Don't just take our word for it
Within just a few weeks Peak was fully immersed in our business seizing upon the opportunities and challenges facing Blue Cube and devising a communications strategy to address our markets, our clients and our suppliers and drive us towards our business goals. They work with speed and focus, flexing their expertise, industry knowledge and contacts to give us a real advantage over our competition and consistently deliver outstanding results. Our only regret is that we didn't know about Peak sooner.
Gary Haycock-West, Chief Executive Officer
Peak played a pivotal part in the IFB establishing a high profile industry and public profile, to include national and regional television and radio, and print.
That profile, which has become an established brand of its own, has undoubtedly played a fundamental part in the success of the IFB.

Insurance Fraud Bureau (IFB)
Peak creates and manages events that have real impact. Their flexible, end-to-end event management service includes creation of the theme, researching, booking and dressing the venue, arranging the catering as well as managing the invitations and filling the places. They deliver against the brief, always within budget and take away the stresses and risks associated with corporate events. It's a great service.
Mark Bates, Chief Executive Officer
Fantastic coverage yet again! A media relations campaign that is giving return on investment. We’ve already received another new business lead directly related to the article and just 24 hours after publication. The expertise behind Peak’s PR campaigns is clear to see.
Andrew Thompson, International Development and Data Director
In a one day workshop incorporating representatives from all areas of the business, Peak drove and facilitated break through clarity on Choice Quote's strategic positioning.
As a team we generated a strap line and company messages which will cut through marketplace noise to give the brand a credible and consistent personality supporting customer, business partner and prospect preferentiality.
An outstanding day's work.
Cathie Bruce, Managing Director
Peak is alive to our needs as a business, identifying and developing solutions which actively support us in achieving our goals. This highly proactive approach combined with in-depth market knowledge provides us with unique propositions for our customers that continue to provide consistently exceptional results.
Lynn Harris ACII, Head of Customer Proposition
Peak was brought in to generate an award entry involving both Detica NetReveal and RSA, several different departments and working to a very tight deadline. Despite having no previous involvement with the project in question, Peak was able to quickly get up to speed with the industry issues, organisational challenges and bespoke solutions that needed to be included in the response and present this in a clear and concise format. What could have been an onerous task was completed professionally and articulately and as a result, the submission has been shortlisted for an industry award. We were very impressed with the way that Peak operated throughout the whole initiative.
Lynne Morrice, Head of Marketing
Peaks results speak for themselves - the very day our first article was published in a motor trade publication we received a call from an interested prospect. The system works.
Oliver Watts, Schemes Account Executive Lucas Fettes & Partners
Peak assimilated information from multiple sources and swiftly brought clarity and focus to the project management and drafting of an awards submission on behalf of RSA. They turned the whole thing round painlessly and within tight timescales and produced an entry which all parties involved in the initiative felt was a powerful representation of achievements.
John Beadle, Counter Fraud Manager
Knowledge, planning and execution are only a few points to consider when choosing the right agency, however all are pointless without a relationship underpinned by total trust and a commitment to deliver – That's why I chose Peak.

Peak's ability to identify and respond to our business needs with a mix of strategic thinking, proactive creativity and robust implementation means that any PR and marketing programmes consistently deliver outstanding results. Peak recently undertook a customer audit on our behalf which gave us an in depth understanding of our customer base, supplied us with testimonial quotes and highlighted specific organic growth opportunities. I am firmly of the opinion that Peak's expertise, focus and attention to detail is what made this such a successful exercise. Peak is an invaluable addition to the Azara Logic team.
Amanda Sokell, Managing Director

Gary Haycock-West – Managing Director
Peak facilitated a positioning and messaging workshop for Blackfoot that gave us real clarity around our business proposition and how to articulate the added value we deliver. We are now armed with messages that cut through the noise in our marketplace and are already having a positive impact on the way we sell our brand promise and live up to it.
James Walker, Director
As engineers and innovators running a dynamic business, time for marketing was always limited. The acquisition of an established business meant we had to review our company image and literature. We hired Peak to refresh our brand and create messages and marketing material to help us ring fence existing business and break into a new sector. The process was enlightening and the results outstanding. We were so pleased with the impact we have also completely overhauled our website, using Peak’s advice to reflect a consistent look and feel for the business.
Geoff Elbrow, Managing Director
FDI European Ltd
Cunningham Lindsey was looking for a partner that could really get under the skin of our business to build a bespoke and dynamic business development initiative that would equip our teams with the knowledge and confidence to meet increasingly challenging targets. The programme that Peak created for us has empowered key staff to take a fresh and confident approach to identifying new opportunities with current customers as well as managing the new business pipeline to win new accounts. The training was professional, energising and delivered with impact. I would thoroughly recommend Peak to anyone looking for a personalised approach to business development training that genuinely engages with participants – both individually and at a team level – to realise bottom line benefits.

AXA Commercial wanted to ensure that it’s local training initiative on building customer advocacy delivered genuine bottom line value for the Broker directors attending . Peak exceeded the brief by developing and delivering a workshop that provided our brokers with valuable insights through a practical step-by-step workbook approach. This ensured that the Broker directors in ‘real time’ developed the basis of a multi-channel communications strategy to engage with customers and prospects to defend and grow their business. It was both highly interactive and thought provoking and has received high praise from delegates, who found it to be ‘inspiring’, ‘an eye opener’ and ‘a great opportunity to work on the business, not in it’. We are delighted that the workshop is having such a positive impact.

Peak understands the communications opportunities and challenges associated with not for profit, membership based organisations. They make available budget work to maximum effect by building targeted campaigns which deliver measureable results. The ABI has benefited from expert strategic advice and high energy tactical delivery of communications programmes. We wanted to differentiate ourselves from other member organisations in the sector, build our profile and attract members. Peak gave us a loud, clear and credible voice, representative of professional investigators, set against the highly dynamic and challenging backdrop of the Leveson Inquiry – I highly recommend them

Peak provided PR and stakeholder communications support to RTA Portal Co Ltd (as it was then called) from the initial launch of the RTA Portal in 2010 until 2013. During the launch period the Peak team went beyond the call of duty with the volume and scope of work they delivered. This involved undertaking extraordinary roles, including a short term help desk facility for the registration of users to support the delivery of the Portal in challenging timescales. Peak have continued to work with the company’s internal communications function to manage the reputation and profile of the company, providing support for updates to users and engaging with the media. I am grateful to Peak, particularly for their strategic guidance and pro-activity during the launch stage, and for the subsequent energy and commitment to delivery which the team exhibited.

As part of helping us really understand how our customers see our business, we worked with Annie & her team at Peak Marketing to carry out a detailed & targeted programme of customer research. With their in depth knowledge of our industry, Peak Marketing really challenged our thinking around the questions we asked, the way we segmented our customers, the information we needed to know both now & in the future about our customers’ needs & challenges, & how we got under the surface of how customers saw each part of our proposition, good or bad. By taking the time to really understand what we wanted to achieve with this research, our aims as a business, & our customer proposition, & then pushing our thinking on what we wanted to achieve out of the programme, we ended up with a high quality piece of research that gave us an invaluable insight into: Where we were now, Where we needed to change, What our customers real priorities were. The challenges they faced now & in the future that we could turn into real opportunities Within 4 months, we have already turned this knowledge into business opportunity, commercial advantage, & a better customer experience, so the investment has been invaluable, & it's been enjoyable working with like minded people along the way. I would have no hesitation in recommending Peak Marketing to any business".
Derek Findlayson, Commercial Director
