Testimonials

Glenn built the Surrey Hills Neighbourhood Centre’s new website which is a fully functional site with online event bookings and room calendars. Glenn listened carefully to our needs and delivered a product that was in line with our budget and then taught us how to maintain it. I recommend Glenn as a friendly, technically competent and experienced web designer and look forward to continuing to work with him.

Nic Maher

Executive Officer - EPA Victoria

Thank you so much ActionSkills for your patient, positive and thorough training and expertise! We were able to get SENVIC up and running within a few weeks and use the builder with ease. We feel well-equipped to manage our own website in the long term (with a little bit of help here and there!).

Maria McConkey

Communications Manager at SENVIC

Highly recommend ActionSkills for all digital campaigning, website building & training needs. A pleasure to create & make movements go with this team.

Felicity Ruby

ThoughtWorks Research and Policy Adviser, Office of the CTO

Glenn from ActionSkills is a reliable, creative and consistent professional. He has a great deal of experience in all things web design and has a really approachable and friendly demeanour. He answered all my questions, made great suggestions and despite working exclusively through emails and Skype helped create a wonderful product. I can’t recommend him enough.

Jo Szczepanska

Freelance Designer

ActionSkills has a natural understanding of client’s wants and needs. As a client you always know what you want as an overall finished product, but are less aware of the individual components required to reach that goal, or which areas should be areas of critical focus.

In this regard ActionSkills bought great clarity to our overall impact including ensuring our website was built with both traffic and functionality in mind.

His extensive industry knowledge built upon his own creative nature and design background guarantees a unique approach that cannot be easily replicated.

As clients we were delighted with the end result of our project and are extremely grateful for ActionSkill’s professional nature and transparent method of working and innate integrity.

Dan Atkins

Managing Director - Shaper Group

During Glenn’s three day WordPress training I went from not know the first thing about web design to having the confidence to build a website for our new cooperative cleaning business. The emphasis on strategy as well as the technical aspects was great, and is helping us build a website that won’t just look awesome, but be functional and user friendly too.

Glenn has a unique skill-set that covers all bases and makes working with him a pleasure – up-to-date technical knowledge, a passion for social media strategy, a commitment to training, and a strong design background. Combine this with his amazing patience, support and willingness to share knowledge and you have a service that is second-to-none.

As a small non-profit organisation, we needed a low-cost no-frills website on which to publish an educational resource. Glenn understood exactly what we needed and set about creating it. He worked above and beyond requirements particularly in negotiating with other IT professionals on our behalf. His patience with our shifting deadlines and changing requirements was stellar. Thanks to Glenn, we now have an excellent on-line resource that we know is contributing to improved circumstances for many in our community.

I have had the pleasure of working with Glenn Todd and Dvize numerous times, and highly recommend him both as a Trainer and Mentor in online services, as well as a strategic advisor in content creation, security and social media.

Glenn has been invaluable in providing leading edge and creative approaches to campaign work, coupled with practical online training, webpage design and social media training for MFC staff development. Glenn has been central to the most effective online work I have undertaken with Markets for Change, Conservation Council of WA and the Victorian Coal campaign.

Louise Morris

Campaigns Manager - Markets For Change

Glenn is a massive computer nerd and thats why he is an excellent person to learn wordpress or any computer related subject off. He offers in-depth insights into the virtual world and breathes life into what would otherwise be an incredibly boring subject. Thanks a lot Glenn for sharing your expertise and guiding us through the ins and outs of webdesign.
