His investigative and analytical skills are excellent! I would happily recommend him for any future tasks/assignments that come his way.”

“David Laycock is a detail-oriented professional who has helped my scientific & technical R&D group out many times efficiently, in a timely-fashion and with friendly and courteous service.
