What people say about us
Richard helped GJE define its many areas of expertise, allowing us to focus on those technologies and inventions that add real commercial value to our clients. His expertise, energy and drive brought forward several initiatives, which mean we market our know-how more effectively; and our growth over the last eighteen months pays testament to this. We particularly appreciated his support for our Partners and attorneys in growing their own business development and marketing knowledge.”
John Wade, Practice Director, Gill Jennings & Every
"Richard Ayres, Director of Galvanise, brings proven methodologies, processes and planning to both marketing and business development, key ingredients for success.
Richard offered Vendigital a fresh perspective. We knew that we needed a marketing plan, which he focused on market segmentation, the potential target population, 'ideal client’ characteristics to aid filtering and prioritising and the creation of sales hoppers. He also urged us to acquire a deeper understanding of our clients and prospective clients in order to improve our effectiveness in driving a productive agenda.
Richard also explored with us our corporate messaging, helping us to establish a clear value proposition and points of view on issues and trends affecting our contacts in key sectors within the market place.
From a practical standpoint, Richard is very flexible, approachable and unassuming. He is open and honest. He helped us to realise that the next step in the organisation’s evolution should be an investment in a full time marketing resource to drive much needed programmes and alleviate pressure from the management team."
