Corporate 50 2011 Back to Reports & survey Listing


A snapshot of the feedback from producers asked about their ongoing challenges and concerns

The collapse of public sector work
“The government spending cuts impacted on all government and quasi government work.” Barford
“The next 12 months will present increased challenges for corporate producers with an over-reliance on the public sector.” Eon

“The key concern is to retain clients who are being bombarded consistently by companies willing to undertake work at no or very little profit.” Odd Man Out
“People selling on price with little integrity in their delivery. A significant few making false claims can adversely affect the legitimate ones.” Top Banana
“There are lots of companies/one man bands that are offering a cost structure to ‘get the job at whatever cost!’” World Wide

Clients buying on price alone
“In the competitive tendering process, price is all important and the kind of creativity we have seen over previous years will greatly reduce.” Grosvenor TV
“Corporate budgets are getting lower and lower. All real world costs are going up sharply. We feel that budget and turnaround are the key factors in corporate sector business, not creativity or true customer service.” Sandstorm

Long decisions and late payments
“To give one example a mid-November pitch for an event in Portugal for 500 delegates from 30 countries in the first week of January. Even the client agreed that timescales are getting absurd. The downside is rushed work, no opportunity to really make cost-effective decisions, no proper thinking and creative time.“ On Screen 
“We have recently had a large amount of late payers, which has caused a lot of cash flow strain. We know many producers who have had similar experiences.” Fullrange
