I have long been a fan of the Client Choice Awards and the many benefits the Awards process and resulting feedback provide to the clients of professional services firms and to the firms themselves. When I heard that beaton, with the support of Consult Australia, is now bringing these Awards to firms of all sizes in all built environment professions, I immediately entered our firm, Integral Group Consulting Engineers.
Not only do we hope to reach the finals and win, more importantly we look forward to receiving the high calibre client feedback reports that beaton will be producing for all firms that enter.Andrew Mather
