We are very pleased with the finished product that was completed on time and to a very high standard. I have no hesitation in recommending BPC.
Stuart Hawker - Marketing and Business Analyst, Dunlop Aircraft Tyres
Thank you very much for all your work on our splendid Atlas, which is drawing gasps of admiration from everyone who sees it here at Palgrave. I know it wasn't the easiest or smoothest of projects to work on so I'm especially grateful for all your patience, effort and expertise.
Michael Strang - Publisher - History, Palgrave Macmillan
I am really, really pleased with it - it's everything I hoped it would be. I just wanted to say, straightaway, a most sincere thank you to you all for the help and support you've given me on this project from day one. It couldn't have happened without you!
Bill Cooper - NFU Mutual
You really have achieved something for us that we couldn't have done here (not without me having a nervous breakdown, I assure you!)
Elizabeth Hallett - Production Manager, Penguin UK
Many thanks to everyone at BPC who enabled the HSBC Insurance Brokers 200 year history book to be published on time and within budget. As one of its project managers, until I became involved, I had not appreciated how crucial each role within BPC was in the process. Their professionalism, creativity, design, actual production, quiet but firm approach to deadlines and late alterations, was most impressive. BPC have been a thoroughly nice group of people to work with and, by all accounts, the book has been well received by its readers, especially amongst those who only knew a small part of its fascinating history. The authors, Laurie Dennett and Stephanie Zarach, are also to be congratulated.
Charles Ledsom - Former Director of Corporate Responsibility, HSBC Insurance Brokers
Jesus: The Life of a Cambridge College is, on any reckoning, a handsome volume and members and friends of the College have been delighted with it. BPC's superb publishing team - managing editor, book designer, copy editor, proofreaders, production manager - were a pleasure to work with, and not only because they were so keen to ensure that every aspect of the book was absolutely right. They provided its editor (me!) with all the support he could have hoped for.
Peter Glazebrook - Emeritus Fellow Jesus College, Cambridge
Once again, working with BPC was more like fun than work. Where else do you get a designer who's cheerfully willing to comply with every new phase of the client's ideas (thank you, Pete), production people who give you the figures exactly as you want them and within hours of being asked (thank you Debbie), instant turn-round of copy with eagle-eyed editing (thank you Jo'e), coffee provided the minute you appear (thank you Jo) and sandwiches brought you by the boss (thank you Colin)? Not to mention a sumptuous product at a really reasonable rate, with no corners cut, delivered on time and to the right address. 25 years on from when I first used them, BPC are as good as ever.
Dr Ruth Smith - Cambridge University Careers Service
Everyone here at Spencer Stuart is delighted with Spencer Stuart: The First Fifty Years. All the compliments are about the production & design, which seem to be exceeding everyone's expectations. I know that we forced you to tear up just about every production schedule you produced, nevertheless you always continued to pursue the best possible outcome for us. The design is really terrific, the format, paper quality, endpapers and bulk all perfect. The jacket finished off what is a really high quality production worthy of Spencer Stuart's 50th anniversary.
Alastair Rolfe - Spencer Stuart
You'll be pleased to know that we are very happy with the end result and I've already had some very encouraging feedback from various people. Please pass on my thanks and congratulations to everyone at BPC for producing such an excellent result in such a short time. It was both fun and a pleasure working with your team again, all of whom continue to be so enthusiastic, accommodating, patient and understanding. They also have this fantastic ability of being able to maintain a "can do" approach, even under the most difficult circumstances and, at the same time, give the client the reassuring feeling that they the are the most important thing on their mind at that particular time.
David Dean - Marketing Director, Christie & Co
This is just a note to say how magnificent I think the just published annual report is. It's stylish, meaty and easy on the eye and does us proud. The whole thing is a world away from the tired and turgid reports I edited for so many years and I think everyone connected with the project deserves huge congratulations.
John Parke - Company Secretary, The Booksellers Association
We were aiming very high, in terms of book production, and you can't be an expert in everything. We saw that at the outset we needed to hire really experienced people in the field of book-production. We went to BPC, whose staff from the top downwards were extremely supportive. Since 1997 they have helped us product eight volumes, all of which have reaped high praise
Jeremy Wilson - Castle Hill Press (scholarly editions of T.E. Lawrence's works)
I am writing to record my thanks and sincere appreciation for BPC's help and assistance in producing The History of General Accident. The book has now been fully distributed throughout the world and has, without exception, been very well received. CGNU (now Aviva) considers itself to have been well served.
Richard Whitaker - Group Company Secretary, CGNU plc (Now AVIVA plc)
As a major charity, our publishing needs are complex and wide-ranging. BPC has always responded swiftly and sensitively to those needs, and with real understanding of the NCT ethos.
Belinda Phipps - Chief Executive, National Childbirth Trust
The main challenge of our publications lies in their detailed complexity. It is a considerable organisational and logistical task to co-ordinate and manage a variety of continually changing information.
For 10 years BPC has demonstrated a proven ability to deliver our publications to high standards of editorial and production quality whilst consistently achieving revenue targets.
Diana James - Head of Marketing Services, London Tourist Board (now Visit London)
