Sterling reputationBusiness Profile
This business was established in 2006, specialising in extensive project and planning management. Services include: ‘Strategic Direction’ to ensure the delivery of a client’s project is measurable and provides return on investment. ‘Project Management’ itself, builds the correct brief, manages the entire delivery from conception through to delivery, whilst the ‘Account Management’ captures the fine details of the process so a full project status is available at any time upon the clients request.
‘Event Production’ is undertaken in conjunction with the project manager to ease the pressure on the business’ clients. Each client is given a dedicated member of the team to work with either as part of their team ‘in-house’ or as an outside contact with direct availability.
As a means of maintaining the highest quality of content the business spends more time researching and producing each event than its competitors, translating and filtering information for the wider team to prevent double handling and re-work. This style has attracted and maintained ongoing business relationships with many internationally renowned businesses and organisations.
The business has excellent industry relationships and strategic partnerships, which act as an additional sales channel. The business is highly regarded by senior speakers, sponsors and exhibitors. There remains significant scope for growth and additionally this is a low risk business due to being cash positive as clients pay prior to delivery and most projects cover ‘regional’ issues where between twelve and ninety separate follow on events are required, reducing the need for marketing and building on going relationships.
The company believes that in order to produce a great solution you must first understand all facets of the challenge. Making something look good is easy, ensuring that it works, and provides a ‘return on investment’ is much more complicated. The company is aware of this, and works very hard to ensure they do both, which is why their clients return time and time again. This belief is formalised in a unique methodology which addresses all the facets of a clients business; again, this methodology only available with the business ensures repeat custom due to its effectiveness.
The business’ success is based on referrals and repeat business so the company does not need to charge the going agency rates, allowing it to provide a high quality service without alienating SME’s and overseas clients. Costs are transparent and the business does not ‘mark up’ work undertaken by others.
Many ‘A’ list clients’ return to this business for its reputation, professionalism and quality of performance.
Clients include B.T. The Department of Health, O2, Telefonica, The National Health Service and Royal Mail together with leading politicians, decision makers & influencers
