What people are saying about us
“Cormac did an amazing job delivering a social media platform for me to help us connect our teams working globally on a major telco client. The project was developed on wiki technology and skinned to look like Facebook and the tools we see today, it worked so well even the chairman of our client commented on how cool it was the PwC could delivery such a thing just to ensure we deliver value to our client. Cormac's strength, determination and grasp of both technology and people issues made this happen.” ~ Andy Woodfield, Partner at PwC, Head of International Development Consulting, Leadership, Culture and Talent Partner
"I engaged Bright Beehive in order to understand how I could incorporate Social Media into our intelligence gathering services. Cormac and Nick make a dynamic team and their combined experiences and backgrounds provided me with a deep understanding of how the field is progressing as well as how to become involved. Nick and Cormac have a real buzz about them so the brainstorming sessions were exciting, knowledge fuelled and littered with practical examples. Off the back of working with Bright Beehive, I was able to conduct a three month study into the usage of social media within Competitive Intelligence and have integrated my findings into our everyday intelligence collection activities. In addition, I have presented my findings at two congresses in 2010 and have acquired three major clients as a result of my interactions with Bright Beehive." ~ Beth Elliott, Vice President Healthcare Europe, Fuld & Company
"Bright Beehive built a website for me, complete with blogging functionality, and gave me some social media advice last year which immediately saw an increase in traffic to my site. In the past I was paying for Google ads to generate traffic but with Bright Beehive's advice this was no longer necessary. Very soon I was making a saving of £1000 per year as the expense on Google ads was no longer necessary. I have had many, many jobs through as a result of Bright Beehive's advice. I even got a job through from Grammy-winning artist Steve Earle. Where in the past I was mostly doing guitar repairs, I now am doing what it is that I was trained in, that is making stringed instruments. This year I have had 6 commissions which is enough to see me through until Sept 2011. Also I can now cherry-pick the interesting repairs that I wish to do, making my day to day work life far more interesting and enjoyable. Bright Beehive's advice has simply transformed my business. I cannot recommend them highly enough." ~ Graham Parker, Luthier of stringed instruments
"Cormac has been advising me on my use of social media to gain traction and traffic on my website. Having instigated these practices, I immediately saw a hike in the number of new visitors and subscribers to my site which has now escalated to the point where the success of my European-centric blog has prompted a US AND and Australian website to ask me to guest blog (a paid role in both instances) for them.
I cannot recommend Cormac highly enough. He makes a complex subject easy to understand, doesn't speak "geek" and yet turns in truly remarkable results.
If you're even remotely intrigued about how social media can enhance your company's online presence, call him....NOW!" ~ Mark Anthony, Owner, Mark Anthony Publicity
