The team at South Thames Marketing earnt the respect of all of the senior people within Connor very, very quickly. Their speed of execution is phenomenal and is something we’ve not experienced before. They have brought real clarity to our marketing, which has meant we are now maximising every pound of our marketing budget. I would happily talk to any small business owner and share first-hand our experience of working with South Thames and I would go so far to say it’s been our most rewarding outsourced experience to date.

Fraser Silvey Managing Director, Connor

I’ve known Michael as a colleague, and more recently as a client of his, for over 15 years. He is the consummate professional in this space with an in depth knowledge and insight into the world of HR through the lens of marketing and knows the importance of connecting business solutions to the people demands of organisations. He has provided me with insights into website design, solution marketing and the importance of an ongoing plan that drives momentum for a brand and/or a particular solution. His business model works and delivers results – I would suggest that you find out more about what Michael and South Thames Marketing can offer your business.

South Thames Marketing have been integral to the success and growth of Tap’d Solutions. This ranges from daily management of our social media to organising and running our calendar of forums and webinars. In addition, Tap’d underwent a brand refresh in 2017 with a whole new message to the HR market – this entire exercise was delivered through South Thames Marketing and their trusted partners. Michael offers a very personal service making South Thames Marketing feel a close part of the Tap’d team.

Anthony Ryland CEO, Tap’d Solutions

It’s been a pleasure to work with Michael and his talented team at South Thames Marketing. I’ve been impressed with their ability to rapidly understand complex briefs, sculpting beautifully crafted yet punchy messages that can be delivered across multiple platforms. I’ve also been really impressed with the creativity and quality of their graphic design; it’s brought our brand and marketing collateral alive. I’d be happy to recommend them to any third party.

Ed Parsloe Chief Executive, the OCM Group

South Thames Marketing has been a great partner for us at Talent Intuition. They manage our social voice and share the content we produce across multiple platforms. Since working with Michael, Phil and the team we have seen excellent growth in our following and importantly our engagement levels. They are a great extension to my team, very responsive and charge very reasonable retainer fees.

Alison Ettridge CEO, Talent Intuition

South Thames have been running our Social Media for over 6 months now and we have seen excellent growth in follower and organic traffic to our site. The relationship has been great, it has required very little management on my side as South Thames very quickly understood our tone of voice and how we want to communicate ourselves. Michael is a true professional, highly entrepreneurial and passionate about his work. I’d recommend working with South Thames Marketing any day of the week.

With ambitious plans for growth, it’s essential that Sova builds a high performing marketing team. In working with South Thames Marketing, I have a strategic partnership which feels more like an inhouse team, who understand my market, are responsive to our needs and bring their creativity, pragmatism and ideas to the table every time. They allow me to focus on my priorities, confident in the knowledge that work is being done professionally, on time and with impact.

Michael has been working with LaunchPad for three years, and he keeps on surprising us how well connected he is within the HR industry. His support over that time has been invaluable whether it be planning strategic marketing activities or rolling up his sleeves and helping with executing the plans. He is always positive and has a real “I will do that” attitude.

Rob Garlick Finance Director, LaunchPad

We recently engaged South Thames Marketing to support us with the development and implementation of our marketing strategy. In the short time we have worked together, they have transformed our social presence, produced some excellent content and extended the size of our network in our international markets. Their team bring a lot of passion and energy and are not afraid to challenge our thinking. I’d absolutely recommend them..
