Working with Will and Proactive Talent was a great experience. The work that has come out of this is stellar and the work that will continue to come from this will be awesome. This was spot on and excellent work we could not have done this ourselves. Will is great to work with, everyone loved him and learned a lot from him. He is so willing to spend the time and is super passionate about sharing his knowledge. We will continue to engage Will and Proactive Talent as we build our Employment Brand at GoDaddy.
