”I can’t speak highly enough of Chris and the Axiom team and how they support us. I work with those I trust, and Axiom always leave a great impression. Axiom is brilliant at events, facilitation and tech support but is so much more than that. Their people have valuable engagement, communication and development experience, and the training or the collateral they provide can help any organisation.Nichola NewtonHead of Transformation, BAM UK & Ireland
”There’s no doubt you miss that ‘live buzz’ but that’s the compromise when hosting an online event. Making our inaugural Global Challenges Summit virtual worked out exceptionally well though. We attracted world leading speakers, broadened our audience to have global reach, saved on travel costs and, therefore, significantly reduced our Summit’s environmental impact.Chris MarshallHead of Policy and Strategy, Swansea University
”This was my first time organising a virtual conference and there are definitely benefits to holding events online. One of the key ones is how much less time you need in someone’s day. We attracted high level speakers and attendees from the public and private sectors. Had it been a traditional event, I’m convinced some of those key players wouldn’t have been able to attend.Helen McKayCampaigns and Marketing Manager, Thames Estuary Growth Board
”If you are organising a virtual event my advice is to get in someone like Axiom who know what they’re doing. I’ve organised lots of in-person events but there are important differences. You need someone who knows the tech, but you also want someone who can coach your speakers to success, keep things running to time and make your content engaging for a remote audience.Helen McKayCampaigns and Marketing Manager, Thames Estuary Growth Board
”Chris and his Axiom colleagues have amazing energy and a wealth of ideas for making an event even better. Chris was always proactive, upbeat, and enthusiastic. Without doubt, I’d work with Axiom again.Helen McKayCampaigns and Marketing Manager, Thames Estuary Growth Board
”Truly successful companies have a higher level of Emotional Intelligence, more so I think than academic or business intelligence because it’s about how people work together. If you are looking to create a high performing team, I’d thoroughly recommend Axiom and this programme. The passion and knowledge that Axiom brings is fantastic. Even when you aren’t in the same room as Chris and Miles, they have this tremendous ability to communicate their enthusiasm and expertise, they are highly engaging, and I think that’s testament to their work.Craig ArmstrongPresident, Scan-Pac
”This virtual event, and our partnership with Axiom, served ViaCon exceptionally well. Axiom provided a great medium for running our conference. The interactive possibilities for involving participants, and for so many to share their views in a crisp way, were better than had we held this event face-to-face. Given where we were with our strategic implementation, the clear communication, both at and after our event was very effective. It led to high engagement levels – strengthening morale and providing clear focus on our future direction.Stefan NordströmCEO, ViaCon Group
”I continue to be impressed by Axiom’s consistent professionalism, I’ve partnered with the Axiom team for over a decade; indeed, this is the third organisation I’ve invited Axiom to partner me in. I do so because they help make the complex simple and super easy for us to deliver as clients. This time we co-created a virtual event together, at very short notice. Axiom helped shape the agenda, coach the speakers, design the interactivity, provide the platform and facilitate for us, so we could all focus on what we do best, in this case articulate and drive up engagement with our strategy. If you are looking to host an event either online or off, and want a partner that will bring expertise, energy, and enthusiasm then give Axiom a try – they won’t disappoint.Mattias HakerödChief Human Resources Officer, ViaCon Group
”I joined ViaCon amid the coronavirus pandemic when it was difficult to meet people face-to-face. But it was a big year for ViaCon and we had to rally everyone around our new strategy – we couldn’t wait until we could meet in person to do that. It’s difficult when you are new to a business and can’t meet your colleagues in the traditional way. This virtual event positively surprised me. Its interactivity meant I started getting to know my new colleagues, both professionally and personally, in a facilitated way. I also presented critical aspects of ViaCon’s new strategy, so I’m also grateful to our partners at Axiom for the time and energy they invested not only with me, but with all our speakers, to ensure our presentations and performances were the best they could be. Thank you.Helena WennerströmChief Financial Officer, ViaCon Group
”With high level speakers and everyone Teams-fatigued, we needed to be sharp and dynamic in delivery of our virtual conference. Axiom were brilliant, first class. Do something with them, you'll love them.Kate Willard OBEChair of the Thames Estuary Growth Board and the Thames Estuary Envoy
