“Having had the privilege of working on this process with the NAB Radio team on this tender, I would also like to commend and comment on the EXCELLENT work of Zahn and Toni of YARDSTICK. Their construction, management and facilitation of this entire process was truly remarkable and in my view of the highest standards – we certainly would not have been able to do this without them.”

“Thank you for the thought you put into the penalty framework. It makes perfect sense.

Toni, it was an absolute pleasure being part of the contract team under your guidance. The professionalism and speed with which this process has been finalised is amazing.

Marié Rossouw

“Once again we really valued the service provided by Yardstick to ensure that the digital pitch process met the required compliance guidelines as set out by the ASA. The process was seamless, managed efficiently and professionally, and overall we were extremely satisfied with the outcome.”

“Working with Johan and his team is always a great pleasure. Not only are they highly efficient at what they do, but their due diligence and industry know-how is second to none. They have also managed one of the most difficult things to do in business and that is to be big enough to carry  considerable gravitas in the industry but also small enough to make their clients feel really special. I would recommend them if you are in the market for some fresh thinking and rigour in terms of an agency appointment.”

Sumayya Davenhill

“The best investment we made in our pitch process was to bring Yardstick on board, they understood our requirements and needs as a customer. They were able to provide the right advice and process to manage the agency pitch, which ensured that we are suitably matched with the right agency. This has been the best pitch process in my marketing career, and all credit goes to Yardstick.”
