Charlotte Baker

“Working with the team at Autumn Live enabled us to get a solid handle on our strategic objectives for social media, so we really understood why we were doing what we were doing, and they helped us to choose the best practical tools to crack on with the job.  It is testament to how useful the process was that, months later, the strategy document they delivered is still on my desk covered in handwriting and sticky notes and regularly referred to. They are passionate, knowledgable, thorough and easy to understand and to work with – just what we were looking for.”

Moving forward with our plans for 2019, it’s great to have Autumn Live on board.”

“Like any great event producer, Jan of Autumn Live, is well organised, efficient and carries out event delivery to a high standard. What sets Jan apart, however, are her people skills and integrity. She remains calm and logical in times of stress, full of ideas and was willing to contribute to all aspects of festival delivery, from volunteer management to marketing and social media management.”

When you’re running massive events with international attention, you need the right team in your corner, and we’re proud to have Autumn in ours.”
