'Supporting environmental organizations in achieving their goals'

Testimonials

"Entrusting the polishing of major publications to external editors can be nerve-wracking. Will they understand the brief? Will they meet deadlines? Will I have to sweep up afterwards? With great relief, I discovered nerves of steel were not required to work with DJEnvironmental. In fact, in my 20-year career in communications, I have never had such peace of mind working with editors. Tim and Tim are professional and thorough. Their knowledge of scientific and environmental subject matter and terminology was a plus and helped instil confidence in my United Nations Environment Programme colleagues. Even better, they are fun. In short, their service is world-class and I cannot work with them again soon enough.”

"The European Office of WWF based in Brussels services a network of over 20 WWF offices across Europe with up-to-date policy advice and coordinated advocacy positions in the European national capitals. We have been fortunate to make use of the consultancy services provided by Tim Jones for more than ten years in various strategic and thematic planning projects which we have commissioned. Tim’s work for WWF has always been of the highest standard. It is characterized by first-class analytical skills in sometimes complex policy areas, excellent communications across linguistic and cultural borders, close attention to detail in reaching the right conclusions and excellent presentation and on-time delivery of results. I have no hesitation in recommending Tim Jones’ services to other prospective clients."

"DJEnvironmental, in the form of Tim Davis, has typeset the Devon Bird Report (c. 260 pages) and Devon Birds (2 x 48 pages) for the Devon Birdwatching & Preservation Society every year since 2006. During this time he has provided excellent service and also, because of his birding expertise, provided a sort of back-stop editing service, picking up mistakes and problems that have escaped the Editor's eye. He has also done an excellent job on the photos that have been submitted for publication."

 

Mike Lock

Editor, Devon Birds

 

"Tim Jones has supported the UNEP/Convention on Migratory Species of Wild Animals (CMS), as well as its specialized Agreement on the conservation of African-Eurasian Migratory Waterbirds (AEWA), as report writer at a number of meetings. In addition he has undertaken some work on substance, for example in respect of the development of the International Single Species Action Plan for the Lesser White-fronted Goose. It is not only a real pleasure to work with him but moreover the quality of his work is excellent."

 

Bert Lenten

Deputy Secretary-General, UNEP/Convention on Migratory Species

 

“After knowing Tim for a long time in different capacities, he, together with his company DJEnvironmental, provided me personally and WAZA with guidance throughout the process of defining our 10-year strategic plan. Keeping track and focus during multiple workshop discussions (and having fun at the same time), resulting in a good, clear guiding strategy document, has to be ascribed to Tim’s skills in the whole process.”

“I have worked with DJEnvironmental on two occasions to produce six short publications. The quality of their work is excellent and we are delighted with the finished products. Working with tight deadlines, DJEnvironmental proved to be adaptive, good natured, and meticulous in their work ethic. I very much look forward to working with them again.”

"I've had the pleasure of working with, and for a period alongside, Tim Jones over a period of nearly 25 years. This has been in my roles as a government official, then as his immediate supervisor at the Ramsar Convention Secretariat, and then subsequently as a consultant. In all my dealings with Tim the words that best describe him are professionalism and reliability. Tim is also a clear and concise communicator and genuine team player – someone who can take the lead with ease and get the job done."

“When we were looking to revamp our annual report, Somerset Birds, we chose

DJ Environmental to fulfil our design and typesetting needs. Five years on, we remain very pleased and impressed with the value for money we get and the quality of the work. Tim Davis is a pleasure to work with and the results have been consistently of a very high standard.”

 

Julian Thomas

Somerset Ornithological Society

 

“I work at the world headquarters of the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) in Switzerland. As several of my colleagues, I have worked with DJEnvironmental a good number of times in the last couple of years. Recently, I asked them to do the design and typesetting for a series of technical reports on the conservation of marine biodiversity associated with seamounts (underwater mountains). They did an amazing job – fast, accurate, very responsive, flexible and they displayed great professional skill, managing to make it easy for me! I strongly recommend them.”

"As a printer we rely heavily on the quality of the files supplied to display the quality of our print. We have worked closely with DJEnvironmental on countless projects over the last five or more years and on every occasion the end result has been something that we can all be proud of. Tim’s enthusiasm, knowledge and attention to detail make it so much easier for us to get the best result. When a new client requests samples of our work for review more often than not it’s a DJEnvironmental project that is swiftly despatched as we know they won’t fail to be impressed.’’

"Having just completed writing my book, A Birdwatching Guide to Brandenburg and Berlin, the final stage was to get the pages ready for printing, and I needed help with the design and layout of the text, photographs and maps. I was very pleased to have been recommended Tim Davis because I found his work to be excellent. Also he was very quick in returning the finished sections, and I particularly appreciated his suggestions and new ideas. His input was a major factor in resulting in some glowing reviews. I am planning another book and will certainly be seeking his expertise once more. I just hope he does not become too busy to help again!"

“As Director of the IUCN World Conservation Congresses in 2008 (Barcelona, Spain) and 2012 (Jeju, Republic of Korea), it was a major peace-of-mind to be able to rely on Tim Jones as our Chief Rapporteur. Not only were the Congress Proceedings produced on time, they were of an outstanding quality. Tim's attention to detail is exceptional and his organizational skills are a major asset to our organization.”

Global Director, Union Development Group, IUCN

 

"Finding a designer and a manager of the printing contract for the book we were producing on 40 years of marine conservation at Lundy was an easy task – I had already seen the efficient way that DJ Environmental had managed a variety of eye-catching and well-designed publications for the Lundy Field Society. Layout of the book included colour images on almost all of the 108 pages, so it was no small task to fit text and images together. The photographs were improved where necessary and a few changes suggested to make the text clearer. The result was an attractive and informative volume."

 

Keith Hiscock

Chairman, Lundy Field Society

 

"Dealing with Tim Davis on our book project has been a pleasure – always courteous, willing to do what's asked wherever possible, and often able to come up with useful, alternative suggestions in order to surmount tricky problems. I'd be happy to recommend DJEnvironmental to others seeking excellent book or leaflet design and layout skills."
