Here’s what some of them had to say:

“We were deeply impressed by and immensely grateful for the thoughtfulness and insightfulness of WR&C’s analysis. Their report engaged a huge amount of data critically and rigorously and got straight to the significant issues, and their recommendations provided some really helpful expert external guidance to help us move forward.”

“Peter’s report was clear, incisive and practical and was exactly what I wanted. It was written at the right level for sharing with key stakeholders and included well-reasoned, actionable recommendations.”

“Peter’s acuity, expertise and tailored IT research offered a solution to what had previously seemed intractable technical difficulties. He is a consummate professional, with excellent interpersonal skills and longstanding experience in communicating across varying levels of digital literacy. I cannot recommend him highly enough. [Honorary Secretary, Royal Historical Society]

“Peter has worked in close collaboration with the academic investigators at every stage, taking full responsibility for the technical aspects and providing clear guidance to the non-specialist. As an historian himself, Peter also understands the intellectual challenges of academic research. This rare combination of skills well equips him to manage projects of a complex kind, especially those in the digital humanities.”

“Peter’s research and ultimate report was very thorough indeed with feedback from a good number of stakeholders.  That in itself is hard to achieve.  He takes time to understand the context in which the work is being carried out and plans meticulously before commencing work.  His final report looks at matters from a number of perspectives; we liked the way in which he offered several options for solution depending on funds available.  Not only is this important for public sector bodies but it illustrates Peter’s maturity and understanding of the sector.   And on top of all that – he’s a nice guy.”

“Peter produced valuable and insightful analysis of multiple datasets and a complex conceptual issue for us on very short timescales. He picked up what we needed very quickly and was helpfully flexible in how the output of the work could be presented. It was a pleasant, and refreshingly straightforward, experience working with him.”

“Peter’s input as a consultant when developing our course was invaluable. His clear vision and professional experience helped us shape a programme that was both interesting and practical for our delegates. As a tutor on the course itself, he communicated his extensive knowledge of the subjects he covered for us in an engaging and dynamic way. His experience as both a researcher who uses content archived from the web, and his years of working on archiving the web gave a unique and invaluable perspective to his sessions. He was a fantastic addition to our training team, and we are very keen to work with him again.”
