“Gregg draws out the very best in people, and reminds us of our most important qualities, we are ‘people’ persons. I plan to use Gregg for my advertising needs now and in the future. Gregg is key to my success.”
Molly Bentley, ReMax Twin City Realty, Brantford
“We chose WorkCabin Communications to design a website for our annual Green Expo trade show and were thrilled with the results. Gregg was in constant contact with us from conception to completion, giving us daily updates and ensuring we got the website we were looking for. Any questions we had were promptly answered both during the initial design process and after the site went live. Working with WorkCabin Communications on this project was truly a great experience and we definitely recommend them!”
