"Thank you so much for all of your hard work.  You have no idea how much you have helped me and the college, particularly in my new role.  You literally turned the ICT department inside out and I have learnt such a lot just by going through this project.  You are absolute star and I will definitely be in touch in the near future to get you back for some further work".​

Billy was recommended to me by a colleague to support the relaunch of my website.  This involved the design and implementation of an entirely new website. Billy’s attention to detail, professionalism and care were second to none.   What really stands out is how Billy builds a productive relationship as he builds the website to ensure my expectations as a customer were fully met.
