“Having worked for a wide variety of clients, I particularly enjoy dealing with SMEs as often it involves dealing with people to whom the matter is more than just their job, but rather their livelihood and passion. I enjoy building relationships with businesses in order to understand their needs and provide clear, jargon free advice that is tailored to their specific commercial needs.”
