Headquartered in Dubai, WPM has partnered with blue chip clients, international organizations and public institutions across the globe.


We embrace a nuanced and in-depth approach to develop compelling narratives that initiate action and engagement.


The scope of data, is decided by each individual project according to your objectives and goals. We use both primary and secondary data, including designing and implementing surveys.
All of the data used and cited is verified and checked for accuracy.



To develop a compelling narrative, we support white papers with contextual research that puts data in perspective within a particular framework. 

All research is cited and verified.



Using both contextual research and data, we develop insights that provide focus, perspective, and perspicacity.  
Our balanced approach creates confidence, transparency, and authenticity.
