Testimonials

VANCOUVER COASTAL HEALTH - Linda Feng
Hi Richard, I just wanted to thank you for all your patience, speed, and fabulous work on the website. It has been great working with you and likely will be working with you again in the future at our next symposium.
Many thanks,
Linda - Vancouver Coastal Health

FIRST UNITED CHURCH MISSION - The Reverend Rose~Hannah Gaskin
I have worked with Richard Hersley over the past nine months in the process of producing a DVD describing our work at First United Church Mission. I found Richard to be patient, perceptive and enthusiastic. He was very good at helping me understand the process of translating the reality of our ministry first into conversation and eventually into the medium of a DVD. I particularly appreciated his easy manner of keeping the project on track in terms of a time frame we had agreed upon. He is approachable, has great communication skills and is good with a diverse group of people. He is able to put those on camera at ease and empower them to speak their views in an atmosphere of support. It has been a privilege to work with Richard and I would certainly do so again if the opportunity presented itself.
Sincerely,
Rose~Hannah Gaskin - First United Church

DALTON WATSON FINE BOOKS
Just started to look at it (the website). Congratulations! No author has come close to presenting anything as effective as this for advance information and publicity. A breakthrough. I always think the publicity information should be developed and written before the book is written and printed so that the author is writing to a considered position. Glyn / Narita
