Some nice words from people we've worked with

I have had the privilege to work with Tristan and Fiona on coaching and mentorship for my startup. Because of their background and expertise in the marketplace space as well as in the specific field of photographers I found every conversation to to be extremely productive and effectual. And on top of that they are really warm and friendly people and I genuinely enjoy each and every conversation I have with them!.

My team love working on projects that Fiona is involved in as she has an excellent understanding of Sharetribe Flex and knows how to deliver clear requirements. She has made our development work much easier. Fiona is also great at helping the business owner turn their idea into a working marketplace.

Fiona came highly recommended from Journey Horizon. She exceeded all expectations with her organisation, skill, and delivery. Her flexibility to work with us as we iterated on design was very accommodating. Besides being a joy to work with, she impressed us with her design sensibilities and UX recommendations. For a startup launching an innovative platform, Fiona was the perfect partner.
