I have had the fortunate opportunity to work with Mitchell Filby since early 2003 and more recently in 2011 as AMP engaged his business, First Rock Consulting to provide us with the first Australian independent Managed Print Services (MPS) benchmarking report. Mitchell’s and First Rock Consulting level of experience, intimate market and industry knowledge and professionalism exceeded our expectations and I certainly will not hesitate to use his company and their services again.
David Richter
Senior Commercial Manager at AMP
I have employed Mitchell and First Rock Consulting several times during my time at CSC and always found him to be extremely competent and knowledgeable. Mitchell is one of those rare consultants who are adept at theory, yet also bring a hands-on perspective. In this way Mitchell has consistently delivered value for money.
Peter Strohkorb
Solutions Business Development Executive
I would like to take this opportunity to recommend an outstanding business consultant Mitchell Filby. Mitchell completed a consulting job at Lifehouse in 2013 which has seen us streamline our printing processes and saved us significant dollars. With his knowledge and expertise gained from years in the print industry he was able to provide a unique insight and educate the IT staff about best practices, and organisational change.
