Client testimonials

Here are just some of OCTANE’s recent clients and what they have to say about the agency:

“Once again, a huge thank you to OCTANE PR for a tremendous PR job – I can’t ever remember getting this level of PR coverage in the nationals and it has really taken both the event and the brand to a new level.”

Ken Deeks, founder, Byte Night

I’m very happy that we decided to work with OCTANE PR to support our public relations in the UK market. Their contact with the press was outstanding and made it easy to establish our presence in the UK media within a short period of time. We’re very satisfied with their support and results.”

Robert Bredlau, Director International Business Development

“PlusNet had a reasonable reputation as a broadband provider in niche markets. In under a year OCTANE has helped us build our reputation and awareness considerably through online and national press. Their knowledge of the media and the technology sector has helped us cut through the noise and reach our target customers. Calm in a crisis, thoughtful in tactics and creative in execution, OCTANE PR has produced the right results for PlusNet.”

Neil Armstrong, Products & Marketing Director, PlusNet

“The mix of strategic advice and operational delivery has been instrumental in transforming the perception of BT across the media. OCTANE clearly understands the press and how to make the most of a good story. The team’s crisis management skills are outstanding. Moreover, they provide clear and tangible metrics for every campaign. Every team member is passionate about the work they do and this shows clearly in the results they produce.”

Duncan Ingram, Managing Director Customer Service, BT Retail

“Postini is well known as the leading provider of email security and management solutions in the US, but we had very little brand recognition in Europe when we started working with OCTANE.

The security market is already extremely crowded but the combination of OCTANE’s press expertise and knowledge of which press tactics to use at which time has catapulted us to be a leading voice in the security space.

We’ve already hosted industry forum’s with leading business influencers, launched our products in the UK and actioned structured campaigns that really help achieve our business objectives.

In addition to being enthusiastic and creative, the team also knows how to have fun!”

Marty Tacktill, Senior Director of Worldwide Public Relations, Postini

“I’ve worked with a lot of agencies, big and small, some very good, some very bad from all over the world, and OCTANE is in my view one of the best for providing extremely sound strategic advice and also delivering on this. They are a great team and have worked very well with the local UK marketing manager to develop local plans and campaigns which build upon our global corporate activity which they also roll out locally (product announcements, M&A activity etc). They also show great tactical awareness and great attention to detail, sounds like an obvious requirement but in my experience that’s not always the case.

We work in a quite complex area of finance and technology, and I’ve been incredibly impressed by the way OCTANE team have immersed themselves in the business. We have invested time helping them get under the skin and its paid dividends – they are a great extension to our marketing team and really understand what we do and how to position this with the media. They’ve helped us create some great relationships with target journalists as well.

Finally, and this is key for me, they have never taken their foot off the pedal, they consistently meet the targets, show great initiative and a willingness to succeed.”

James Fisher, Director, Corporate Marketing, Cartesis
