“We have been working with Minazi for 6 months now and are delighted with all that we have achieved together. They are highly organised and efficient, they have listened carefully to be brief and been very reactive to the changes that evolved as the project moved forwards. The level of research from within the team is staggering and the fact that they are sharing their wealth of knowledge with us is breathtaking. Small charities like ours are often Jack of all trade establishments and working with masters in a specific area is like finding a treasure trove.”
