Most recently, we have collaborated on a project to create tender documents to best support schools covering two continents.

“Derrick initially helped us through the tender and selection process for new printer/copier devices and contract. He brings immense experience to help navigate the minefield of copier suppliers and contracts and this resulted in an excellent school provision.
