Looking for an expert or for more information?
It’s important to seek help or assistance when you need it in certain areas. We cannot be experts in all areas (no matter how much we try) and below are a bunch of people and/or websites that can assist in a variety of areas, when we need advice, assistance, a service or when we need to be pointed in the right direction!
Below are a number of people that I consider to be experts and the best in their field – I would not hesitate in recommending any of these people if you’re looking for someone to quote on or assist in a particular area.
Please note that they are my personal recommendations for consideration, so no one has asked or paid to be mentioned, and please ensure that the service/person is the right fit for your business as we all have different thoughts, needs and requirements!
