Red Thread Connection’s communication and engagement experience has been invaluable. Their insight into the type of challenges we’re facing as an organisation has meant they’ve been able to understand and quickly translate my thoughts, ideas and strategic vision into a sound and practical ‘brand led’ engagement strategy. Working with Red Thread Connection means I’ve also been able to relieve some of the pressure that comes with trying to juggle a raft of day to day business challenges demands while leading the drive for new behaviours across the organisation. With the strategy work progressing safely in Red Thread Connection’s hands, I’ve been able to achieve both.
From Day 1 Red Thread Connection hit the ground running and delivered exactly what we needed – a company who quickly grasped both the business environment and complexities of the programme, created a compelling communication strategy that secured critical operational support and buy-in at a difficult stage and helped us introduce the new ways of working quickly and effectively. They have a no-nonsense, common sense approach that’s invaluable when you’re trying to deliver far reaching change at pace.
Red Thread Connection has helped us see the bigger picture when introducing our global cultural change programme. Not only have they identified a broader range of engagement areas and activities we need to focus on, but, thanks to their open and approachable style, they’ve also helped us collaborate more effectively with our key stakeholders and hard to engage audiences. As a result, we now have more people actively committed and involved with what we’re trying to achieve. From strategy and planning, through to the delivery of innovative and creative campaigns, Red Thread Connection has been invaluable, providing us with a wealth of practical advice, guidance and experience as well as hands on support.
With their vast experience, Red Thread Connection brought a new level of robustness to internal communications, built excellent relationships with key stakeholders and to me personally, were great mentors and coaches. It’s been a few years since I worked with Red Thread Connection, but I still often recall their words and even say them to others myself!
