Our clients and testimonials
People with purpose work with Mission Drive when they want to make an impact
“The Mission Drive team were a pleasure to work with. Quick to understand the brief, excellent turnaround times and quality deliverables. Their agile approach and can-do attitude really stood out, particularly with a website launch project involving a tight deadline that needed all hands on deck – including reaching out to their network to bring in additional support at short notice. Highly recommended.”
“A great big thank you Mission Drive, for putting together a fantastic piece of work for our conference submission. The research done really highlights the importance and relevance of our approach to data literacy at the ODI. Thank you for the work to help us get the campaign out and the survey responses too. These have been great, while also reigniting conversations that clients like Sport England want to have with us..”
“Mission Drive are a joy to work with. They used their expertise to help me define and deliver a programme of data literacy work in EDF which is realising benefits. Particularly impressive, is that they don’t just deliver a brief, but show leadership by challenging the work asked of them to shape it into the deliverable that EDF really needs.”
"Working with Mission Drive has been game changing for ByzGen. As a small business with limited organic assets, Mission Drive quickly helped us develop our proposition and create great content which radically increased our visibility in the market. They are a highly valued asset and very much feel like part of the ByzGen team."
“I highly recommend Mission Drive for their customer-focused approach, collaborative spirit, and deep understanding of data and the world of data training. Working closely with the ODI Learning team, they have provided invaluable ideas and solutions for our online and face-to-face courses. Their tailored marketing efforts have resulted in a significant increase in enrollment. We look forward to continuing our successful partnership with Mission Drive.”
“In all my years of partnering with external agencies, the team at Mission Drive were hands down the best partners I have worked with. They understood the outcome we needed for the project – even when the path to getting there was slightly ambiguous. We are a high growth start-up building new concepts for heavy weight global clients so hiring in the right expertise that could act flexibly was critical. The team went above and beyond to collaborate on the thinking , bring in creative solutions and deliver on the asks within tight deadlines. Mission Drive felt very much like an extension of my team and I would not hesitate to recommend them”
“The need to move to online teaching during Covid, meant we had to cancel our plan to play Datopolis with our uni students. Mission Drive were very flexible however, and kindly agreed to a live, interactive debate instead. Thanks to Simon's background and experience, it covered important key themes, giving the students fresh perspective on such topics as data democracy, the development of the web, social implications and potential for data sharing, and how data translation is important for modern organisations. It provided a fantastic foundation and learning session, which was thought provoking, refreshing, entertaining, and educational. Many thanks from a grateful course leader.”
“I worked with the Mission Drive team (particularly Simon, Candice and Seb) on a number of projects while I was at the ODI (from content planning and customer journey mapping, to marketing campaign planning and delivery)... the team always went out of their way to be helpful and supportive – it felt like they were an extension of the ODI’s marketing and comms team, and I always appreciated their calm approach to any problem. They’re great fun to work with too!”
“I’ve worked with Mission Drive for several years as part of my role as Production Manager at the Open Data Institute. I’ve worked closely with Simon, Candice, Seb, Rhiannon and the team who’ve always been responsive, professional, personable (and fun to work with!). The team are great at developing ideas, strategies and solutions, and most importantly, getting things done – from marketing campaigns, social media strategies and copywriting through to CRM management and Google Analytics. They also seamlessly slotted into our project management system/tasks which made collaborative working really easy. Highly recommended!”
“Mission Drive have a can-do approach and really took the time to understand our business, our product and our ideas. They turn this understanding into a clear plan and always seem to be able to deliver - even when we change our minds about things at the last minute!”
"Datopolis is entertaining and engaging. It’s a great way to initiate conversation amongst people."
"Would definitely recommend Mission Drive, particularly if you don’t want blank faces staring at you, but want people to get involved"
