What People say

David Allen
colleague
Steven has always impressed me as someone who is ahead of the game in all things digital. Steven has that unique ability to see how the online world can be relevant to our everyday interactions be they at work or outside. Steven works well with others and always has a keen interest in the wider activities of the business. 
recommendation
Nicholas Allan
colleague
Steven is an incredibly capable chap, I am very happy to recommend him to anyone needing a dependable resource able to drive and support change and developing technologies. He works with passion and insight, and I see him as a contributor to whatever he is involved in.
recommendation
Grant Davidson
colleague
Steven brings a wealth of experience in digital. He is not afraid to challenge the status quo. His manner encourages healthy discussion and debate that broadens collective thinking, often leading to outside the square thinking. He works with people in a collaborative manner and takes time to listen to those around him. He is able to transverse strategic thinking into ‘doing & actions’ that generate meaningful business outcomes, as well as being a great guy to work with!
recommendation
Christine Byatt-Browne
colleague
I worked with Steven on a number of projects and always found him to be approachable and very open to new ideas. He was very keen to learn different ways of expressing ideas to get other stakeholders' buy in and to find the right hook for different audiences. He was very good at describing abstract 'techie' stuff to a non-techie like me, which is always a good thing!
recommendation
Daniel Caradus
colleague
I've worked with Steven on a key project now for over 18 months as a Steering Group member. During this time I have found Steven to be a passionate and client focussed professional who's primary goal is to create mutual value for the business and it's customers. Steven's understanding of customers' needs and expectations is detailed and he has fought hard to make his vision happen (despite a very challenging environment). I would recommend Steven to any organisation that is after a highly motivated customer centric online marketing specialist.

Derek Turnbull
colleague
Steven is a pleasure to work with. A breath of fresh air. It is often hard to get a techie and a designer to work together without sparks..the techie wants it to work well and the designer wants it to look good. No problem there as Steven understands that both matter. Steven created some ground breaking systems in his time at AG - many of which are still in situ. What Steven doesn't know is probably not worth knowing!
recommendation
Michael Roxburgh
colleague
Steven has a unique ability to use his considerable technical knowledge in a practical way to achieve business outcomes. While working in projects he also has the ability to get parties with conflicting views to agree a way forward. He is constantly looking for innovative ways to solve problems and not afraid to challenge the status quo.
recommendation
Carren Richardson-Park
business-partner
Steven's superior analytical skills combined with enthusiasm, made him a pleasure to work with as a team member and also while providing a service. Is a status quo questioner and raises the IQ of an organisation as a whole. Would recommend him in a company going through change or desiring inertia shifts.
recommendation
Nicki Dennis

Steven was great to work with on some early online marketing for the UK publishing industry. The project was constantly changing and yet he kept calm and guided us through and the results were much better than expected. He is intelligent, warm and focussed on getting his customers the results they need.
recommendation
Colin Gordon
business-partner
Steven was my primary contact at Addleshaw Goddard in London, I must say that he was way ahead of his peer group in terms of vision and clarity of thought around an integrated online approach to the client development agenda at his firm. He was highly regarded by clients, colleagues and the industry in general and was able to articulate and develop very innovative online strategies for Addleshaw that were readily adopted by the firm's executive board and implemented. Not only is Steven a consummate business professional, he is also great fun to be around. He is without doubt a major asset to any organisation requiring such a business goal driven and talented individual.
recommendation
Jenna Rose Davidson
colleague
Steven Vincent is an innovative and forward thinker. With his head always on the bigger picture; Steven is an exciting and motivating person to work with directly and in an office environment. Not only has Steven implemented the importance of Social Media and Online Strategy within our Sales Group he has coached and motivated each one of us on a personal and individual level. He has driven positive and energetic cultural change within the company. I would recommend Steven as a ‘value add‘ in any project or team situation.
recommendation
Dave Conaghan
business-partner
My brief was to find someone who could bring a wealth of knowledge in the online space to help drive the online strategy and deliver a number of projects which would transform the company and make it easier for clients to do business with, by simplifying the process, make business critical information readily available and reduce costs. Step up Steven Vincent. Steven has undoubtedly added significant value to the organisation and delivered beyond expectations. Coupled with that, he has brought a number of staff along with him on embracing the digital future, and positively affected cultural change. Steven is bright, articulate, a gentleman and a valuable asset to any company.

