We aim to improve communication through the expert application of creative thinking, innovation, technology and on the ground hard work.

Responsive. Creative. Calm. Supportive. Honest. Dependable. Professional. Candid.

How we work

We’re a production company, which means we ‘produce’ things. What we produce really does depend on our clients and what they want from us.

For some, we are full production - we literally take care of everything, including helping to decide the comms strategy to work out what events are needed for different audience groups in the organisation through the year and then working on the detail of each of those events, liaising regularly with the stakeholders.

For others, they are content to take on parts of the organisation - the delegate liaison or the venue finding for example - but want support with everything else.

One of the things that characterising our way of working is our commitment. Once we are involved in a project, then we are committed to the success of that project and, regardless of our scope of work, we will contribute and support everyone to help to make it successful.

Practically

We don’t have a sales or pitch team. We meet with you, understand your needs, present and discuss our creative, agree the scope and budget and we get started. You will be working directly with one of our event team throughout and they will be supported by the rest of our team. You will get budget and schedule updates, as well as meetings, as often as you like. We favour routine contact via Facetime or Skype to minimise travel but work to suit you.

Money

We like to deliver the very best value we can for your budget. We are most effective when we are given a budget cap and we deliver everything we can up to that budget. We ring-fence our production ‘fee’ to protect our profits. Everything else we can explain in detail when we meet.

Hierarchy

We work at every level. We have worked directly for Lords, Dukes and Knights as well are Chief Executives and Director-Generals. We work with anyone in any role in an organisation, typically from operations, HR, marketing, PR, comms or executive offices.

We’re a small team of dedicated and loyal event producers, who really care about what we do and how well it works. 

This is a family owned and run business, with a very flat management structure, where everyone has a voice and is able to contribute.

Cascade Productions was founded in 1996, in Manchester UK and from small beginnings it has grown organically and successfully in the decades since. 

We have had the privilege of working with the most fabulous people and in countries across the world, managed hundreds of thousands of delegates and helped to improve businesses, organisations and charities. 

The business has donated tens of thousands of pounds to charity and provided the starting point of a number of great event careers, while winning industry awards along the way.
