WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
With ambitious plans for growth, it’s essential that Sova builds a high performing marketing team. In working with STM, 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.
Claire Rahmatallah, Director of Marketing, Sova Assessment
The team at STM 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 business owner and share first-hand our experience of working with STM and I would go so far to say it’s been our most rewarding outsourced experience to date.
Fraser Silvey, Managing Director, Connor
We have been working with STM for just over a year now, and they have been invaluable in setting up our social media platforms and have helped us to create a professional, content driven and up to date online presence, as well as producing high quality, extremely well written blog content for us. They are a fantastic team to work with, keen to understand our business, are happy to take on board feedback and produce great content which is always approached with enthusiasm and delivered on time. Miad Healthcare would definitely recommend STM and they are a joy to work with.
Libby Ryan, Managing Director, Miad Healthcare
I highly recommend STM and Michael Gegg to any business looking for a rebrand or marketing materials. As the director and founder of KP&A, I was looking for a company that could really understand my business USP, mission and customer base and create logos, branding materials and a website that sold this clearly and compellingly. From the start of the design process until delivery of the project, Michael and his team worked tirelessly to understand and interpret what we were looking for and to procedure high quality, commercially-sharp and easy to use products in a time savvy fashion. Michael goes over and above – attending to every detail at each stage of the project to ensure that the customer gets what they are looking for. For my business, the partnership worked brilliantly! Thank you Michael!
Katherine Powell, Director, KP&A
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 STM 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.
David Wall, CEO, UnaTerra
STM 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 STM 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 STM any day of the week.
Fred Gulliford, Marketing Manager, Qlearsite
STM 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
It’s been a pleasure to work with Michael and his talented team at STM. 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
STM 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 STM and their trusted partners. The team offers a very personal service making STM feel a close part of the Tap’d team.
Anthony Ryland, Managing Director, Tap’d Solutions
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 STM can offer your business.
Dave Millner, HR Curator
STM have provided a professional level of service for us, and have helped us establish a robust Twitter and Linkedin social media presence to engage with wider audiences. Their knowledge of how the platforms work has enabled us to maximise our marketing opportunities.
Nigel Dias, Founder & Chair, The HR Analytics ThinkTank
I have been working with the team at STM for the last year where they have been building my marketing and communications strategy. The team are very creative, agile and knowledgeable in the professional services space and are not afraid to challenge convention. Their experience in the market place is extremely robust and they have a broad network of connections which have enhanced my business over the last year. Working with Michael and his team is a true partnership with their team from day 1 feeling as if they are an extension of my brand which I really value as a small business. I really like working with Michael and his team and can not recommend them highly enough!
Jo Taylor, Managing Director, Let’s Talk Talent
We have worked with STM since the beginning of 2017. They have understood our needs and have been excellent at supporting us with the development and delivery of our go to market plan in the UK. I think what stands STM apart is their expertise in professional services and the enthusiasm they bring to their work. It feel likes a true partnership and they are a trusted part of our team.
Sean Mills, Executive Director, Ipsos LEAD – a division of Ipsos MORI
We engaged STM for assistance with a content project in our UK market. With tight deadlines they went above and beyond to not only meet the deadlines set, but were able to deliver additional content we put their way. We are delighted with the service received and we will be engaging them for further marketing services in the coming year. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending STM for a wide range of creative support – clients will receive a first-class service.
Carmen Malatino, Senior Director of Sales Operations and Corporate Marketing, PRO Unlimited
Michael and his team have helped Bloojam name and brand our new Acuity® assessment product for strategic salespeople. Michael has also supported us by providing a marketing plan for launching the product. We have been impressed by the quality of the service overall and we are delighted with the branding and creative work. They have understood our needs as a business, supported by their wealth of experience of working in the psychometrics and management consulting industry. They have been able to provide expert advice that really supports our aims.
Sarah Clapperton, Business Psychologist, Bloojam Consulting
Working with STM has been an absolute pleasure. They combine a professional, knowledgeable approach with down to earth pragmatism and are genuine, nice people to work with. We used them for the set up and marketing launch of The Engaged Culture Company, where they designed the logo, website and PowerPoint templates to get us started. Not only that, they had a wealth of knowledge, hints and tips around social media campaigns which helped us enormously in the early stages. I would thoroughly recommend STM to anyone with similar business needs.
Sam Dawson, Founder & Director, The Engaged Culture Company
I can’t say enough good things about our experience working with STM. We are undergoing a global expansion and have targeted new markets to promote our product. In particular we were targeting France to promote our product to coincide with new legislation that was enacted that would require companies to seek out companies like ours for assistance. Our challenges were twofold – 1) a communication barrier due to language differences and 2) how to effectively communicate with the audience through mediums that would be the most successful in that market. Michael was instrumental in helping us on both fronts. He assisted us not only in helping develop the right strategy but connecting us with resources to ensure our message was translated effectively. Our program was a success in no small part due to the assistance we received from STM Group. Thanks so much for all your help!
Anush Alexander, Vice President of Marketing, Steele Compliance Solutions, Inc
STM has worked closely with our business from day one – helping us to define our approach to market, which channels to use and our specific marketing activities. They have then taken these forward, always ensuring that we get as much done as possible within limited resources. Michael is a great marketeer, a fantastic team player and incredibly good at getting things done. His expertise, knowledge and insight make him an asset to any professional services firm.
Phil Kenmore, Managing Director, SmartSpace Learning
We’ve been working with STM for approximately 6 months. Initially we were hesitant about the value they could add, having heard stories about other providers. On meeting Michael, I realised that he was a person driven by a passion to make a difference. This was the reason I went into business, and to meet someone who shared the same passion was hugely important. Michael has within 6 months, completely changed how we market ourselves, how we engage with social media and has developed a robust strategy for the year ahead. Michael has a huge amount of experience that he draws upon. He knows what to do and how to do it, and that’s when you realise you are dealing with an expert in the field of marketing. He is completely trusted to control our marketing budget, due to his ability to make marketing work for us. Michael’s approach builds trust and confidence very quickly and he delivers on everything he commits to. Michael is an essential part of our team and we wouldn’t go anywhere else for our marketing support. He has been absolutely brilliant, and it is a real pleasure working with him.
Amrit Sandhar, Director, The Engagement Coach
I recently engaged the team at STM to develop our Digital Marketing Strategy. From day one I have been impressed by their ability to really understand our market, generate great content and connect us to our prospects and customers. The team bring a really “hands-on” approach that delivers immediate results. I would highly recommend them to any organisation who are looking to get more from their marketing and bring themselves into the Digital Age.
Gareth Brown, Director, Red Admiral Learning
Mytelco had been talking about refreshing its website for some time. The team at STM Group came in with a very competitive quote and a concept that suited our needs. Communication was easy, despite us being based in Adelaide, South Australia. We Skyped and emailed regularly, STM took our ideas and turned them in to reality. Whilst there were tweaks along the way no change was too big or small. Mytelco have no hesitation in recommending STM and plan to continue to work with the team for many years to come.
Julie Brown, Administration Officer, Mytelco Pty Ltd
An excellent social media session for our team at Dilys Jones Associates Ltd; many thanks! Answered all our questions and helped to develop our strategy.
