Speyside has been contributing to AliExpress’ success since the very beginning. Whilst knowledge and skills can be developed, attitudes are based on people. Speyside is committed to being part of your team, working hard to both achieve and surpass your goals.
Speyside Corporate Relations has been our go-to PR agency in the Brazilian market for many years because of a few simple reasons: First, they have a deep understanding of the Latin American media landscape; second, they’re skilled PR strategists and tacticians; and lastly, but most important, they apply these to help us get great results.
Speyside has brought real value to our work. I emphasize that the value brought was not only in achieving the objectives and meeting deadlines, but also throughout the process they introduced a new way of thought that ended up significantly enriching the approach that the company had originally developed. I would also like to highlight the speed with which the Speyside team understood the issues raised and their assertiveness in proposing solutions.
It is rare to find advisors who not only are experts in their field but that truly understand how to apply their knowledge and expertise to real life issues and situations. Speyside´s understanding and sensitivity to local cultures and to our company´s organizational dynamics allowed them to integrate seamlessly into our team and to help us address difficult and urgent corporate responsibility challenges in both Brazil and Chile in an effective and timely manner. Having the Speyside team at my side during my two and a half years as head of Kinross´ mining operations in South America was extremely valuable.
It seems incredible that only a month has passed from the first phone calls to find out about you guys, to the work the team ultimately delivered. The team is totally customer focused, not afraid to challenge, but always delivers. They demonstrated incredible knowledge and great media contacts. We needed lots of flexibility, quick thinking and patience. The team delivered that in spades. I can?t imagine what it would have been like without them.
They are extremely professional, rapid learners and laser-focused on getting results. We were pleased with their ability to quickly assimilate our needs and articulate those to industry stakeholders. They are a valuable resource and a trusted partner for our company
Speyside has become a key partner in our regional business strategy. They have proven time and time again they are an experienced agency with a customer focused approach. They have made a big difference to our business and we look forward to a long term relationship with them.
