies. Recently the company has become involved in AI learning technology with a number of innovative start-ups.


Medialab has affiliate offices in Chicago and Singapore

Colin Kemp, Chairman, has over 25 years of experience in the communications industry both as an agency principal and client. He has managed European and US agency groups and has a network of International contacts, and more recently has been deeply involved in the development of AI in the language learning sector.

Clients value this deep sector knowledge, experience and International reach together with the personal touch of dealing with the principal. Medialab always seek to provide substantive support and analytical preparation to find the right solution.


The key to a successful management consultancy involved in M&A is finding the “right fit” either in the purchase of or the disposal of an agency.

Medialab understands and knows the market place, its approach is to analyse the opportunity and target potential purchasers or buyers selectively. The company does not use database mailings, it always makes use of the personal and thought out approach.

Medialab has worked for most of the major global communications groups as well as corporate finance houses, VC’s and PE.

The company is also involved in the development of global sports sponsorship especially in Esports.


Our clients include:

Publicis Groupe
Grant Thornton
M&C Saatchi Group
Omnicom Group
Arrowpoint Advisory


The key to Medialab’s continuing success is understanding exactly what the client wants. It could be a strategic alliance, a trade sale, a merger, a joint purchase or even an external investor.

Once we have agreed the brief and understand the objective and time-scale with our clients one of the Client Service Directors, under the direct supervision of the principal, will mastermind the process until completion.

We work on a retainer, success fee only, or a combination of both – whatever suits you the client.
