"As it so often happens, 'we didn’t know what we didn’t know'. With concerns about our technological direction we engaged an Independent Technology Consultant – Mark provided clarity for the business around which direction we should go with our technology and most importantly a plan for the future of our technology adoption that we could be confident in.

I’d recommend Mark to any business owner looking to walk out of the fog of technology confusion and into a place of comfort where you know technology is adding true value and productive outcomes, not just a drain on scarce time and money."
