A raft of client wins at a Manchester PowerPoint presentation design agency has fuelled rapid growth at the business.
Buffalo 7 has been appointed by award-winning media company UKTV, British Olympics Authority (Team GB), Old Mutual plc and Kyocera. Other new wins include insurance tech start-up Buzzmove and mobile messaging business OpenMarket, as well as JD Sports.
In just two years, the number of staff at Buffalo 7 has increased from eight to 31, with turnover for 2017 forecast to hit £1.6m, 40% above 2016.
To accommodate this growth, the agency is set to relocate its growing creative team to larger premises in Manchester this summer and has recently opened a commercial centre in Yorkshire, in addition to its base in London.
Buffalo 7 Founder Richard Barnes said: “In the space of few years, it’s been fantastic to see the business transform into the successful creative agency it is today. We believe this is down to the fact we’re genuinely focused on presentations and have expert knowledge in PowerPoint in particular.
“Every time we go into a meeting and show people what PowerPoint can do, it blows their mind – you don’t get more disruptive than that.”
Other clients working with Buffalo 7 include brands such as Dell, Budweiser Budvar, Facebook and PlayStation. The business also works with a large number of SMEs.
Richard added: “The need for stand-out presentations is universal whatever size or type of business you’re in. We’re delighted to have been appointed by clients spanning a real variety of sectors – from large global manufacturers through to the brightest tech start-ups – and we’re looking forward to delivering amazing presentations for them.”
Recent research from Buffalo 7 revealed that when it comes to pitching, many businesses are not prepared. The survey revealed that 60 per cent wished their company had in-house slide-deck experience, with 75 per cent indicating that their company did not provide any formal training for delivering pitches.
Buffalo 7 has plans to open an office in the US in 2018 and in Asia in 2019 to enable it to become a 24-hour operation.
