"Altitude worked closely with us to create a coherent story about our products and then they put together a campaign for us to tell that story nationally to key decision-makers in the NHS. They also almost single-handedly wrote, edited and proofed the copy for our new website, as well as oversaw its design and relaunch. They were very good value for money and we hugely enjoyed working and socialising with them at their many 'Joy' events.
Patrick Eraut, MD, Complan Foods
Altitude is our go-to agency when we have complex policy issues to articulate, submissions to Government and Parliament to draft and executives to prepare for hearings. They have helped us in a wide range of areas, from alcohol policy to excise duty, and opinion polling to political positioning. They work fast, often to challenging deadlines, and have never let us down. From doing a one-off piece of work for us in early 2008, they are now our automatic choice when we want external support on complex issues. They have become an extension of our public affairs team.
Rachael Robertson, Head of Government Affairs, Diageo
Altitude came to us through a referral, when we were considering a major new green technology venture in Central Europe. We have worked together since early 2009 and they have delivered exactly the political support and intelligence we needed to navigate through Hungary's national and local government, getting us to the right people at the right time, as well as helping us to develop our messages and to present them in the best way possible.
Josh Cooper, CEO, Econetrix
Altitude provided strategic and day-to-day support and advice during Gatwick's transition under its new owners. I have greatly valued the depth of experience in aviation policy, public affairs and communications that they contributed. Their can-do, no-nonsense approach really helped me and the communications team during the important early weeks of Gatwick's transition.
Stewart Wingate, CEO, Gatwick Airport
Altitude supported us during our successful bid to buy Gatwick Airport, providing advice on public affairs and policy, as well as directly handling our bid-related national and international media. We found them to be professional in executing their remit, confident in challenging views, astute at public policy and to have an engaging and informal style that we liked.
Michael McGhee, Partner, Global Infrastructure Partners
Altitude's public affairs and media advice and support to the National Federation of Cypriots in the UK have been a significant boost to our efforts to raise and sustain our organisation's profile as well as awareness of the Cyprus problem among influencers in Westminster and Whitehall. The Federation's communication with policymakers and stakeholders and its media reach have been extended considerably.
Altitude's directors have applied their knowledge of the issues and their political experience and acumen to assist me in shaping and articulating our messages to the right people in our campaign to bring justice to Cyprus.
Peter Droussiotis, President, National Federation of Cypriots in the UK
We asked Altitude to work through the mass of information we have on our business and pull together a suite of concise, well-written and user-friendly briefs on the key issues and policies of concern to our wide range of stakeholders. They mastered the issues in no time and we have been delighted with their judgement as well as the speed, accuracy and quality of their written work. They have also provided sound advice on policy and policy planning and we look forward to working with them again in the future.
Duncan Bonfield, Director of External Communications, Network Rail
Altitude really got it from the first time we spoke. We needed to raise the UK profile of our campaign for workers' rights and to get serious news coverage. They wrote a brilliant campaign booklet to an impossible deadline and at its launch they secured us a clean sweep of the UK broadsheets. Three weeks later they did it again and got us on the front of the FT.
Despite the time difference, they're always there for us, whether it's a midnight conference call, an event on a wet morning in Glasgow, and even weekends and holidays. We've extended Altitude's contract time after time, because they always deliver what we've asked for and they combine their professionalism with a fantastic collective sense of humour.
