Testimonials

  • TEMBO has supplied some great people for us over the last year. The people they provide not only integrate themselves as a key part of the team to deliver a campaign, they also provide valuable creative and strategic thinking. TEMBO is always my first phone call if I'm in need of cover.
    Phil Boas
    Marketing Director - Events, Infopro
  • It has been great working with the TEMBO team. Their flexibility and can do attitude was exactly what we needed to bridge the gap for our marketing needs. I’d thoroughly recommend them, especially to any supplier for the events industry who needs some short to long term marketing support.
    Laura Tythcott
    Whitespace XPO
  • TEMBO has been the perfect solution for us. We needed maternity leave cover and Kate and her team have worked within our financial constraints to provide a layered approach to the project meaning we have the right skill and expertise at the right time. It's flexible, innovative and responsive to our business needs.
    Ben Cordle
    Marketing Director, New Scientist
  • TEMBO are always my first port of call as they offer a unique service for the events industry. Having someone to call on that can provide clued-up marketers who can hit the ground running is an innovative and valuable resource. Add in Kate's strategic expertise, training and support in the background and it's easy to see why TEMBO has provided the majority of my freelance and temporary marketing resource requirements this year.
    Duncan Reid
    Event Director, Clarion
  • We had a short-term gap in our team and asked Tembo to step in. I was impressed with their knowledge, structured approach and the speed of response. Tembo will be first on my list the next time I am in need of a marketing agency.
    Tracy Bebbington
    Event Director, Clarion

    Ali Reynolds

  • TEMBO IMPACT were brought in to assist with our campaign and were professional and easy to work with throughout. The event content was complex, but they adapted quickly and effectively to all challenges that were thrown their way. I look forward to working with the TEMBO team again in the near future.
    Reece Fung
    Marketing Manager, GovNet
  • TEMBO IMPACT were hired because of their expert knowledge of the events industry. They have created and implemented a social media campaign process for six of our events and after a successful run we are now pushing TEMBO across the company as the social media team for FCBI conferences and exhibitions.
    Mike Setters
    Head of Operations (& Energy Division), FCBI/Thomson Reuters
  • TEMBO IMPACT took on H&S North very last minute but managed to deliver an audience equal with the previous year. We were impressed at how quickly they picked it up, their skills and expertise. Therefore, we contracted TEMBO for our flagship H&S event. They're knocking it out of the park, and we're tracking 70% ahead of last year in pre-reg.
    David Bishop
    Event Director, Western Business Exhibitions, part of Nineteen Group
  • We've always enjoyed a strategic relationship with TEMBO IMPACT. They are truly a strategic partner in every sense and fulfil the role perfectly with expert advice coming from deep industry experience and up-to-date market knowledge. Service responsiveness and sincerity have always been top class and more importantly provided us with the most needed push to promote our values more aggressively... We truly cherish the relationship and are very proud in associating with TEMBO.
    Kaushik Sen
    Managing Director, Coconnex
  • “TEMBO has taken all the stress out of finding excellent freelancers to produce our events. The freelancers they provide are extremely professional and go above and beyond to deliver quality products. Couldn’t recommend them enough".
    Kim Palfrey
    Deputy Head of Production, Arena International
  • Thanks again for your help. It's been SUCH a breeze working with you! Between you and I, I've also been working with our HR team to recruit for other permanent positions and the level of candidates they've rounded up for me just do not compare to the candidates you've put forth so really pleased to be working with you!
    Economist Events
  • Tembo quickly onboarded into our small team to help deliver our ambitious Q1 2021 online events programme. They provided efficient and effective support - in terms of comms planning and implementing key aspects of event campaigns (comms packs, graphics, social posts, in-event support). They're efficient with account management aspects, always keeping us up-to-date on time/costs allocation via weekly meetings and updates, so we could plan ahead and manage costs. Not sure how we used to manage without them!
