I'd like to take a moment to recognize Dawn's exceptional work on the server migration. She really came to the table with all she has and more and the results reflect her talents and perseverance.
Our timeline was pressed against an urgency to complete this in a timely manner and her impending overseas trips. She burned the midnight oil and made it happen in rapid fire succession.
She nor I went into this with the ideal amount of knowledge on several topics endemic to this new server environment, configuration, and platform. Undaunted, Dawn dug in and learned what she need on the fly and up against the aforementioned timelines. She made it work.
We didn't have external support from the SEO guys to call on as we might have hoped - not their expertise or within their scope of work - nonetheless Dawn overcame the challenges and as I've said, made it work.
I can't thank her enough for her vigilance and expertise that really - for me - made this possible.
If she & I were ever in a "pick teams" situation like this again. She'd be my first pick.

I have used Dawn Foster's company Mentat Consulting Pty Ltd
for a number of years. She has created two web sites for my businesses. (www.reengineerprofit.com
) There is much more to creating a web site than just the technical ability. To create an exceptional web site, a designer needs both technical ability and artistic ability. Dawn has both of these attributes in abundance. Her attention to detail in matching color and providing a pleasing appearance is exceptional. She takes my concepts and creates more than I expected. This makes our sites professional and appealing.
Dawn's technical expertise ensures that the functional parts of my web sites are embedded for easy use. There is a natural and intuitive ability to navigate the site. The site is not cluttered. It is easy to find all of the information and functions on the site.
Dawn also has an understanding of the art of making communication from the customer to our companies simple and powerful. When we get email responses, it is from the email address entered by the user. This allows us to directly reply to customers and potential customers. Since the email is created from forms designed to collect all of the needed information, nothing is left out of the communication. This feature gives us the best of both forms and direct email responses.
Dawn is one of a very few individuals that have both the technical ability and the artistic ability. Designers without both of these talents create web sites that are not of the professional quality of Dawn's.
Dawn also has one other quality that is very unusual. She completes project on time. Dawn has met every one of my deadlines even on very short notice.
Work with Dawn once and you will see why she is exceptional.

I have been working with Dawn Foster of Mentat Consulting Pty Ltd
for over two years, and have found her professional in all aspects of our dealings.
Dawn was able to take our poorly designed website, and create a customized site that correctly reflects the look and feel of our Business (www.citycentrebudgethotel.com.au
). She has added many extras that have made the site fun to browse, but also informative, so that the viewers can quickly and easily find what they are looking for.
In our line of business, it is imperative that our site be found on the Internet. Towards that end, together we have worked hard to analyse our site's wording so that our page rankings would improve, and for our targeted Key Words we are consistently appearing in the top 10 listings. Our booking rates have improved, and I attribute most of that to the fact that our listing is being found, that the viewers are interested enough to click through to our site, and impressed enough to follow through with booking our services
We get a lot of e-mails where people have remarked on how great the site looks, and then continued on to book a room.
Dawn is always quick to respond to my requests, and many times provides the extra creative touches that make the site more interesting.
I have found her to be pleasant to work with, and am looking forward to working with her in the future.

Dawn Foster from Mentat Consulting Pty Ltd
designed and created my website, www.naturalkitchenstrategies.com.au
over 2 years ago. She spent considerable time consulting and advising me on the set up and provided valuable insight for me as a relative newcomer to the Internet.
She has since continuously maintained my website, updating and making changes when necessary. I have had many people comment on my website, not only in its colourful presentation but also its ease of navigation.
Dawn, who has continued to provide me with invaluable advice and assistance, is an extremely easy person to work with and is unfailing in her commitment to her clients.

I would like to thank Mentat Consulting Pty Ltd
for their excellent service in producing our website
Dawn, was very honest and informative about what could be achieved when using both PC / Apple platforms (a mandatory for our company) and provided valuable suggestions on how the design concept could be 'optimised' for both platforms.
Importantly, Dawn's advice on web search engines (and preparation for) has led to new business.
The quality of concise information and advice was certainly a key factor in making the production of our website an enjoyable one and we are very pleased with the final result.
Thank you Dawn, I look forward to working with you again in the future.
With kind regards,

Thank you Dawn.
You certainly know your stuff. You assessed our web site with a very experienced technical eye and identified a number of critical areas for significant improvement for us.
The improvements you made have had a subtle, positive impact on our bottom line. What a wonderful passive sales tool a great web site can be!
If perception is everything, then our web site is representing us exactly as we want. It now looks polished and professional, is technically efficient and user friendly and is attracting exactly the type of clients we thrive on.
I appreciated your style of communication with me as a non-technical customer. Your demonstrations, summaries, proposals, and your patience with me when upgrading our web site was not my greatest priority, I am grateful for.
Had you not been direct, persistent, understanding of my time constraints and obliging, we may not have the quality of web site we do today.
Thanks again Dawn.
