Working with BabelQuest has been a great experience so far. Working with Lily during the presale run up and onboarding phase was great. Clear expectations were set as to pricing, timelines and deliverables and the approach was professional throughout.

The team at BabelQuest were excellent to work with from start to finish. They took the time to understand our needs, helped shape a vision for our new site in line with our budget and nailed the brief. Big thanks to Lily, Vaughn, Laura, Abi and Justyna!

Josh Lowth

Lily and the team at Babel Quest carried out an in-depth audit of our HubSpot platform and we begun implementing some of their suggestions already. The service was straight-forward and Lily was a pleasure working with. Would definitely recommend.

Oisin Fahim

Marketing Manager, Hawk Training

The initial sales process with Lily, Hannah and Eric has been professional, structured, clear and efficient. Lily really went above and beyond throughout; even reaching out to key members of our team to give advice on some things she'd been doing that she thought would work well for us.

Ben Simpson

Director, MyWorkwear

Project managing a six-month-long RFP and supplier selection process was made utterly enjoyable thanks to Lily Bristow and her colleagues at BabelQuest! What more can I say really... Lily herself is there to help, not to sell. She understands when to help and when to let you breath, digest, and take it all in. She's super positive and her enthusiasm for HubSpot is, quite frankly, infectious. Supporting Lily is a team of blue-sky-thinkers, with...

Digital Marketing Manager, AJW Group

I have been looking for a HubSpot partner to assist us to complete the sales and marketing implementation that we started some time ago. Discussing the project with Lily it was evident that our principles were aligned so we decided to proceed with BabelQuest. We are at the beginning of the journey, but I feel confident that the BabelQuest team will help us deliver this project through to completion.

Second time working with BabelQuest now. Their expertise and support were great the first time around so I reached out when I moved company and we needed help get HubSpot running smoothly. Lily made the pre-sales process quick, clear and painless.

At the beginning of our HubSpot Journey but have a had a great experience with BabelQuest to-date. Lily couldn't have been more patient and helpful - de-mystifying the different HubSpot platforms and services so that we have the right package for our business moving forward. We look forward to working with BabelQuest through the on-boarding and training process.

They are incredibly responsive to any questions or queries we have and it's clear they...

Libby Jones

Marketing Executive, The Cabling Company

Making the move from Goldmine to HubSpot, on functionality seemed like a no-brainer. But on cost, was a big decision to make. We knew the key to success was a successful implementation and onboarding process and we had a LOT of questions, and didn't really know where to start. Lily gave us the confidence to make the leap and has made us more sure than ever that making the move, in partnership with Babelquest, was the right decision for our...

Young, M

Lily worked very hard to establish a deal that enable us to move forward and implement HubSpot. This wasn't just within Babel Quest but also with HubSpot to get a 3 year fixed price deal on our Sales Hub Licenses.
