Quotes

The Diocese of Ely

“It has been a pleasure working with Isidore/Wild Duck Productions throughout the entire process of building a new Diocesan website. From the outset they were extremely helpful in working with us to deliver what we needed within a managed budget. Their breadth of knowledge, ranging from the technical elements of the build, right through to their project management skills while liaising with third party developers and copywriters was a huge benefit. I wouldn’t hesitate in working with them again when the opportunity arises.” James Owen, Head of Communication, The Diocese of Ely

Youth Evangelism and Discipleship

“Tom was brilliant in helping facilitate our webinar. He showed great professionalism, was well informed and knowledgeable whilst being very flexible and accommodating to our needs. His experience and know how were a valuable asset and I would thoroughly recommend him to others.” Jimmy Dale, National Youth Evangelism Officer, The Church of England

Greenhouse – Fresh Expressions for the Church of England

“Working with Isidore is a joy, as their calm competence is reassuring and their expertise allows for really creative engagement. Wholeheartedly recommend!” The Revd Heather Cracknell, Head of Development for Fresh Expressions in the Church of England

The Guild of Health and St Raphael

“Tom at Isidore helped my small charity organise the biggest online event in our 100+ year history. He provided clear training and support throughout the process, so that I was able to chair the event with confidence knowing that all the behind-the-scene technology was working. He also supported my team to work efficiently with guest questions. I would highly recommend Tom for online events and for helping create events to a high standard.” The Revd Dr Gillian Straine, Chief Executive Officer, The Guild of Health and St Raphael

The Lambeth Conference

“Isidore have provided excellent input and consultancy in a planning process for one of our virtual events. The Isidore Team have also been a reliable set of hands with event production needs. Delivering events and conferences has been hugely changed by the pandemic. The need to engage people in person and online is a growing space and opportunity. Speak with Tom at Isidore for friendly and constructive advice on virtual engagement and related content production approaches” Janet Miles, Head of Communications, The Lambeth Conference Company

Visual Language Professionals (VLP)

“When Visual Language Professionals (VLP) first embarked on the idea of an online conference, we had no idea how to create a remote event that allowed delegates and presenters to connect, network and collaborate in a way that felt like we were all in the same room. Tom Pearson from Wild Duck Productions took the time to understand our requirements and create a package of support that complimented the skills we already had and he worked with us to build the conference experience to an incredibly high standard. Tom’s professional focus, support and technical expertise ensured that every detail was attended to before the event so that he could focus on the technical tasks at hand – managing the technology, pre-recorded and live content, presenters, presentations, session hosts, backstage crew and British Sign Language Interpreters – at every session throughout the weekend. Tom delivered on every aspect of his work and I would not hesitate to recommend Wild Duck Productions to anyone considering an online event as VLP will be asking Tom to work with us again in the future.” Peter Salkeld, Chair of Directors, Visual Language Professionals Ltd

York Minster

“We have worked with Tom on two projects during the last six months [a series of high profile Advent webinars, and a series of large-scale online meetings across Lent]. His expertise and quiet, calm demeanour filled us with confidence which liberated our ‘in house team’ to focus on our guests and the subject matter. Tom provided pre-training which helped us to upskill and become more comfortable with the use of technology and most importantly – not to panic! As a Christian institution it was also really helpful to us that he was familiar and at ease with the Christian faith and was able to converse easily with theological language and knowledge. I look forward to working with him again on future projects from York Minster.” The Revd Canon Maggie McLean, Canon Missioner, York Minster

Life Events and Welcome

“I am the kind of person who needs an interpreter to help me get the most from the internet, so that we can create websites that truly meet the needs of those we serve as the Church of England. Tom is brilliant at interpreting our vision and needs to developers and others, and then translating back again to us, so that we deliver outstanding products, not just in the development phase, but in the ongoing support that is needed.” The Revd Canon Dr Sandra Millar, Head of Life Events and Welcome for the Archbishops’ Council of the Church of England.

The Diocesan and Cathedrals Digital Community (DC2)

“Tom acts as project manager for our consortium of Church of England dioceses as we work together on a common website platform. He took over this role when the future of the project was uncertain and has helped to guide us towards a solution that satisfies the needs of all. His expertise in online solutions, understanding of the Church, meticulous attention to detail, and determination to keep every stakeholder on board have been exemplary.” Neil Pugmire
Chair Person, The Diocesan and Cathedrals Digital Community

The Archbishop of York

“Working with Tom and the team at Isidore was an absolute pleasure. Tom’s calm, professional and solution solving approach alongside his cheerful and positive attitude is just what you need. Nothing is ever too much trouble. Tom was 1st class and definitely someone we’ll be returning to work with again in the future.”
