What our Customers Say
“WI was recommended to go to Debbie to help me out of a tight spot. I’d needed lots of transcribing doing at short notice and simply hadn’t had the time to get it done myself. Debbie calmly came in and rescued me. She was very thorough, precise and gave very clear direction. She explained upfront how she would approach the job and what to expect, while always remaining upfront about time and costs. In the end she delivered over and above expectation and turned what was a stressful situation in to a quickly done-and-dusted task."
“Thanks again for doing this so quickly - made my life so much easier!!!
Debbie is my new right-hand man/woman!
I can't recommend her enough for all those things you don't have time to do when running your own business - from help with admin to writing up important meeting and focus group notes. Debbie helped me bring all the notes together from focus groups in the UK ready for me to present to my global client in the US - just in time!"
Andrew Johnson Ltd – Charity consultant Burghfield Common

I had the pleasure of working with her for several years on projects. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her services.
Debbie is committed to quality and customer care and is extremely hard-working. She is values-driven with a super sense of humour. She is efficient, pragmatic, trustworthy, and has a broad range of knowledge and skills. Debbie will be an asset to anyone who is lucky enough to work with her."
