I would like to thank you for the marketing time you have spent with us. The time with you is always interesting and mind blowing? How come we all stop seeing the obvious with our business? I would have no hesitation in recommending your company to people I meet who wish to take their business forward.
GSA was appointed to offer strategic advice and direction on mission and value statements, defining clear objectives for a major sponsorship partnership for the group. GSA was highly adaptable and focused on the project and quickly grasped the various dimensions of the partnership and the overall business objectives. Their management and interpersonal skills coupled with their enthusiasm for the project made them a valuable partner.
Jonathan. Thank you for this morning’s presentation — one of the best I think.
Thanks for the follow-up, I think it was a really useful day and my team have all come back to say they left the session “buzzing” with ideas! (You can use that as a testimonial from me if you’d like). I think there will be opportunities to repeat the session once we’ve made some progress towards delivery.
We started the session with an loose idea of how we wanted to progress our marketing campaign and what industries we wanted to target. By the end of the meeting Jonathan managed to turn me away from what I thought was the quickest and most direct approach! and also made me see the size of the mountain we had to climb. Sensing me thinking ‘oh-my-god’ he ensured we had the bare bones of practical approach for the climb and also let me know that I was supported along this journey. Jonathan managed to ensure that the ‘fluff’ of marketing was distilled into actionable tasks and offered an approach not just ideas.
As a relatively new venture, Blue Bamboo Consulting called on Jonathan's expertise to help us create a viable marketing strategy. During our meeting it became apparent that Jonathan's input was far more valuable than ably fulfilling this specific brief. GSA was able to help us understand the technical options available (within the marketing piece), educating us as to the best routes to market with our burgeoning proposition; furthermore, we ended up with a template business development plan whereby all Jonathan's insight into sales and marketing could be applied and, importantly, aligned to our particular vision. GSA went the extra mile to help us get what we wanted, sensitively and professionally challenging our expectations & goals. Excellent work - thank you!
We approached Jonathan Silverman to act as a facilitator and to provide strategic input to an Intranet development meeting held in the UK. I have worked with Jonathan previously on a number of marketing forums that required input in planning, facilitation, review of outcomes and strategic recommendations. Jonathan has an extremely broad knowledge of the world of marketing communications and it is this experience that enables him to lead discussion in such an authorative way. Jonathan also has an excellent understanding of global cultural sensitivities which was essential in planning our future global marketing strategies.
I put some (training) into practice the next day and oh boy what results it brings. It gives you the desire to win that man at the other end of the phone. I had a really good conversation with a Manager ......... I identified a problem, solved it and as result was able to send him out products that same day after one call. By just sitting back and listening to him telling me his problems, he sold himself my own products. Great stuff.
