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

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.

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.

BE works with some remarkable clients, and we bring their brands to life in remarkable ways. Every live event brief we take is subject to the same meticulous planning and execution. No stone is left unturned – the little details matter as much as the big ones. It’s this approach that has helped us create enduring partnerships with our clients over many years. Here are stories from some of them.
It has long been an axiom of mine that the little things are infinitely the most important. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
“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

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:
