"We have had a long working relationship with Alex Murray and his team at Silverdart and we have always found them to be very professional and attentive. They have provided the Society with attractive and cost-effective solutions to our publishing requirements and have always delivered projects on time and to a high quality. We would have no hesitation in recommending them."

Michael Mitchell, former general manager, The Investor Relations Society

"Silverdart has produced many publications for us over several years - all to a very high standard and supported by a first class service."

Chris Jackson, former head of the Finance & Management Faculty, ICAEW

"This little book, produced by Silverdart on behalf of the United Benefice of Stratton, North Cerney, Baunton and Bagendon, is well illustrated and professionally produced. It's a model for others."


"Many thanks indeed for... your gorgeous anthology. What production values! And an attentiveness to detail and precision that's getting rarer and rarer. This is how poetry publishing ought to be managed: with thoroughness, accuracy and minimum fuss."

Mario Petrucci, poet

Managing difficult people

People can be difficult - yes, really! This cover article in Finance & Management, the monthly magazine of the ICAEW’s F&M faculty, asked the question: are you managing your team of varying personalities in the most effective way? The author Nancy Slessenger provided some tips. In the same issue, Stelios Haji-Ioannou, founder of easyJet, discusses the key skills of entrepreneurs.

Butterflies in Zanzibar

In 2008, Silverdart designed and produced four postcards for the Zanzibar Butterfly Centre, providing them with 500 copies of each as an aid to their fund-raising effort.  In a desperately poor country, the ZBC is a small independent project, which has created an excellent tourist attraction, while also having a great environmental benefit and providing sustainable development for the local community.

Leadership - an ICAEW report

The Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW) supports over 138,000 chartered accountants around the world. Silverdart produces the ICAEW Finance & Management Faculty’s quarterly ‘special report’, which examines a single topic in each issue. This report in December 2012 looked at the concept of leadership from various angles. Several of the authors supported the idea that, although some leaders are born, many more are made, and the appropriate training and support forms a vital part in this development.
