We want to work with the best, and that’s where we started. 

We reached out to [Building Trusts] to help guide us on the requirements for the Project & Retention Trust Account Framework. 

Laura was fantastic to work with, from concept right through to delivery of the requirements, and we continue to liaise with her to clarify specific items.

She proved to have an immense working knowledge of the framework and was able to present common workflows in a way everyone could understand from product managers right through to software developers.
