Testimonials and why clients like to work with us

“Fourtold goes far beyond a simple client-agency relationship. The team understands the dynamics of our industry and has translated that into actions that enable us to maintain our leadership position in how we engage with our stakeholders.”

Paolo di Lernia, Syngenta Group

“After a pitch, we appointed Fourtold to support our 10-year anniversary campaign. They approached the campaign from a totally different angle, which we would never have considered. Their ability to challenge us from the audience angle was overwhelming and refreshing. The best devil’s advocate there is!

“This made the difference and thanks to them we reached our goals. The quality, enthusiasm and passion of the staff was fantastic!”

Mark Spanbroek, chairman of FIA EPTA
