Virginia Birrell – CEO of Australia China Business Council VIC – July 31, 2018

Philip is a talented videographer and interviewer. Philip supports the work of The Australia China Business Council in Victoria to educate businesses to help them to grow their opportunities with China. I recommend a conversation with Philip if you are looking to promote your organisation via a social media platform.

Sh’ana Shean – Womens’ Mysteries Leader – April 18, 2018

Philip was an incredible champion for our campaign. We would not have been able to realize our dream without his unwavering support, knowledge and clarity.

With Philip’s guidance we were able to get to the very heart of what we had to share with the world and then he set about teaching us how to build and reach a receptive audience to share it with.

His direction and support made our campaign an enormous success on so many levels. My co-founder and I went beyond our original goal, we now have a strong professional network, are so much more competent and able to steer our business in alignment with our mission statement; our general network has grown enormously and we have crossed geographic boundaries to reach a global audience – mainly, we have been equipped to continue to grow the foundations he has created for us, which we are so grateful for.

In short, Philip is very professional, human and understanding of our personal quirks and ways of doing things.

More than working in and on our project, he supported us in growing within ourselves so that we could authentically achieve what we set out to.

The team at Bravo Charlie set up systems for us to collaborate and work effectively within from our first meeting; communication was always open and our many questions were answered clearly and with consistent overall direction to our goal; Philip never stopped giving 100%.

My co-founder and I highly recommend Bravo Charlie and Philip to any one building a project or business. With this man at your side, you will achieve your dream, your goals and so much more.

Sonny Neale – Strategic Futurist – March 13, 2018

I was extremely impressed with the work Phil did for me. I asked him last minute to create a referral video for me out in the Yarra Valley and he got organised, stayed in communication and did a sterling job. The quality of the video was great, but more importantly, he asked questions that brought the best out of my clients and really captured what was amazing about the seminar. I’ll be using Phil again.

Peter R. Lewis AM – Group CEO, Hydrix / Panorama Synergy – November 22, 2017

I cannot rate Bravo Charlie and Philip Bateman too highly. Given only limited notice and provided with scant notes, it took Philip only 2 weeks to develop a highly professional and polished corporate promotional video that captured the core of what our company is about. Thank you Philip !

Greg Brereton – AusCol / GrainCorp – July 11, 2017

How to Increase Stakeholder Engagement through Video Production to “Tell the Story” & “Gain Acceptance”?

We came to Philip Bateman and his team with short notice, a tight time frame and broad requirements, then used the videos created to summarise and sell the future of our business unit in a national roadshow. Clients and internal stake holders loved it and the program is ongoing; I’d highly recommend Bravo Charlie if you want serious engagement and acceptance for your initiatives.

Mackenzie Amara – Researcher and 5Rhythms Teacher – June 4, 2017

I worked with Philip on a rather massive crowd-funding campaign over the course of several weeks. Despite having a totally disjointed band of hooligans on the project (volunteers), Philip was able to streamline our process, offered amazingly useful organization and direction, and ultimately we reached our goal of $15,000.

Philip was tireless in his support for the project & was always full of helpful tips to keep us moving forward. He was professional, efficient, passionate, and knowledgeable. He clearly knows what he’s doing.

Sam Rosenberg – President, INPAX | Academy of Personal Protection – August 26, 2016

As a business owner, I could not recommend Philip and his team more highly.

Not only is Philip is a true master of his craft, he possesses the rare ability to teach his methods in a way that produces immediate results. Literally, within 90 minutes of our first meeting, he’d helped me define a simple, useable, and effective process for maximizing strategic communications with our existing clients, and for reaching new clients through social media.

His process made immediate sense and is light years beyond anything I’d been taught previously.

I intend to use Bravo Charlie and Philip on an ongoing basis – despite the fact we are located on different continents!

Lisa Rose – National Corporate Communications Manager at AIG Australia – June 6, 2016

Phil and the team at Bravo Charlie were fantastic to work with. We were extremely happy with the results of the employee videos he filmed and edited for us and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to anyone needing corporate videos created.

Angela Goodwin – Director of Share – March 2, 2016

I was really impressed by the video that Philip made for UnitingCare Werribee Support & Housing. It captured the work of the agency brilliantly and told their story in a very compelling way.

As fundraisers we do our best to engage the hearts and minds of people in our cause and videos like Philip’s are a very powerful tool for achieving this.

Vlado Baban – Business Analyst at the Geelong Manufacutring Council – December 8, 2015

The Geelong Manufacturing Council (GMC) engaged Bravo Charlie to develop a comprehensive bespoke package of video content designed to ‘message’ the GMC value proposition into our preferred target market(s) using digital channels.

The video concept, development and recording process was at all times a professional seamless experience and enabled the GMC to shift its ‘messaging’ into web based channels in order to engage with an increasingly digital (commercial) audience.