Jackie Reiss
service-provider
Steven worked with us on establishing a web presence over a number of years in the relatively early days of the Internet. I was impressed by his commercial, dynamic and client focused approach, which resulted in something that was different, engaging and won us awards! He helped us understand what our clients would be looking for in terms of web content, and how to engage them – and gave us the confidence to do things differently. He was an absolute pleasure to work with – full of energy and creative ideas.
recommendation
Jon McClean
service-provider
Steven was hired by my company several times to review our online presence and to recommend changes to our overall online presence. I was really impressed how he quickly understood our customers, their needs and our value proposition. All of his recommendations were implemented very successfully, with positive, measurable results that stemmed directly from his work. I would not hesitate to hire him again and remain impressed by all he did. Jon McClean- Managing Director Hanovia Ltd (1999-2005)

Steven is one of a small number that I go to for digital thought leadership. Good ideas get stronger and have a better chance of happening when he is involved. I need to learn more from this guy.

Steven is without question a true professional. He is a visionary in the online space and brings relevance to every conversation and presentation he gives. He is one of those unique people who not only walk the walk but talk the talk. You will find Steven on LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook 24/7. Interacting with colleagues inside and outside our business as well as developing the on line story Steven is not only a consumate professional but someone who Iam delighted to be able to call a friend

Steven Vincent worked closely with the library team at the Inner Temple (one of the Inns of Court serving barristers and bar students) to develop our web strategy. This included the creation of a library website and a legal gateway site (AccessToLaw). We found him to be an extremely good and knowledgeable project leader who was always prepared to take the time and trouble to work through our requirements and to give us good advice, and we were extemely pleased with the end results. Steven continued working with us until he left for New Zealand. We all enjoyed working with him and were extremely sorry to lose the benefit of his expertise.
recommendation
Alan Vaughan
colleague
I am more than pleased to recommend Steven Vincent. My involvement with Steven has been through his advocacy of Social Media across Yammer, Twitter, Blogging and LinkedIn during 2010 and 2011. His knowledge in these areas is considerable, yet he has patiently up skilled me in my appreciation of these media and instilled in me the "context and tone rules" required to contribute to them all. Steven understands how they apply within the business arena. He has a knack of encouraging and testing at the same time which results in a fast track to a successful uptake. I hope Steven continues enabling us to create opinions and conversations that are relevant, so we can share our thoughts "socially" online.
recommendation
Maria Cousins

I've had the pleasure of working with Steven over the past 6 months. Steven brings a determination and drive to get the job done and is proactive in removing any roadblocks or obstacles - which as a Project Manager makes my job much easier! Steven has a passion and energy which he brings to his work - I look forward to continuing to work alongside Steven.
recommendation
Sarah Foote

The term change agent is used often but rarely do you get a chance to work with someone who truly embodies this. Stevens has an amazing ability to look at a companies pain points and deliver a strategy that is actually transformational. His intellect combined with his personable nature means that he is a great asset to engage clients with and certainly adds immense value to these relationships. Steven is immersed in new channel technology, a natural innovator and would be a natural choice for companies needing help to drive change as the new world emerges.
recommendation
Greg Martin

What can I say.....pure, raw genius and talent. Steven as a change agent, has this amazing ability to drive change through an unrelenting and strategic focus on the Customer. This focus and vision is really changing the perception of the Datam brand. Great guy to be working with.

I have had the pleasure of working with Steven for the past 15 months on an innovative online project. His energy and drive to make it work, meet deadlines, explore options, gain feedback, what more can I say - Steven is a great all rounder. I certainly wouldnt hesitate to work with him on any project.

Steve is a visionary, a genius and generally all round good guy to work with. Why can I say that? He and I put together the Addleshaw Goddard CSR website www.addleshawgodddard.com/csr in 2006. We did it as a black project - no other firm had gone as far as a microsite before and none had used the ideas that Steve had - which still feature on the site today. We broke ground with it - Law firms blogging? Whatever next? And it wasn't surprising that the site won the Intendance CSR microsite of the year when it did - we were the only possible entry!
