We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then,
is not an act, but a habit. Aristotle

Thinking

“There really isn’t a digital replacement for shaking someone’s hand or reading their body language and all the other benefits of human interaction. It’s all about building relationships”
B2B Marketing Benchmark Report

We believe in the power of touching the brand and the business value of the creative idea. Every brand needs to connect with its’ audience and live out its’ brand promise. This is just as true for B2B. And it’s why we place so much emphasis on being evocative and delivering the remarkable. We believe in employing remarkable people too. People who are uniquely experienced and can add real value for clients. People clients see as integral to their team – not just another supplier.

The way that we create the remarkable demands careful planning and execution. Our way of working and behaviours are intrinsic to BE. They are part of who we are and influence everything we do, from how we partner with you to how we engage with each other.


You need to let the little things that would ordinarily bore you suddenly thrill you. Andy Warhol

It has long been an axiom of mine that the little things are infinitely the most important. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

One Team

What do you value most about working with BE?

“I would say the people & ‘go beyond’ attitude everyone you work with has. You all really feel as much a part of our team as anyone who actually works for our company.”John, client for 6 years

By ‘one team’ we mean you and us. We’re not here to talk forever about ourselves, it’s about you. But we know you’ll want to know a little bit about us, otherwise how can you know if we’re the right fit for you?

We’re proud to be seen by our clients as part of their team, not suppliers. Clients tell us that it’s down to our people, approach and principles, as well as what we actually deliver. We bring advice; knowledge and best practice; as well as an open mind to every project. And we bring the right people into your business, people like:

Jennifer

Jennifer

Jenni is widely regarded as a world expert on B2B event strategy and business events management; she has implemented projects on every continent. She also loves books and has her own mini library, which she remarkably still finds time to both colour co-ordinate and alphabetise.

    Gary

    Gary

    After building the largest B2B and technology advertising agency in Europe, Gary moved clientside and has spent 25 years in senior global B2B brand management and communications roles. But when he grows up he really wants to be a world famous photographer. If anyone can, Gary can!

        Kate

        Kate

        Kate’s many years working in the PR industry, both agency and client side, have clearly helped make her a remarkable individual. She decided to get fit running around the block – she now fits everything around her marathon schedules. A sub 4:30 time is the next goal.

          Natalie

          Natalie

          Is a former Disney character, but she can never tell you which one. What she can tell you is everything you could ever need to know about event planning and exhibition management. Natalie has also worked client side at the BBC and other high-profile organisations.

            Rebecca

            Rebecca

              Hanane is always somewhere in the world, on-stage and on-camera, presenting, hosting and crowd gathering at one of our events. With her warmth, humour, and enough energy to rival Zebedee, she's invaluable to our onsite show team.

                Jacqui

                Jacqui

                From delegate lists to data management to production deadlines. If it has a spreadsheet, Jacqui loves making it add up. She also applies that same fanatical attention to detail to her garden, her baking, and to making a very decent cup of tea.

                   


                  Say hello

                  There's nothing remarkable about it. All one has to do is to hit the right keys at the right time and the instrument plays itself. Johann Sebastian Bach
