What people say

Michelle Musson

Michelle Musson

I have had the pleasure of working with The International Bunch for several years now, and the support they provide for our marketing team is invaluable. Helping us with everything from last-minute design deadlines to broader industry and thought-leadership projects, we consider The International Bunch as an extra member of the team.


I am continually grateful for their flexibility, responsiveness and the quality of work produced.

When approaching a new project that I’ve not undertaken previously, my go to is The International Bunch.


With their objective view and expertise built on work with numerous other publishers I receive excellent advice, ideas and support on how to approach tricky projects.


I’m extremely grateful for this resource and can recommend to other publishers!

Personas: The work that came out of the project was high quality, and highly relevant, and is now being implemented across the company.

USP workshop: Another engaging and fun workshop delivered by Lou Peck from The International Bunch for IOP Publishing colleagues from our author marketing and journals development teams!

Lou created a focused and tailored session drawing on her extensive experience in STM publishing and marketing. Plus she has a great selection of ice-breaker games!

Everyone on the project was very impressed with both the speed at which Lou and the team managed to turn this around and the quality of the work that was produced.


There is plenty of material to keep teams pouring over for quite some time.
