Testimonials #

Thank you very much for the Low-level Design Document, all in all an excellent document with very well collated requirements.
— The Royal Household

I just wanted to pass on my thanks for the work on AutoPilot that Nick Benton did with us. Nick’s expertise and passion for the subject area really shone through, and so the work he delivered is absolutely top quality. Not only that, he was great at explaining to me exactly what he was doing, why he was doing it, and how everything works and links together so I’m in a really good position to manage this going forward. I learned a lot!
— West Yorkshire Fire

Thank you Nick…Possibly the most helpful training session we’ve had since your last one!
— Cambridge Enterprise

I wanted to express my heartfelt thanks for the excellent work completed by Nick. I found him very knowledgeable, professional and overall a great guy to work alongside with. He delivered high quality work even whilst working around (and highlighting) a number of issues related to our network setup …. Its always nice to watch someone good at their work, who shows good emotional intelligence and wants the best for all.
— Epping Forest District Council

I’d like to pass my very positive feedback on all the engagement team members to date, but note in particular the positive feedback I’ve had from my team members on the time / session pieces spent with Nick Benton, who has really shone in his instant understanding of any aspect the team has put to him. My team are keen to get him on time retainer to have an MOT from Nick every 6 months or so, so positive their time with him.

Excellent work from Nick. Clear comms every day and solutions provided where the project differed from initial expectations. Very helpful approach and happy to teach me parts of the process. Wouldn’t hesitate to use such services again.

Nick Benton is bloody fantastic! I haven’t learned so much useful information since I left school, and that was a very very long time ago. He has a really nice manner, and is a brilliant trainer! Thank you for organising this. Far more useful than I could possibly put into words.
— Cambridge Enterprise

Just some feedback to share from my side as well, Nick was absolutely fantastic on that call we had on Friday! Really good engagement with every member of the team that was on the call and handled every question brilliantly! It was clear he really knew his stuff and I’m sure that level of expertise will have positioned us well for further works with this customer on this project.
