We back your bid with an early marketing programme to build your brand and enhance credibility amongst decision-makers.  

What people have to say

    “Copper immediately grasped the importance of our heritage strategy and showed a high level of understanding of our business. They delivered a first-class, innovative campaign which turned potential objection and negativity into support and positive engagement. Copper’s excellent approach meant local people benefited from getting together to capture their memories.”

    “The Copper team has brought experience of many major projects to the table to help us deliver the stakeholder engagement, communications and public consultation strategies and plans for the A303 Stonehenge scheme. They have delivered with energy, enthusiasm and expertise, producing research, content and ideas, often at short notice and always with a creative flair. They have become an invaluable part of our team.”

    “Working with Copper has been a pleasure – they went above and beyond with their support, advice and guidance. Our tight deadlines were met every time, no query was too small and the help and advice given when dealing with a few difficult stakeholders was invaluable. I would, and have happily recommended them within our company and will personally be using Copper again in the future. Thank you for helping us get a complex scheme clearly explained to a large audience.”

    Gemma Webb

    Project Manager

    “Copper has played a significant role in communicating the journey of West Midlands Interchange… Along the way, Copper brought perspective and expertise to the project team that was both strategic and practical: understanding that success was contingent upon intelligent communication and advocacy as much as compliant consultation.

    “As a trusted advisor, Copper continues to demonstrate an integrity and commitment to ensuring communication of the project stays true to the team’s values as it is brought to market and moves towards construction: whether it is through direct engagement with residents and local communities, via the media or with national stakeholders.”

    “I can’t recommend Copper creative team highly enough. Their design work has been invaluable in taking our businesses content to the next level, and we have been delighted with the high levels of engagement received. Copper’s work is always delivered promptly and to a high standard, and their enthusiasm and gift for turning concepts into reality make them a pleasure to work with.”
