Invotra Consulting provided an excellent service. Clear information was provided on methodology and what would be provided as part of the service. Jamie and the team completed a detailed accessibility audit, including fixes for the issues identified.
Invotra Consulting Customer
I felt this went really well. Very well ring mastered as ever by the always charming Ryan, and energetically, enthusiastically and sympathetically managed at ground level by Keri who will no doubt prove a wonderful addition to the team.
Invotra Consulting Customer
Enjoyed the recent sessions. Loving the work that Keri is doing exploring the global impact of the requests and needs rather than them being laser focused on purely what our request is. I think there is a nice dynamic between Ryan, Keri and Tom for these calls and we have achieved a lot together.
