"Joe was an inspiration to work with, injecting passion and finesse to an incredibly high standard in all the projects I had the pleasure of working on with him. I've trusted Joe on a number of high profile Google projects in the past and he has never failed to deliver, always finding that perfect line or the best way to phrase something complicated in a clear and simple way. Being immensely creative, he drives concepts to the best they can be, is a great presenter and excels at being a motivational voice within the team. I'm sad to no longer be working with Joe but I'm confident he will always have a successful future."

"When you want the right man for the job there's only one way to find him - Headhunt him. That's exactly what I did when I hired Joe as Copywriter. Hand picked from a bunch of the best creatives at top agencies, I knew I'd found my man when Joe miraculously ticked all the right boxes. An intelligent, articulate and well considered creative, Joe has the ability to apply his talents to any project with ease. To top it all Joe is also the best team player I know. Wherever he goes, he'll go on to do great things and make great work and friends along the way."
