We just love it when a prospective client contacts the Sowerby agency after popping a few key words into Google. And that’s exactly how the Telford Homes’ Learning & Development team found The Sowerby Group.
Telford Homes, with offices in London and Waltham Cross, Hertfordshire were looking for a full service agency with an in-house design studio and experience within the fields of Human Resources, Recruitment, Property and Construction who could handle all their internal communications projects – from HR initiatives including Employee Engagement and Policies & Procedures through to Learning & Development training materials, and more. This was a client we were really excited about.
When we arranged our first face-to-face meeting with the Telford Homes’ team, they were very clear about what they wanted from their new supplier – and we knew we would be part of a 4-way pitch against three other agencies. The chemistry also had to be right from the outset. We have to say it felt ‘right’. Our design team set to by producing some amazing ideas which the client loved – so much so that they immediately acknowledged the designs could run independently as well as complement the overall Telford Homes’ brand. And then it was a waiting game… Only a week, but it felt like two!
When we discovered that The Sowerby Group was the chosen agency who understood the Leadership Team’s vision, we were ecstatic! We really wanted this contract and we worked together to make sure that we came up with something special to blow them away!
What a wonderful win for team Sowerby. This communications business is full of surprises. When we are approached by a prospective client you can never be sure of the final outcome despite investing in numerous hours of team collaboration, research, design, copywriting, proposal design and lots more. After all, there are no second chances to go back and correct the documents after they have left the agency. Suffice to say, we have a great future ahead of us as we partner the Telford Homes’ team to help achieve their own vision. We indeed look forward to building a strong future together.
