What. A. Year. Scratch that, what a decade! At Deloitte Digital, we’re over here still pinching ourselves as we reflect on all we accomplished during 2019. And we couldn’t have done it without, you guessed it, a little help from our friends at Heat. So, without further ado, here’s Deloitte Digital and Heat’s 2019 year in review.

Remind me again, what’s the story with Heat?

Back in 2016 when we joined forces with Heat, we knew we were onto somethin’ special. By combining Deloitte’s deep industry knowledge and versatile technology experience with the incredible creativity of the full-service—and award-winning—advertising agency Heat, we created the world's first creative digital consultancy.

Almost four years later, it’s been a wild, wonderful ride and we’re only getting started.

So, let’s start with Deloitte Digital’s favorite subject, our humans!

By now you’ve likely heard of Maggie Gross, Lindsay Wade, and Nada Khan—with good reason. They have been all over the place, discussing Heat’s proprietary diversity ad score test, the Heat Test in publications including Ad Age and Campaign, as well as at major industry events like Advertising Week New York, The 3% Conference, The Forbes CMO Summit, and more.

We’re not the only ones giving Maggie and Lindsay kudos, either. Back in November, Maggie was honored with a Women of Influence Award by The New York Business Journal. Lindsay Wade also garnered recognition and was named as one of Business Insider’s Rising Stars of Madison Avenue. We’re so proud they are ours!

We may need a bigger trophy case

With such an amazing team, it’s no surprise that Heat’s campaigns racked up some nice, shiny accolades as well:

As Heat and Deloitte Digital embark on a new decade, we’re excited to continue making magic while solving our clients’ business needs with breakthrough insights, best-in-class strategy, and world-class creative. See what else Deloitte Digital was up to in 2019.
