Case Study - Marketing Consultancy & Support

University of Chester

The Challenge
The University of Chester’s High Growth Centre was an £8.8m European Regional Development Fund project, aimed at supporting businesses in advanced manufacturing, automotive, environment and engineering sectors.

Part of the project included branding, communications and marketing support for the businesses within the scope of the project, meaning that the University of Chester needed an agency who could quickly deliver a wide range of support to a large number of businesses simultaneously.

The Solution

Zircom were commissioned to deliver creative marketing consultancy support to the pre-start and high growth businesses within the project. Working with businesses whose offerings were often technical and complex, we were able to identify the business goals that would benefit most from marketing support, such as job creation, improved performance, creation of new businesses.

With minimal lead time and tight deadlines our team were able to deliver creative and valuable support including:
