“"Huge thanks for the support, guidance and wealth of knowledge in assisting us to place business into the wider UK. Could not have secured this win without you, and very much looking forward to identifying how we can continue to work together. You showed us commitment, fantastic comms, and delivered exactly what was briefed, which is hugely refreshing and sincerely respected. Here's to the next project Team Brightelm!"”

“"We worked with Brightelm on a recent virtual event, and Rob did a fantastic job of coaching the speakers, who were unfamiliar with the digital format, and really put them at ease. Tara also did a great job running the tech side of things. Thanks team!"”

“"The support received during the preparation and celebration of the Annual Workshop was both effective and enriching. The staff who ran in the meeting were very competent and, in particular, the manager was able to listen, adapt to our particular needs and propose new ideas. The commitment shown by the company went far beyond what was expected, and the event improved with their contributions. In particular, we have received positive feedback on the sessions devoted to meeting the speakers after their talks. These “Meet the speakers” sessions will probably be kept in all our future events!"”
