Our offices

Where in the world are we?

Don't be Shy HQ is nestled in the heart of Manchester's creative Northern Quarter. Three compact storeys filled with the UK’s best and brightest in B2B marketing.

London - Not our own base, but that of most our clients. As such, we spend a lot of time in this great city in and out of meetings, events and the odd night on the tiles.

Anywhere - We like to travel and we’ve got passports. National and international B2B marketing is where we’re at home, so we can work wherever you call yours.
