Working Off Site

"...The slide show you created for us was the most professional presentation at the conference." Also "I received lots of good comments from people on the appearance and organization of the poster at the ASM conference!!"
Ken Godowski, Atrix Laboratories

"...The Quality Assurance Manual you wrote for us really sets us apart from the competition. We knew we always put out a great product, but you documented how we did it. One of our major clients was working toward getting ISO certified and Iím sure this manual was a big factor in their awarding us another yearís contract."
