A client’s opinion:

Scott has been a great to work with. He has really brought value to the project. The team has been very appreciative of his wit and his skills.
We currently do not have an active project that requires Scott’s skills. As we get a little further into the year, that may change. If it does, we will definitely be in contact to bring Scott back if he is available.
It has been a pleasure to work with him and we hope to be able to do so again in the future.
