I've exhibited at the first and second YorBusiness events in York and I was extremely impressed by the quality of leads who visited. John has done great work in spotting a niche in the market that value for money exhibiting and networking (without seminars and speakers) works. I look forward to continuing to support these events and would encourage delegates to attend as you have time to speak to exhibitors.

The YORBusiness event in York (21 April, Mercure Hotel) was a great success, in my view. It was extremely well organised by John - both for the exhibitors as well as business colleagues visiting the Business Fair. There was a great buzz and energy within the room, leading to fantastic networking taking place. With a friendly and enterprising feel, I would highly recommend attendance at any future YORBusiness events. Indeed, I'm booked on at the next Business Fair in Leeds on 10th June. So, see you there!!

I commissioned John and his company Orbis online Print & Creative to update my website which involved a complete redesign of the architecture & structure of the pages but maintaining my current brand profile. Plus incorporating video & audio podcasts playback with lots of images.

They delivered a fantastic product and a great service.

I was lost in a sea of web design consultants when a friend recommended John. From the first few minutes of talking to John I knew he was the right person for me. He is a very approachable person and not only listens to his clients but speaks in plain English rather than technical jargon. He kept me up dated with progress of my new logo and website, always made sure I was 100% happy before moving on to the next stage. I am delighted with the finished results which you can see for yourselves at www.whitelilyholistics.co.uk John knows his business inside and out and I have already recommended him to friends and colleagues. I intend to use John's company further in the near future.
