Bit Famous success stories
Claire Marsh, Project Lead for NatWest and COO for NatWest Retail Banking
The training has succeeded in giving NatWest teams the confidence to deliver an excellent customer experience on screen. As video appointments quickly became our number one service offering, the skills required to deliver a great customer experience every time fundamentally changed. We wanted to develop a capability programme to provide an expert-led, blended learning solution to set advisers up for success and to be able to build strong connections with their customers through focused media training. Working with Bit Famous helped us to achieve an exceptional capability programme.

"A fantastic job"
Abigail Scott Paul, Director of External Relations and Strategic Partnerships at LEEDS 2023
Bit Famous have done a fantastic job in boosting our team's confidence and ability to articulate and sell the vision and story of LEEDS 2023 to media, business and political stakeholders. As a time-limited start-up with a hard-deadline, we needed to move fast to establish our credibility with stakeholders quickly. The work they've done with us has allowed us to crystallise the 'why?' organisations, companies and the public should back us; it's also given us the tools and learning to get out there confidently and secure new partnerships, business relationships and funding. Since their training our media and digital engagement is up by 91% and 65% respectively and we've landed 10 new businesses as sponsors including our first all important headline partner, at a six-figure level!
