Mark Widdowson, Managing Director, Major Travel

Kirsti is highly motivated, highly organised and very capable of original creative design and project realisation. She brings a wealth of experience to the table and would be an asset to any organisation.

Being able to demonstrate a future vision for the organisation’s online proposition was certainly made easier with having her in the team.

She is happy and able to follow a brief ‘to the letter’ or produce ideas and concepts – whatever is required she will deliver. I would be happy to work with Kirsti again.

Adam Bailey, Software Programme Director, Cyberview Technology (2007 – 2008)

(…) she quickly built effective relationships with the wider group and through them gained a good understanding of what was required. Kirsi showed herself to be committed and consciencious and was willing to go the extra mile to get work done on time and to the required quality. She more than competetently fulfilled her contract with us (…)
