“Wyl delivered a project for the National Literacy Trust that supported the Aldridge Foundation schools to develop their reading for pleasure strategies. He did a fantastic job in supporting the staff to plan and deliver their approaches. I would absolutely recommend Wyl – his understanding of literacy and what works in a busy school is second to none!”
Julie Gibbings, National Literacy Trust
“We were in the middle of a very challenging project with extremely tight deadlines. With Wyl, we had an expert we could depend on to see us through in the right way. By this I mean no cutting of corners to meet deadlines, introducing tried and tested editorial processes and training, and at all times, maintaining the highest level of quality in our output.”
Rebecca Lee, Plymouth University
“Wyl is positive, enthusiastic and effective. He produces a high volume of excellent work and seems to work at twice the speed of the average person. He always gets the job done, on time and to budget, and overcomes any obstacles or challenges while managing to keep everybody happy. He’s an inspiring person, and comes away from each project with a group of new supporters. I’m a huge fan and would recommend him without hesitation.”
