The Clive Approach

We believe that for live communication to be truly effective, brands need to engage with people, not talk at them. For us, it’s the difference between creating events and experiences.

Sometimes clients come to us with some pretty ambitious objectives like completely changing the perception of their brand or product, or altering the behaviours of their staff or customers. Some clients simply ask us for our event management know-how to help them get in front of people, build a buzz, celebrate or entertain. Whether a brand’s communications challenge is big or small, internal or external, our approach always starts at the end. We get to know the audience and the action our clients want the audience to take, then consider this in everything we do.

We’re committed to using original design, cutting-edge technology, unusual destinations, theatre, viral techniques and the kind of straight-talking language people are used to hearing, as a way of helping making communication memorable and effective.

Our solutions come in many forms but can be grouped together into the following categories:

  • Conferences, exhibitions & awards
  • Experiential events & launches
  • Incentive travel programmes
  • Team motivational activities & hospitality
  • Digital & multimedia campaigns
