Testmonial: Bruce Davidson, COO, ADG

I’ve known and worked with Chris for many years on a variety of interesting projects and in all sorts of places around the world. If there is anyone more suited to intricate problem solving and thinking outside of the box for solutions than Chris, you really won’t find them. For ADG, my musical and pro-audio equipment distribution business, Chris has been instrumental for helping me develop and build our industry-class-leading website and B2B dealer portals, while at the same time coming up with some great innovative ways to manage our budget and allow us to minimise excess expenditure on the project. With so much tech development in the online sector that can now be carried out in Asia etc., on the surface there may well be what can initially appear to be lower cost solutions for some of the things Chris does, but they will take you longer, be way more complicated to implement and not be tailored to suit your business needs. Working with DADD is not only rewarding, it is highly recommended!

Dadd has just completed building two websites for my businesses that are already working well. This company is a pleasure to deal with and honest and genuine. My previous experiences with website builders has not been good and working with Chris has been a breath of fresh air even though I still hate computers. His knowledge and advise has given me the confidence to already recommend Dadd to a friend and she is very pleased with the services received too. This company does not do “the hard sell, sell, sell” but actually listened to what I needed from my websites and has delivered more than I could hope for with new clients already being generated. 100% recommend.

DADD created a superb new mobile friendly website for our building firm maysgroundworks.co.uk. It took them a very short time with little guidance as they understand lots of businesses. They’re easy to work with, particularly for people who aren’t technical. Highly recommend over other local web design companies.

Testimonial: Softools, Andy Bruce CEO

Chris is a highly informed business leader who is comfortable working across all disciplines and sectors.  He joined Softools to bring the commercial acumen that as a growing tech business we needed but lacked, and during his time he contributed to all aspects of the business from strategic planning and product design to front end sales and marketing.  His knowledge combined with his constant enthusiasm, wit and creativity gave our team the confidence needed to go after one of the fastest growing tech sectors today.

DADD really cooked up a great plan to get my website found fast by customers. My original web developer failed to understand Google search results and SEO. Chris redesigned my site and now people can find my customers’ testimonials and the catering services I offer across Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Hampshire and London.

DADD initially rescued me for a campaign earlier this year when my web development company went AWOL and took the keys to our marketing agency’s work. With only 48 hours to go, DADD leapt into action, took control of the situation and delivered a very successful result for my newspaper client. Since then, we’ve worked together on campaigns promoting hotels, swimming courses and beauty spas. DADD’s 24/7 responsiveness, creative talents and understanding of the promotions industry is second to none.

Testimonial: Shirley Goodgroves, Real Interiors UK

As an interior designer, it’s essential for me to showcase my brand values of contemporary, affordable interior design. DADD took my brief that was as basic as “I want my logo and website to look contemporary, but I can’t describe what I want it to look like until I see it.” With lots of iterations over possible styles for fonts, colour mixes and layouts, DADD read my mind and delivered something that has become my business card, stylish postcard brochures and digital website in weeks. I’ll be going back to ask him for my mobile site and SEO soon I’m sure.

Martin Crew 5 star PADI instructor at scubacrew.net

Testimonial: Martin Crew, 5* PADI Scuba Diving Instructor and MD of Scuba Crew

My scuba diving school needed a fresh image to attract more students as the local competition has increased. The website design needed to cover all aspects of course information and be an ecommerce shop for my customers to pay for courses and rental gear.  DADD didn’t have a ‘padi’ about my ever changing requests for logo design, website tweaks and teaching my team how to use the WordPress editor. In fact, I loved my lobster logo so much I put it on my gear van, His A5 leaflet design was superb, so I had 5000 printed immediately.  Then I commissioned DADD to sort out my listing position on google and he had me on page 1 for all the terms I wanted within 2 weeks, saving me a fortune in time and money on Adwords and directories.

I was introduced to DADD in 2011 through a trusted friend who was President at FirstData and now runs a boutique advisory business called anthemis edge. He jumped into helping our charity with both feet and aside from raising funds by climbing Kilimanjaro, his ongoing digital marketing guidance has been phenomenal; sorting out our design, web development (in Joomla) and social media so we can focus on our charity’s purpose, which is to educate children all over Africa to help eradicate poverty.

Astute, creative and innovative. That sums up my experience of working with Chris. He did an excellent job chairing the 5th Mobile Commerce Summit Asia 2012 in Singapore peppering the summit with his expert analysis, adding value and helicopter insight for everyone to appreciate. His engaging personality is contagious, especially apparent when he conducts workshops as he easily gets the whole class lively and active. I will personally recommend him highly as a chairman and workshop/facilitator.”

Testimonial: John Bush, President, CEO & Founder, Sona Mobile Inc.

During the partnership between Sona Mobile and WIN, I had the opportunity to meet Christopher and appreciate his work both as Head of Products and as a MD of WIN Financial. Being passionate about customer, technology and products, he excelled in creating new and innovative solutions for his financial services customers. He made astute business decisions concerning complex mobile operator channel negotiations, contents rights management and product design. Sometimes decisions needed to be made during business planning meetings and be well validated, in other times they had to be made on the spot during a major milestone. Chris understood at all times, if the right choice was not in the list of available options, he worked diligently to build the solution needed to put it on the list. In all of those cases, Christopher made the right choices balancing pragmatism and visioning
