  • “We had a positive experience working with the team at Regency.  The value of creating a bespoke film, as told from people outside your own organisation, is that they add an objective credibility to your story.  We are not always good at telling people about what we do for the old adage of being seen as showing off, but equally we are proud of the people we work with and they were able to have a visibility and tell their own stories encapsulated within the larger picture. I would recommend Regency Foundation Networx as offering professional, caring and responsible work that adds real value to your company. It was also important to the film crew, if we wanted to get a particular message to our customers about our work, that they understood it and that they were able to show the evidence of what we were saying was true. I can only say that our experience of working with the team at Regency Foundation Networx was all positive.”

    Paige Earlam Head of Marketing, Plexus Cotton
  • “The process of working with Regency was smooth and transparent. I was truly impressed by the quality of their work. The team is reactive and very professional. Everything was run as planned. The team is very friendly. Working with them is like being a part of the Regency family. So, we, all together, were able to get a wonderful deliverable from this synergy. How do I feel about the end result? I simply love it!”

    Mouna Fouillade Africa Marketing and Communications Director, Ingenico Group
  • “It was a pleasure working with the dedicated team at Regency Foundation Networx on the It’s Africa’s Time television series. Not only do they understand the importance of mutually beneficial partnerships between an organisation and its communities, but they also took the time to learn about Teranga’s inclusive business model that drives our responsibility program. As a result, Regency produced a quality video that is both informative and charismatic. We were proud to share the much-acclaimed final product with all of our stakeholders and to a wider audience through Regency’s notable distribution channels in television, print and social media.”

    Caterina Ventrella Investor Relations Associate, Teranga Gold Corporation
  • “Thank you for the great outcome of the videos – they are inspiring, moving and beautiful. The ladies from the cooking bags in Ghana wrote to us that they were so touched seeing their project promoted and had tears in their eyes watching the films. This was such moving feedback. We hope to collaborate again in the future with you and the team of It’s Africa’s Time – it was great working with you.”

    Mareike Grytz Knowledge and Communications Manager, Inclusive Business Action Network
  • “Many thanks for this fantastic piece of work. We, and our partners, will make good use of this short story.”

    Joyce Maura Jose Sustainable Development Advisor, BP Angola
  • "Working with Regency was one of the best moves we made. They are a highly professional and undoubtedly passionate team with an eye for a great story. If anyone out there is looking for an inspiring partner to work with to get their messages out I would recommend Regency without hesitation."

    Ian Welle-Skitt Head of Communication, UBS Optimus Foundation
  • We’ve enjoyed working with the team from Regency. As much as they are focused on delivering quality work, from both the story and production standpoints, they have also brought their endurance and enthusiasm into the shooting process. On a personal level, it was wonderful getting to know them, learning about their experiences, and seeing their professionalism in the production and shooting processes. They’re an experienced team that truly respects the subjects of the story and they have a strong focus on learning more about the lives of the principle characters. By presenting our story through the children, who are everyone’s stakeholders, the story helped strengthen our company’s core values. Ultimately, we were very pleased that Regency was able to capture the story of the children so clearly and genuinely. If you are looking to present the human story, I would not hesitate to recommend Regency. Their values and mission to present stories on humanity, social development and justice are reflected in their work.

    Raja Asvanon at Sansiri Corporate Planning and Sustainability Development, Sansiri
  • Within our business we make a concerted effort to give back to all the communities that we operate in. As a company we aim to show that there are always mutually beneficial relationships and we never skip the opportunity to make a difference. This was clearly reflected in the stories and episodes produced for us by Regency. Working with Regency, especially the field team, was a huge pleasure and made us feel like we are part of this one big family. The entire process was smooth, clear and carried out hassle-free…and the stories and experiences that we shared will always have a special place in our hearts. We worked with Regency for two years in a row, which I believe shows our appreciation towards the end product that we received. Our first project together, filmed in Ghana, had so many unbelievable acclaims that we went back the second time. We would of course recommend Regency if promoting your business via short films is what you need.

    Asli Sürek Marketing Specialist, Commercial Operations, Karadeniz Holding


At Regency we have a rather unique value proposition. Whilst we produce impactful short films and invest in programs for community development and upliftment, this is only what we do. Being a force for positive change, at the core of it, is sincerely why we do it.