Sharon Dawson – Director at Dawsons Group of Companies – September 23, 2015

Philip jumped to it at very short notice to produce a suite of YouTube clips detailing our business processes and capturing the essence of Dawsons people, services and clients.

He has provided excellent “post sales” service since, ensuring that we get the maximum impact from being multi media stars.

Ravi Agarwal – MEDIQ Financial – Medical Accountant & Wealth Adviser – August 23, 2015

We engaged Philip and his team to help us create online video content to tell our story.

We are happy with the result and look forward to long-term relationship.

Patricia Griffiths – General Manager, International Trade at VECCI – August 5, 2015

Philip Bateman from Bravo Charlie produced a video for our VJBP Program. Philip is a bright young man with lots of innovative ideas and energy.

He made what appeared to be a very complicated process seem very simple and all we had to do was follow his instructions.

Philip is a people person and showed respect and professionalism in all his dealings with myself, my team and our clients.

He shared with us a lot of insights on how to present the program well and how to achieve the best results.

He definitely knows his business and does it extremely well.

We found his work substantially improved the market awareness of our product and has had a positive effect on our sales and marketing.

Philip is committed in his service delivery to clients and therefore is flexible in order to meet client requirements. I would recommend Philip to any company who wants to improve their marketing through video and social media.

Shane Dunstan | CEO, Aran Intertional | March 25, 2015

Philip is an enthusiastic, creative professional who can assess what a business needs very quickly and accurately. His ability to develop a business strategy through extracting the company “story” is as effective as it is fun. Philip’s skill of asking the right open, leading questions not only helps to convey the business to your clients, but also galvanises the business focus to the management team and staff.

Storytelling is a dying art. Philip instills a passion to tell a story and as a result, it give a business a sense of purpose and your clients a passion to follow.

Katherine McLennan | QBE – Head of Global Leadership Academy | November 3, 2014

Philip Bateman was a lot of fun to work with for the video that we created for the Leadership Academy at QBE. He is very organised and relaxed at the same time. He makes the people he films be at complete ease — and is very pragmatic with the suggestions he gives us for filming at the right budget with very high quality results.

I would happily be willing to support Philip in his endeavours for the future.

Brett Bonser | Executive Director – MathMarketing | August 4, 2014

Philip brings unique skills to the world of video production within the B2B context. He understands that in B2B marketing video has to be about more that just positioning and branding, it must play a role in buyer progression.

Combine this with awesome core video production skills and you have a guy that every Marketing Director should consider.

Deanne Love | Owner, HOOPLOVERS | March 19, 2014

Philip has an obvious talent for reviewing businesses and providing powerful and creative strategies for success. He recently conducted a gap analysis of my business and developed a workable and insightful strategy for the future. Philip’s clarity and vision is a great asset and I would highly recommend his service.

David Juriansz | Director, Moving Essence, Senior Facilitator, beyondblue, Editor, MHPOD | March 5, 2014

Philip at Bravo Charlie is a tech ‘boffin’. He understands how communication is changing, how viewable content is becoming a must-have platform as part of a business marketing system. His skills have been refined by countless hours learning his craft. He is a filmmaker with an eye for detail and creative vision. We works faster than a speeding bullet. I would recommend him if you are looking to integrate website, social media and film as part of a business solution.

Jonathan Osborne | Senior Acoustic and Audiovisual Consultant at Arup | March 2, 2014

Philip is assisting me with digital strategy and creating my online platform, leveraging my recent TED appearance. 

It’s rare to meet someone who has as wide a skill set as his, and still rarer to find a person like that who can listen. It’s been a pleasure to work with him and I would strongly recommend him to anyone looking to develop their digital or personal branding strategy. His assistance in navigation through the new online / social media landscape has been invaluable, and he’s helped me articulate some of my key drivers and translate them into an online presence.

Shanaka Unantenne | Director Product Quality & Engineering at Dara Switchboards | December 19, 2013

The videos and digital marketing we created with Bravo Charlie have improved our sales and perception in our target markets. Philip was recommended by Enterprise Connect and started by consulting to us on our processes and what we were seeking, then directed and filmed our senior management and staff over 4 days. He brought a team with him for the filming and we are very proud of the results. From this we made 18 videos and receive ongoing support – video works for our business.

Lauren Robertson | Owner at Larger Than Life Event Agency | February 20, 2013

We met Philip in 2012 whilst he was filming with a client of ours. Based on that event we asked him back to speak with us about video marketing. His initial consulting helped us to see the ways we could use social media to reach our business goals, whilst also writing a digital strategy to be implemented by our website provider. 

From here his team filmed a time lapse construction of our rooftop project, filmed the first half of the opening night, mixed the content together and worked with projectionists to show it live at the launch – we received excellent feedback. 

From setting up our YouTube channel to providing ongoing digital marketing support, Philip continues to film, edit and produce video content for our events. It works – capturing and sharing our story through social media and video is improving our sales.
