What Our Clients Say

Victoria Purcell 

Senior Production Coordinator | Zest4.TV

I had the pleasure of working directly with Daniel at RUSU. He made splitting up tasks between us very easy and is always willing to get stuck straight into the next project. He has shown great admin, project management, and events management skills. He also created artwork using Adobe Creative Cloud and used his photography skills to create an amazing front cover for our department booklet. I hope that my next colleagues are as fun and friendly as Dan has been to work with, whilst still remaining professional and getting the job done, as he always does exceptionally well.
