"I really, really like Darren's writing. He has an uncanny knack of getting to what the core message a business wants to convey is and then the ability to find the right words to say it in a simple, succinct, engaging way. His great work results from the combination a clear talent for writing with an industrious drive to really understand a brief and to research around a subject in order to make sure that the finished piece is not just accurate, but actually informed from a genuine understanding of what he is writing about.
I wouldn't hesitate to have Darren in my team again, and I'd certainly recommend him to any business that truly wants to take communications beyond the mundane and functional to the engaging and inspirational."
