"Up until recently my experience of UKAuthority was just consuming their newsletter and news updates, but the Microsoft SME support programme enabled me to participate in one of the UKA Live debates and put across the SME point of view. A debate I enjoyed alongside my fellow participants Mark and Josh ably controlled and steered by Helen. Chatting to Helen afterwards highlighted her depth and experience of public sector and the breadth of contacts UKAuthority had, we went on to use them to promote the Local Social Fund product we were launching using their contacts database to great success."Paul Tomlinson, Managing Director, IEG4
"Learning Pool has participated in several productions with UKAuthority. We have found these debates to be really beneficial in improving our profile with our target market. Our experience is that UKAuthority is well respected across local and central government and as such participating in their productions has given us a reach into new parts of the sector has been really useful. Helen and the team are also great to work with and the quality of the other panellists has been very high."Paul McElvaney, Managing Director, LearningPool
"As part of its strategy to reach out and engage with senior decision makers in the public sector, Capita's software business was seeking to develop a partnership programme with a key influencing body in the marketplace. From the beginning, the approach proposed by Helen and UKauthorITy stood out head and shoulders above the crowd. They have been absolutely committed to the objectives of our programme while offering invaluable independent insight and support. And the results have been superb. They have helped us engage with more high level decision makers across the public sector, supporting our business strategy to develop into new market and product areas. I would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone."Matthew Stammers, Marketing Director, Capita Software Services
