Our responsibilities

CSR

Building a more sustainable future

As an evolved family firm with a strong business ethos,we are committed to sharing our core values within the community we are based in.

Our business sustainability programme : We are conscious that we live and work in one of the most beautiful parts of the country and in a listed building at the heart of a UNESCO World Heritage Site. We have an active recycling programme, keep energy usage to the minimum and,where possible, purchase goods and services locally. Broadley Speaking was a sponsor of the Oxford Climate Forum.

Supporting the local community: Supporting the local community has always been very important to us. Our team members have been active in local schools supporting them with management and project management skills and supporting English and Business Studies students in learning marketing and sales skills.

We have taken work experience placements from local schools and are actively involved in the governments apprenticeship programme

Supporting local and national charities: On a monthly basis we raise funds for a team nominated charity these have included The Alzheimer’s Society, Oxfam, Help for Heroes,Breast Cancer Awareness, Diabetes UK, Bristol Children s Hospital and Great Ormond Street Hospital.

Each year we try and involve ourselves in one major fundraising event. These have included a fire walk, raising a £1000 for Robert Owen Communities ( ROC) who support adults with learning difficulties; a team commando challenge for CHICKS; abseiling for Macmillan Cancer and supporting local organisations in their fundraising activities.

Promoting flexible working: Since the company’s inception it has promoted and encouraged true flexible working for all team members. Whilst our work is crucial to us all, little is more important than the families and health that sustain us so allowing time to accommodate these is crucial to maintaining a highly focused and motivated team.

“Our white board culture. When we refurbished the office a number of years ago someone came up with the neat idea that instead of using regular wallpaper we should cover the walls with write on / wipe off material, so effectively all available wall space has been turned over to one great big white board. The space is used for writing up team plans, monitoring performance, and listing achievements on a  team by team basis.”


Intelligent Sales

“Collaborative working – no sales person is an island, or they shouldn’t be! The calls have to go out and the spade work has to be done but when you’re working through the implementation of complex sales campaigns sometimes putting your heads together and combining intellectual property gathered on a call by call basis can bring great results. The Broadley Speaking teams get time to think and problem solve. Breaking new contracts, often measured in seven figures, is not easy work.”

“In the “war room”.  Much of work with clients is about collaborative problem solving. Rather than choosing a traditional board room set up – this room is set up to accommodate the whole project team. By that we mean the sales and marketing teams from our clients and the full Broadley Speaking team active on their account. There’s plenty of room to accommodate everyone’s laptops, iPads!”


Intelligent Sales

“Seamless connections with clients – We work with businesses, of all sizes, right across the UK, in  Europe and in North America. We work with them in our office and theirs and use our state of the art video conferencing facilities to keep in touch. This combined with our bespoke built campaign management software provides complete transparency across any campaign or programme of work.”

“Holistic approach to sales – often we work with clients to help them reposition their sales propositions. Acting as ‘critical friend’ we’ll work right back to their core value proposition in order to refocus and provide new impetus to their sales campaign. Similarly we work with clients sales teams and management to provide individually crafted sales coaching and training programmes.”

“Our environment –  we have created a light, modern, ergonomically designed work area to allow for maximum efficiency, comfort and pleasure – yes pleasure! We all spend a good deal of time at work , and do difficult and challenging work on behalf of our clients ; but it should be fun. We are fortunate that we have been able to create this in an historically significant building in the middle of World Heritage site.”
