Health and Wholefood
Helen Kennefick - Director
"Being very time pressured it is essential for me to be able to hand over confidential tasks with trust and confidence. Ann's ability to understand what is needed from the tasks and projects I have given her has impressed me. She is able to grasp the concept of what is needed from brief discussions and implement this efficiently, independently and confidentially.
I would whole heartedly recommend AGS and will continue to use and recommend her services in the future."
Alison Hercock - Director
Ann has undertaken two projects for me, database cleansing and marketing of a new client product. I only need to give her one briefing and she is able to complete the tasks confidently without any further guidance. She has a very pleasant phone manner and undertakes all tasks in line with my company style and requirements.
I will have no hesitation to recommend AGS and will be using her services for future projects
