We partnered with Challenge Marketing for the first time this year, to try and be more innovative in our outreach to prospects/customers and equip our Inside Sales team with another tool. Challenge were enthusiastic and committed from the day we signed contracts with them. Their training and meticulous approach has aided our reps to not only be comfortable with video marketing, but confident using it as a prospecting tool - some are even now advocates of it within our organisation!

She and her team understood the objective and were spot on with the vision, design and functionality of what will undoubtedly be an integral tool in Juniper's evolution in the events marketing space.

Lucy is a life saver. Hyperbolic, but true. Very rarely when working with an agency do you come across a person whom you cannot imagine doing marketing without. Lucy provides excellent strategic guidance, on spec creative deliverables - oftentimes following an extremely vague brief, and goes that extra mile. I have followed Lucy as she has moved between agencies, and I followed her when she started her own. I recommend her, and Challenge Marketing without hesitation. If you want an extension of your marketing team that you can trust to deliver and do so with a smile, on budget, on brief and on time - Lucy is your person. She is now a friend, & I look forward to working with her for many years to come.

Lucy is one of the most passionate and hardworking people I know. She continuously delivers creative, intelligent work and there never seems to be a project too challenging or difficult for her. She's fun, trustworthy and a joy to work with.
