As a result of the coaching sessions, I had the courage and confidence to leave my job and start my own business

Alex was an excellent coach and helped me take a big step. As a result of the coaching sessions, I had the courage and confidence to leave my job and start my own business which was the best decision. Working with Alex helped me take things step by step and look at the alternatives of not taking action. She certainly enabled me to make a significant and positive change in my life.

A trusted, collaborative and very well organised partner

The ARC team have provided the Council with a variety of high quality marketing services. As a trusted, collaborative and very well organised partner, they have delivered many improvements across our printed, digital and social media marketing suite.

From a completely refreshed website, to new brochures and events collateral. The most recent key development has been the vast increase in our social media profile, which has clearly been driven by the focus of a dedicated and skilled ARC Agency resource in this area.

They project managed the campaign superbly and expertly

For five years running, Alex and the team played a critical role in the delivery of the UK campaign for Global Entrepreneurship Week, helping us reach hundreds of thousands of people as part of the biggest enterprise campaign in the world.

They project managed the campaign superbly, expertly overseeing different parts from outreach to hundreds of partners, to the running of the flagship launch event. I came to rely heavily on Alex and the team, knowing that whatever the piece of work, it would be delivered on budget and on time. Using their extensive contacts in the UK enterprise sector was key to the success of the campaign in the early years and helped YBI to forge new partnerships very quickly. The highly skilled team worked directly with our sponsors at Barclays, as well as senior civil servants at the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills.

What is great about working with Alex is that she is focused and reliable

We worked with The ARC Agency on a couple of different projects. Alex supported partnership relationships so that operational staff could concentrate on getting the maximum benefit for young people. What is great about working with Alex is that she is focused, reliable and doesn’t seem to be phased by the inevitable challenges that come when you are trying to break new ground. Alex is adept at building relationships at both a strategic and operational level. She is as comfortable with a Strategic Vision as she is with a detailed operational plan. She knows her strengths and when to bring in additional expertise. She thinks on her feet and I’ve seen her handle difficult meetings with a calm authority. Perhaps the best illustration of the high regard we have for Alex is the fact that we have chosen to work with her again and I’d certainly be happy to recommend her to others.

The training was well structured, clear and informative

Alex led one of our training sessions on Digital Marketing at the Petit Miracle Hub, a charitable business incubator supporting entrepreneurs from disadvantaged backgrounds. She helped attendees of the session understand the intricacies of digital marketing, which many, until her session, found very confusing! The training was well structured, clear and informative. She received a lot of great feedback from the workshop participants with many wishing she would deliver another session in the near future! Many thanks Alex and keep up the good work!
