We're a 'full service' conference production company - we deliver entire packages. Or we'll handle one or multiple parts of your conference with gusto. However large our role in a conference, we're known for our creative, detail-orientated approach. Whichever aspects we work on, we inject passion and our famous 'it' factor.

Tough briefs

Organise an exhilarating international conference; find inspiring speakers for a UK conference; create videos and materials to engage delegates. These are all the sort of briefs we're used to. For more than 30 years we've been solving big problems, niche problems, delicate problems - all types of problems - and have learnt that no concern is too trivial. No detail should be left unattended. And organising conferences should never become 'a breeze' - when it does, we'll know we're not thinking creatively enough.

Exceeding expectations

When faced with a job, we think "ah, the possibilities!" and approach it with experience, professionalism and forward-thinking. Being at the very heart of the conference production industry means we're aware of the latest trends and technology, and we're habitually inventing new techniques to get results. Delegates expect something new or innovative, and that helps them engage.

Engagement is key to conferences

People learn when they engage. They listen, they respond, they think - and, ultimately, they have the most fulfilling experience. If we can work out a way to make an audience respond to something we're on to a winner. And we love coming up with creative ways to get inside people's heads, and will use any approach to do so. From thought-provoking to humorous, creating the right medium and delivery style for your messages is key.

Work with us, or leave it to us

Some clients like to be involved every step of the way, and we encourage input and feedback from these clients. On the other hand, some prefer it when we take the reins and carry the job on our own shoulders. Whether you're looking for someone to trust to deliver a successful conference, or someone to guide and advise you, you can rely on our experience.

Our secret ingredient

Over more than 30 years in the business we've perfected one secret ingredient, which is entirely our own. We're immensely proud of this ingredient which nobody else can boast. And that's our not-so-little black book of contacts. We've worked with an epic-length list of creatives and companies over the years and know exactly who to call on for every unique event we organise. Whether it's choosing the right caterers, venue or entertainers, we consult our not-so-little black book to identify the perfect fit.

You Say…

  • Geoff and his team delivered a fantastic day from start to finish for our Graduate Networking Event. The main aim of the day was to give all our group graduates (88 who don’t see each other as a group very often) the opportunity to network with each other, work together as a team and to network with a number of key senior managers from across our business. We wanted to deliver something different than just presentations and your standard team building exercises. Geoff and his team certainly did that!

  • Sentinel's annual staff conference day was a resounding success. Here's what our employees said: * the best staff conference yet! * an excellent day * made me feel proud * fantastic activities! As one of the organisers I say: The Challenge Factor won our business because: 1. The central activity while fun in itself was a vehicle for an important message which staff 'got'. 2. They managed everything so well, to time and to budget. 3. Good ideas! The 'voice of God' for one - done brilliantly! 4. Abbie and Liz are reliable, professional and knowledgeable and their input on AV was great. 5. Good partners from inception to finish.

  • Just a quick thank you for providing such an impressive and professional day for us yesterday. The feedback from all parties involved has been fantastic.

  • It doesn’t matter if that audience is just 5 people or a large crowd of 5,000 people Geoff will give your presenters the skills, knowledge, tips and ultimately the confidence to present with style and swagger.

  • Geoff and the team are professional, maintain a high level of enthusiasm throughout the event and always bring new and innovative approaches to team building and work ethics exercises and break-out session.

    Mike DHL Supply Chain Senior Vice President 
  • I have been fortunate to have attended 3 conferences organized by Geoff and The Challenge Factor, all consumately professional, extremely creative and a lot of fun. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the team to any company looking to run a conference with a 'difference'.
