In their words

A few comments about me and my work

Julian Goode

Head of New Media at England and Wales Cricket Board

"Always found Chris great to work with, both in managing complex parts of our account, and in terms of ongoing reporting and feedback. Not afraid to flag up issues and put his hand up to any problem. But I largely found he got things done, with as little fuss as possible!"

Neil Tootell

Associate Technical Director at Radley Yeldar

"Chris is a fantastic man to have on your team. He's process orientated with a good understanding of tech. I've worked with him for well over a year now and he's motivated and well regarded by our team, he's fun to work with and charming with clients. I think his strongest attributes are operations in the digital arena, aiding both tech and project management teams to create great work on-brief and on-time."

Lesley Allan

Operations Director at Upside Energy

"I worked with Chris at RY (and had also employed him at the Other Media) and have always found him to be a true professional. Chris is always in constant pursuit of best practice and new ways of working, and the quality and rigor he put around around the QA processes within RY was incredible. He is also a pleasure to work with – hard working, conscientious and professional, with a keen sense of humour that makes any project you work with him on very enjoyable!"
