Having worked across a number of business sectors I have gained a huge amount of experience with managing projects and client expectations. With experience within the manufacturing, logistics, automotive, agency, retail and travel sectors - I have the skills needed to identify the project components and resources required, helping you put together all the pieces you need to create a truely exceptional system.
Delivery and long term support
By ensuring we have a development plan right from the start, I will provide complete specifications, timelines and milestones for every project we plan, ensuring that everyone knows what to expect and that each project can be evaluated for quality.