”From the outset Axiom understood what we wanted to achieve, were enthusiastic about this project, and offered a lot of support. Chris was involved from day one. I couldn’t have asked for a better collaborator – he was just spot on and amazing to work with. He had great ideas, coached us through sessions, was generous with his time and gave us an incredible number of tips for how to make our event a big success. The outcome was so good, and Axiom deserves at least half the glory for that. Their quote was also competitive, so it really wasn’t a difficult decision for us to go with Axiom in the end. It was wonderful to work with Axiom, they are a great company, and I would work with them again anytime.Anna EinarsdottirPrinciple Investigator, LGBT+ Networks and Senior Lecturer, University of York
”Axiom worked collaboratively with us, playing to our respective strengths, to help shape and deliver our leadership events, often at relatively short notice. I'm really pleased with the contribution they have made to the effectiveness of these one-day sessions. I can report a visible increase in the confidence of our leadership community in communicating change, which has helped lay the foundations for our ongoing success as an organisation.Clare BarlowChief HR Officer, National Nuclear Laboratory
”Axiom supported easyJet brilliantly with our annual event for our top 250 managers. They devised the concept and executed the delivery of an engaging, interactive and inspiring event which helped our managers understand and develop their narrative skills and improved their understanding of our strategy. Axiom was easy to work with, responsive to our needs, creative in their approach and professional on the day.Paul MooreCommunications director, easyJet
”Axiom has helped the company in understanding the meaning of employee engagement and therefore we are now much better equipped to motivate our people to execute the business strategy and deliver on our priorities. Axiom has challenged us to go further than I thought possible in a very short space of time.Rocco RomanelliHead of Generali UK Branch
”Our goal is to create a culture at AstraZeneca where quality is integrated into all we do. That’s quite a task and begins with engaging every member of our own team to act as advocates for our messages. We partnered with Axiom to interview our staff and co-create a set of clear, consistent and compelling messages. That gave us a ‘manifesto’ that would be the foundation for successful communication. To bring the manifesto to life, Axiom helped us design and deliver a face-to-face kick-off event.
I am amazed by the huge difference Lorna, Chris and the Axiom team have made. They worked wonders to support us every step of the way and ensure the event was the absolute best and most powerful we could ask for. We now feel full of energy, equipped with the right tools and eager to get moving. Without Axiom’s professional support, the outcomes would have been very different, I am sure. Our journey has just begun, but I am more confident than ever that we will achieve our goal.Lena VågbergVP Quality Assurance, Science Units, AstraZeneca
”I have worked closely with Chris and Lorna during a major internal strategy communication project. I am very proud of the work we did with Axiom to co-create a Big Picture communication campaign. The process and ways of working were very different to what we had been used to in the organisation and I and my team very much enjoyed this fresh and creative approach to strategic communications. We were thoroughly engaged with the project and its outcomes and that engagement proved to be quite contagious.
I would absolutely recommend this innovative project approach to every organisation who wants to forward a complex strategy message in a simple and straightforward style.Dr. Matthias P. DUNKELVice President, Business Unit Head at DePuy Synthes, Johnson & Johnson
”I have worked with Chris and his team since 1996 and come back to them for the insights, advice and services they provide to this day. During this remarkably longstanding business relationship Axiom has helped me deliver a number of highly successful, often award winning, communication campaigns which deliver tangible results. I look forward more of the same in the future.Janie StarkEmployee Engagement & Communications Lead, WEX Europe Services
”As part of the High Potential Programme at Würth, we worked closely with Axiom to shape an approach to improving Employee Engagement among our 64,000 colleagues globally. Our collaborations with Axiom culminated in a highly innovative presentation using storytelling, video, audio, sound effects and even the sense of smell to excite and inspire senior leaders to co-create a great way forward.Manfred DorfmannBusiness Unit Manager Dynamics AX, Würth Phoenix S.r.l.
”Mention ‘strategy’, and people’s eyes usually glaze over. We worked with Axiom on a Big Picture – a learning map that really engaged our people around the issues we are facing, the changes we need to make and the strategic direction we need to take. This visual aid, which had resonance for a global audience, has stuck in people’s minds far longer than any words could. It was a great tool for our leaders to use with their teams to roll out the messages and the action plan, and to provide an appetite to make change happen.
