Quiet Storm celebrates 30th year!

Open day and tour leaves guests on another planet

“I had no idea how much the world would change, when I first set out in business. It’s amazing to think the most powerful tools in marketing were adverts in trade magazines and the Yellow Pages™.
“Our open day featured a tour of our studio and facilities, with a nod to the past but very much focused on the future. One of the new areas we are venturing into is Virtual Reality. Through investing in Digital Influence, a business which delivers e-learning and sales solutions using cutting edge technology, Quiet Storm now have the capability to deliver even greater value to its customers. With almost a 100 guests, between 1.30pm and 7.30pm, it was a great opportunity to thank our clients for their part in our success.”

Stephen Megson
Managing Director of Quiet Storm

 

“We’ve only just started to work with Quiet Storm and we were amazed to discover the breadth and depth of their services. We now have solutions on our doorstep which previously we’d had to work with London based suppliers to get.” 
 

James Wilson
Managing Director, Davidsons Homes

 

“I’ve worked with Steve and his team for over 25 years, Quiet Storm have helped me increase sales with five companies, two of which I’ve sold. The reason I keep coming back is simple - they make sure they understand the brief, then provide a solution which delivers.”

Carl Barton
Managing Director, Secure Retail


Canapés by two times Michelin star chef

Adam Simmonds has earnt a reputation for sophisticated food and sumptuous presentation. So who better to provide the celebratory nibbles!

“As a client of Quiet Storm’s, I have experienced first hand the quality of their work and service. The team here are currently working on my new website which is focused on promoting my consultancy business. It will also present the business plan and relevant investment opportunities for my new concept restaurant, in Soho.
When Steve called me to ask if I’d provide canapés for the start of Quiet Storm’s 30th year in business, I was only too pleased to help.  The team here have been great to me and it was a fantastic way for me to show my appreciation. The open day had a real buzz and it was great to meet with such a wide variety of people.”

A journey which started 30 years ago as a freelance graphic designer...

 

One of the first projects Steve worked on was the launch of Spanish wines into the UK so it was only fitting that Freixenet Cava was one of the drinks on offer.

On July 4th 1986 Steve stopped freelancing and started what would become Quiet Storm.


“It’s great to see so many people here, we’ve worked with Quiet Storm since 2001 when they first moved to this building. They have been a really reliable partner in both the good times and the more challenging. Whether advising informally or providing a service we need, you get a consistently enthusiastic and well thought through response.”

Many took up the offer to have a professional portrait taken

It was a great way to showcase Quiet Storm’s Print Room - which doubles up as a photographic and video studio.

“It’s been a real pleasure to celebrate with everyone at Quiet Storm on this great day. I’ve worked with them for getting on for 20 years and the way they think things through always challenges my brief. I think this is the real secret to their success.”

“The open day was a great way to see all that Quiet Storm have to offer. We’ve just placed an order for the Storming® Growth Programme and working with a new company is always a risk. However, given what I have seen and the people I have spoken with, I’m really confident we’ve picked the right company.”
James Baxter

“The open day was a lesson in organising an event to engage and educate your clients - really well done and I’m sure I’ll be putting some of the ideas learnt into practice next time we have a client event.”

“I’ve been actively looking for a marketing company for the past 12 months, and of all the companies I’ve come across, Quiet Storm stood out as being the most proactive and results focused.

The Storming® Growth Programme process has identified key areas to engage more effectively and shout about our many strengths. What’s more it’s got my team fired up and brimming with confidence.”
