WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY

As a technology startup in the maritime and energy sectors, we rely on BLUE to help lend credibility, create awareness for our brand and, importantly, to help communicate to the industry our ambitions and vision. One of the main attractions to BLUE is their focussed approach on decarbonisation and sustainability, as we also share these core values. We continue to work with BLUE because of a vast amount of industry knowledge, experience, PR contacts and robust network of potential collaborators that we are also able to leverage. As we are building a new technology in a complex environment together with many stakeholders, we depend on clear and intelligent communications to engage the industry in our journey. BLUE manages it all with ease!

DEANNA MACDONALD

CEO - BLOC

We have been working with BLUE for the last 18 months and we are impressed by their professionalism, responsiveness, and fresh and sound ideas. BLUE came in at a time of many changes for our organisation, when trying to launch a new brand image and build international media relations. They helped us to significantly redefine our PR and communications strategy, and further develop our collaboration with international media. The cooperation with BLUE towards achieving our goals and implementing our strategy is excellent. Ship registration is an extremely competitive and aggressive market, and PR and communications need a professional touch. We are glad the team at BLUE is by our side.

IOANNIS EFSTRATIOU

Acting Director, Department of Merchant Shipping - Republic of Cyprus

BLUE has ably supported Verifavia Shipping in launching and developing our EU MRV verification services for the global shipping sector. BLUE has provided us with continuous support and consultancy across brand development, message creation, media relations, social media, event support, speaker opportunities and marketing materials. We particularly appreciate BLUE's responsiveness and overall reliability, as well as their extensive contact network that spans the industry. We would highly recommend BLUE to any organisation that needs to build its brand and reputation in the shipping sector.

JULIEN DUFOUR

CEO - Verifavia Shipping

BLUE has played a pivotal role in supporting Ardmore Shipping from our early beginnings to becoming the public company that we are today, with a fleet of over 20 vessels. BLUE intrinsically understands who we are as an organisation, our goals, our values and the reputation that we wish to build. They are a trusted source of expertise and support on all aspects of our approach to strategic communications and public relations, and they have done an outstanding job of helping us to build our profile and deliver our messages to the tanker market. Put simply, BLUE are an essential part of our team.

MARK CAMERON

Chief Operating Officer - Ardmore Shipping

It’s a tough market out there and we need to get our message to those who make decisions in the maritime sector. BLUE makes that happen, end of story.

CONOR MOWLDS

Director - GAC Training & Service Solutions

BLUE’s ability to think strategically and create a multi-tiered communications platform has allowed us to successfully exploit opportunities not previously available to us. That’s a testament to their ability to understand our business needs, but also – and most crucially – our market and what drives it.
