Helen Noble - Chief Executive
South Pennines Park
The impact of Viva and its reach placed the South Pennines Park in a different stratosphere from where it was originally. The impact of the SPP launch was far reaching, not only regionally but made its mark nationally in the press outlets. It also raised our profile with our stakeholders and partners. The professionalism, calmness and dedication of the Viva team all led to the South Pennines Park maturing into a professional and confident organisation to deliver England's first renewable designated national landscape. It was a joy to work, and continue to work, with such a team ' long may it continue.

Viva’s approach has really impressed us. The team is pro-active, understands our challenges and is 100% focused on our objectives. ELE prides itself on finding solutions to complex problems and making things possible – when it comes to PR, I’d say that’s what Viva does for us. They deliver an impact.

Greater Manchester Police
Our 2022 recruitment campaign was the most successful campaign that GMP has run in many years – the collaborative work between our Corporate Communications & Engagement Branch and Viva was crucial to achieving this. Ultimately the success of the campaign will be felt by the entire population of Greater Manchester, and this couldn’t have happened without the efforts of the team delivering the campaign.
Natalie Banks - Communications Manager (Internal)
Lancashire & South Cumbria NHS Foundation Trust
“Thanks to the support of Viva, we achieved our highest response rate ever for the NHS Staff Survey. This is a really important way that we engage with staff and gather their honest feedback – helping shape strategic decision making and identifying clear priorities for them and our service users for the coming year. Viva helped develop a strong internal and external campaign for our social channels, and the work across Twitter and LinkedIn really stood out. It was a joy to work with them on this campaign and the result was really impressive. Thank you Viva!

The Viva team adopted a partnership approach which enabled our team to learn and develop alongside the Viva professionals. Working with Viva is like working with a trusted colleague. You know they will deliver, and you know the standard will be high. Having Viva as a part of your team not only produces the end result but also provides a pleasant and fun route to getting there.”

Rossendale Borough Council
“The results we achieved in our recycling figures far outweighed what we expected. The campaign had a clear, easy-to-understand message, that did what it said on the tin! “These results helped us to understand what worked to achieve the behaviour change that’s needed to meet our recycling target by 2025, and as a council, we’ve now got the confidence to roll the campaign out across the borough. Having an agency like Viva involved who asked the right questions, understood what we were trying to achieve and who executed it in such a creative way, demonstrated what can be achieved with a well-run and engaging campaign.

The team at Viva reacted so swiftly to the changing landscape caused by the pandemic, ultimately turning our annual awards ceremony into the biggest success to date. We saw a definite spike in sales activity which will have been helped by the sheer amount of coverage the nominees received, both in traditional media and online, for the Amplifon Awards for Brave Britons. We’re grateful for Viva’s support and direction throughout each campaign.
