DON’T JUST TAKE MY WORD FOR IT

Gary is not only extremely knowledgable and highly experienced, he manages to grasp exactly what the client is after and then apply it to perfection. He is a ‘can do’ person, when challenges or obstacles get in the way he is positive and pragmatic, finding solutions and keeping the project moving. As well as all of this he is an absolute pleasure to work with and I do not hesitate in recommending him.

Gary has the ability to create an effective digital strategy, which includes all expected elements, and deliver the project with little additional involvement and most importantly within budget and timescale. He has a deep understanding of the digital arena, a refreshing ability to simply and clearly communicate this knowledge on to clients and other project members alike, and an obvious skill in planning, organising and delivering the final solution.
