‘Working with Barnaby Benson was a complete pleasure from start to finish. They were extremely clear in timescales, delivered on cue and made project management a pleasure. As a result we have been gifted some exceptional copy that really makes our products shine. Spending a lot of time researching our products and target markets meant our brief was matched to the tiniest detail. We will have no hesitations in using this wonderful company again for all of our copywriting needs. Top-class.’

PR Account Director
'We were really impressed with the help Barnaby and Joe provided in helping us to develop a certain tone of voice for our new cruise brochure. From one short meeting Barnaby clearly understood the brief and came back with engaging copy which incorporated the personality of one of the directors. It was a thoroughly interesting read and different from any other travel brochure in the market. The brochure was so well received by our customers that BB is already working on our next edition! Thank you Joe and Barnaby for all your hard work.'
'I recently worked with Barnaby on a high-level professional services conference and the experience was second to none. His understanding of the complex content and his ability to produce material that reflected the very individual voices of the presenters – of which there were many – resulted in an exceptional communication piece that received extremely high ratings from both contributors and participants in post-event feedback. As testament to the skills, knowledge and calming influence that Barnaby brings to a project, we are just about to embark on the next one!'

'On a fast turnaround but highly important assignment Barnaby immediately and accurately understood the brief, then provided me with a range of spot-on solutions. He made a far-from-easy task look, well, easy!'
'What a pleasure to have worked with you and thank you for your good work. Having both been thrown in the deep end, you handled a complicated briefing with ease and fully grasped the message the client was wanting to put across. Your scripts worked very well and you made changes quickly, enabling the animators to make any changes they needed in time to hit their deadlines. You made my job so much easier. I would not hesitate to work with you again on any project - either Corporate or Broadcast - that I can include you in on.'
'Having sought Barnaby's help on a copywriting project that had been difficult to finalise, he quickly grasped the objective and the style that was needed and responded promptly with exactly what I was looking for. I would be pleased to brief Barnaby again in the future and confident that he would deliver exactly on brief.'

I'm looking forward to our next project together.'

Allianz Global Corporate & Specialty
'The quality and speed of your work for us was simply outstanding; the best way I can illustrate this is that my Finance Director, who is somewhat of a humourless cynical individual, described the overview brochure as "the best brochure he has ever read"...if customers think the same we are in great shape.'
A large division of a major bank
'Having worked with Barnaby Benson on a series of projects over the years I have been consistently impressed with the speed at which he gets beneath the surface of the project, understands the client and their brand. He has worked with me on large scale projects for NatWest, Lloyds TSB as well as a series of on-going projects for the London Business School. I frequently recommend him when asked to suggest a highly skilled and professional copywriter.
'Barnaby worked as an integral part of the team responsible for developing the new tone of voice for Lloyds TSB and implementing that across all key brochures. He has also been key in developing on brand copy and headlines that are at once engaging and supportive of the creative direction for NatWest.'
CF Stokes Consultants
'Our brief for Eat at Work was pretty challenging. We needed to explain a technical product that dealt with National Insurance and tax treatment in a simple way. What we got was a great brochure that explained the benefits in an easy to understand way. Barnaby really got his head around what we needed to say and what our audience would think. The result was great feedback from prospects and a successful product launch.'
