PROFESSIONAL, CREATIVE AND THOROUGH Zendesk partnered with Ashton Media on an extremely successful virtual fireside chat video and webinar. Throughout the entire delivery process Ashton were incredibly professional, creative and thorough. They took the time to understand our objectives, which they delivered on, and developed the content with our team and client. We came away with a professionally filmed piece of long-form video content that stands out from the crowd. In addition to the production, Ashton delivered a senior audience of CX professionals to the webinar itself. We're currently discussing our next exciting project with the Ashton team

STRONG NETWORK & LEVEL OF OWNERSHIP Ashton Media partnered with us for our customer event in Australia “Dropbox Connect” in June 2019.  Dropbox Connect is our highest profile event for the year in Australia and was attended by Dropbox senior executives from headquarters. Ashton Media was tasked with the sourcing of impactful keynote speakers, finding an appropriate venue and contributing to a relevant turnout. Ashton Media's strong network of keynote speakers, understanding of the type of content that would resonate with our audience, along with a strong level of ownership in building an audience resulted in a well-attended event with top quality content that generated strong positive feedback and commercial outcomes.

THE STRATEGY AND EXECUTION WERE OUTSTANDING We worked with the team at Ashton Media on a private dinner to help us build relationships with and garner insights from a hard to reach a group of Melbourne agency leaders. From the time we first spoke about the project, the strategy and execution they put into place were outstanding. We had a very specific target list and the team delivered all of them, and, we had zero no-shows on the night. Our guests loved it and we are confident it will help us grow our business in Melbourne. I would highly recommend Ashton Media as a go-to event partner in Australia.
