  • 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.

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.

  • 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.

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.

We truly cherish the relationship and are very proud in associating with TEMBO.

  • 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!
