"I was recommended to use DFA by a colleague and I am absolutely delighted with the success of all the various projects we have worked on together so far.

DFA has far exceeded our expectations with their enthusiasm, energy and passion. The way in which Damon structures and executes his events and projects is in a very professionally skilled manner.

I have found DFA are very quick to understand our requirements and are experts in advising for the very best possible outcome, anticipating exactly what we are looking for. This is always done with a timely and cost effective approach, keeping us informed every step of the way.

I cannot recommend Damon and his team highly enough and would like to personally thank him for the work carried out to date for the HM Government. I look forward to taking things further next year and to working with DFA again as I know that DFA's involvement will enhance our Communications programme going forward.

Professor David Philp, Head of BIM Implementation at the Cabinet Office

"I'm very pleased that we at Balfour Beatty Construction Services have been able to work with Damon and his team at DFA Productions. We used their services recently at a large conference with over 200 delegates. Their professionalism in support of the conference preparation and the development of material, rehearsing presenters on the day and the actual running of the event was tremendous. We found DFA to be flexible, approachable and responsive to issues and last minute changes. As a result of this we had an extremely successful event and I will certainly enjoy working with Damon and his team at DFA Productions on future assignments going forward."

Business Efficiency Director, Balfour Beatty Plc

"We found DFA had a very quick understanding of what we were trying to achieve. Once the brief had been given it was very much up to DFA, working closely with the Balfour Beatty team on site, to produce the video that illustrated the Terminal 2B BIM story. They also had to deliver the video for a conference in the United States under a very tight schedule which they managed to do with ample time to spare. DFA are very professional, hard-working with excellent attention to detail and I would have no qualms in recommending their services and hope to work with them again soon".

"I worked with DFA Productions when I was Advocacy Manager for Mortgage Sales in Halifax Community Bank.

Damon and his team helped the Halifax Mortgage Business to set up the concept of 'MSF TV' which was a communication channel to help our Mortgage Director communicate key leadership messages to the mortgage advisers using short video..

Damon brought a number of specialist skills to the projects that greatly enhanced delivery and landing of the messages - such as: he developed a creative opening sequence which we used to great affect at the start of each programme - and this helped to embed the programme within our range of leadership communications.

DFA also brought with them a highly professional support team on sound, camera and autocue who all added value to ensure we had a great end result; DFA would take our script and have this professionally edited by one of the team, helping us to really focus on the key messages and getting them across in the best way; Damon provided coaching best practice 'in front of the camera' techniques to our MD."

The end result was a series of short 'talking head' films that were well received in the business.

Throughout I found Damon an enthusiastic business partner, he always delivered on his promises, had a strong commitment to quality and also had a keen eye on the costs (such as travelling off-peak) to help us deliver on budget.

"A big thank you to all at DFA for contributing greatly to our recent team building event for the ITV northern sales force.

European Sales Director, Total/LJF

""I would like to thank everyone at DFA Productions for their help and support producing this year's National Managers Conference. DFA helped us connect with our managers by interviewing and filming key customers and staff and by putting together informative and engaging videos. The set and staging looked fabulous, the breakout sessions were facilitated by DFA and then we finished the day on a high with an awards ceremony, gala dinner and evening entertainment. The whole production was completed within seven weeks and the complete day ran without a hitch. We are therefore really looking forward to working with DFA in the future."

"A very big thank-you and congratulations must go to DFA for a most successful Supplier Forum. It achieved my objective of repositioning us in the eyes of our suppliers. You are to feel proud of your contribution. It was a great day. Thanks once again."

CEO, Hagemeyer UK

"Up until this year, we'd always made our own internal conferences. Well, what a huge difference DFA made! They really showed how to make internal communications work and put on a stunning and thoroughly motivational event for us. Our company conference has been a great success both in terms of motivated employees and improving results. Sales showed an immediate large up turn following the event and I've no doubt that the conference played a big part in that success."

Managing Director, OSRAM

"In the space of a few short weeks, DFA helped create and produce a first-class conference, a series of highly effective and memorable roadshows, plus an interactive training video for Homeserve plc. We were not only delighted with the result of each project but also the huge motivating effect that each one had on our staff members."

CEO, Homeserve Emergency Services

"DFA produced both excellent speaker support material and motivational video modules for our crucial management conference. Their expertise in organising the whole event, very impressive stage and lighting, highly inspirational break-out sessions and a gala dinner held in a marquee was a major factor with our impressive sales success following the event."
