Testimonials provide an unbiased view as to our ability to exceed expectation. Thank you to those clients who took time out to say some rather nice things about us…
Lady Meyer, CBE – PACT
I am thrilled to have the chance to share my experience and recommend Gary Chesterman and Media CPM.
I first met Gary Chesterman in 2014. We were introduced to each other by a mutual friend. At that time, I was looking for someone who could assist us with a new poster campaign which PACT, the charity I founded in 1999, was developing. Gary immediately agreed to help and do so on a pro-bono basis, which for a small charity like ours was a God send.
I explained in more detail what the campaign was about and what we were trying to achieve. Gary instantly understood and decided to come back with some ideas. Gary returned with a series of powerful designs, which he and his team had developed. Their ideas were brilliant and the posters perfectly portrayed what we were trying to express. I was most impressed.
Since then, we have been working closely together, not only on this campaign but also on other projects. I could not have had a better experience. Gary is someone of deep humanity, great talent, and true professionalism.
Tom Rippon, Communications Assistant – Beanstalk
“We’ve worked with Gary and the team at media:cpm on a regular basis over the last few months, and I can safely say that we have been absolutely delighted with our relationship and the quality of service which we have received. Not only is the customer service from their Account Manager Zoe excellent, but the quality of their design work has been to a high standard and has really benefited our organisation. We really look forward to working closely with them over the coming year and to seeing all the great design ideas they come up with!”
Emma Atkins, CEO – Dame Kelly Holmes Trust
“The Trust has worked with Gary and the team at media:cpm from our early days as a charity. We see media:cpm as not just a supplier but as a valued partner of the Trust. The reason for this is that they don’t just provide great design and print resources but go that extra mile to really get to know our needs, provide us with guidance and expertise as we have grown as an organisation ourselves. We are really proud to be able to include media:cpm in our growing team across the UK and look forward to working with them as we expand our work in the future.”
Julie Harkus, Personal Independence Co-ordinator – Age UK Essex
“The publicity materials were very well received yesterday at the event and went down well in the office too. Thank you – your team has done an excellent job for me. And good timing too!”
Victoria McElhinney, Communications and Marketing Officer
“The Annual Review has arrived and it looks absolutely fantastic. Thank you for all the hard work you’ve put in to create our first document of this kind. Anna and I are both incredibly happy with it!”
Craig Foster – Managing Director
“I just wanted to thank you. Having a print resource that can forecast and raise potential issues before they become real problems and work with you to resolve them is invaluable. Attention to detail and reliability coupled with people that immerse themselves in what you are trying to achieve gives me great piece of mind.”
Ellen Rowles, Marketing Executive – Skills Active
“Thanks so much for the flyers, your team were very quick in getting this sorted for us, Zoe was a star!”
Corinne McGee – Business Coach and Trainer Centre for Innovation and Partnerships, Newham College of Further Education
“Gary has been a regular guest speaker on our business start-up courses. He has a real gift of connecting with the students. The story of how he formed and grew his own business, and overcame the challenges he’s faced, has inspired them greatly”
Hannah Sheedy – Head of Fundraising and Marketing
“The Dame Kelly Holmes Trust has been working with media:cpm since the Trust began in 2008 and we really value the long-term support of Gary and his team. We are extremely proud of the work the agency has produced for us, such as our annual reviews, business plan and event branding and look forward to working with them for many years to come”
Simon Bleasdale, Senior Designer – International, Marsh Ltd
“We asked media:cpm to manage our inventory of portable exhibition media for a number of reasons. Firstly, we wanted our internal clients to have a seamless ability to order stands for their events via our intranet booking system. Secondly, we wanted the inventory to be well managed from a logistics, quality and internal client service point of view. I am pleased to say all our expectations have been met and exceeded with media:cpm in this capacity. They have adopted a proactive and client focussed approach, and we have received nothing but positive feedback since they took this responsibility. They also offer a very high standard of checking the functionality and quality of the systems and artwork, so every client receives the best service possible”
Sarah Morten – Account Manager – Blackbridge Communications
‘We have been working with media:cpm for several years now and have come to view our relationship as a partnership rather than ‘client-supplier’ relationship. This is due to the exceptional level of service we receive from Gary and his team day in, day out. They always reply promptly to emails and phone calls, are great at managing expectations and deadlines and are very helpful at advising creatively on finishes and innovative ways of doing things where the need arises.
To highlight two particular examples where they have shone, they recently handled the printing of a pitch document for a client of ours during which our client consistently missed print deadlines and yet media:cpm managed to pull it out of the bag and delivered the document on time and looking great. Throughout the process they were very professional and our partnership helped to ensure that, despite us being quite demanding (!) the friendliness of service and sense of humour remained throughout the process.
Similarly, we use media:cpm to produce the collateral for our annual client away weekend. This is a key new business
event for us and as such having high-quality printed collateral is paramount. Every year Gary and the team deliver to tight deadlines with good humour and give great advice on ways of making the product that extra bit better.
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone.’
Jim Christopher, Principal, Mercer Ltd
“I’ve been working with Gary Chesterman and his team at media:cpm for around two years now, having been introduced by a colleague in my London office. My main responsibility at Mercer is heading up a technology based team where a significant amount of work is outsourced to specialist print providers on an annual basis.
We work very closely with employee data on these projects, therefore we must be able to trust in the ability of our suppliers to deliver on quality, to time and budget but more importantly, without any errors occurring due to the risk associated with loss of data. I’m pleased to say that Gary and the team have become our preferred provider due to their ability to focus on attention to detail, their proactive approach to project management and their professionalism and respect in the way they work with me and my team. It is most definitely a partnership approach and I’m always confident that media:cpm will do everything they possibly can to ensure my client’s objectives are met. This support is most definitely appreciated, and is one of the key reasons I will typically go to media:cpm first and foremost to obtain an estimation of cost for any new work where we require support with delivery. I would not hesitate to recommend media:cpm to other organisations based on my experiences.”