Axiom also worked with us to create and deliver a series of one-day workshops in several global locations to equip line managers with practical tips and techniques on how to communicate effectively with their teams. The feedback was exceptional and we have seen a real difference in the way managers operate.Lisa BlockleyDirector of Communications, Research and Development, AstraZeneca
”Our people really liked this hugely innovative approach to explaining our strategy. It helped us overcome both language and cultural barriers and now everyone is talking about the strategy, at all levels of the business and all around the world, including a tremendous number of people who would not usually engage.Mattias HakerödGlobal HR Director, Surgical division, Mölnlycke Health Care AB
”Axiom helped us initiate a fresh, bottom-up approach to communication. Involving frontline employees in the creative work made a huge difference. Overall, we are delighted with the impact made by the Big Picture and the supporting communications. What’s more, the Axiom team helped make the whole process enjoyable.Miranda LuxfordInternal Communications Manager, First Capital Connect
”Axiom brought their experience, expertise and enthusiasm to help us rise to our employee engagement challenges – from strategic intent through to concrete actions in our betting shops. Their ‘can do’ attitude can be summed up by three words close to our hearts at Coral: Bring it On!Richard LangChief Operating Officer, Coral
”The Big Picture helps us ensure everyone around the world knows what we are trying to achieve as a business and how they can contribute. In more than 25 years in senior management, Axiom are the most creative and professional communication and engagement advisors I’ve ever come across.Andreas JoehleCEO, HARTMANN Group
”I’ve really appreciated Axiom’s holistic approach to helping HARTMANN communicate change messages more effectively. They helped us shape some innovative techniques to communicate our messages, launch them and keep them alive. A number of our colleagues around the world were trained as Big Picture ‘super users’ to help us own and deliver the messages with skill and infectious enthusiasm. Finally Axiom helped us measure the effectiveness of recently started communications to date. Our partnership with Axiom was really inspiring and the results have exceeded my expectations!Gabriele MüllerHead of Global HR, HARTMANN Group
”It was remarkable to see how much quality work was delivered in such a short space of time, by a small group of people drawn from all over the world working collaboratively without ever once meeting face to face.Michael LeistenschneiderHead of Global HR, HARTMANN Deutschland
”The Big Picture has inspired a common understanding of the need for change and has helped lay the foundations for a significantly accelerated pace of change on a key strategic project.Dr. Hendrik RosenboomProcess Excellence Management, HARTMANN Group
”Working with Axiom was great. I really appreciated the attention to detail, the commitment to understanding our business not just our event, and the early engagement, which helped us to design a highly interactive event.
Axiom exceeded my expectations by becoming an integral part of our conference team. Chris pushed our boundaries, brought ideas to the conference we would never have thought of, and encouraged us to challenge what we were trying to achieve and how. As a result, we developed not only an outstanding national conference but an integrated communications strategy.
We sought to create a highly participative event which our employees would engage with. Months later, people are still talking about the event. Chris’s facilitation kept the event on schedule, to the right pace and created a fantastic atmosphere. I really look forward to being able to work with Axiom again.Beth CarruthersRemploy
”Axiom is rich – in ideas, in creativity and in enthusiasm. They are also superb team players who work seamlessly with their clients to deliver an excellent service which gets results. Axiom’s range of expertise is such that we’ve used them for a number of years, whether that’s on a strategic level to develop and embed our communications strategy right through to using their hands-on support to deliver our plan and make things happen. Their ability and flexibility have been key ingredients of our successful relationship.Jennifer FeltonHead of Communications, United Utilities
”We knew we had appointed some talented people, but we couldn’t have predicted just how much they would develop as individuals and as a team during the induction week. They benefited greatly from Axiom’s deep knowledge and responded well to the lively, engaging style. Every one of the 15 Angels scored the induction week five out of five on their feedback form and the good vibes have continued long after the event. I’m now more confident than ever that the Angels will deliver in their new roles.Helen HayesEmployee Engagement Business Partner, Virgin Media
”I’m delighted with how Axiom partnered with our business. We now have a bespoke, digital, sales process to truly meet the needs of our business and techniques to bring it to life, every step of the way. Axiom’s expertise in sales management, design and engagement shone through at every stage. I can’t wait to reap the benefits of all this work as we enter this new decade.Managing DirectorClient confidential
”I’ve really enjoyed the approach Axiom brought to this project. Their engagement expertise and communications creativity shone through and complemented our deep subject matter expertise. I’m delighted to say that as a direct result of the engagement campaign, we’ve seen a significant lift in the numbers of people expressing an interest in making the tool part of their everyday ways of working.Project DirectorLeading Pharmaceutical Company
”I really enjoy working with Axiom and greatly value their advice and expertise on a wide range of engagement topics, especially virtual meetings and events. Their highly flexible approach has stood us in good stead, particularly in these turbulent times. They have enabled us to play to, and develop, our strengths, knowing that we are in safe hands as they play to theirs.Project LeadClient confidential
