COCODUST was represented by Nicole Murdoch exceptionally well. Although completely professional, I felt that Nicole was very personable with me and treated me as friend rather than a number.
Nicole went out of her way to understand our business and our business needs. Her advice was very sound and she was able to immediately ease all my concerns. She is one of the most intelligent individuals I have had the pleasure of getting to know and is truly exceptional in her field.
I feel very confident recommending Nicole as I know her high standards and quality advice will more than satisfy your needs.

Nicole can handle difficult counter-parties, and she herself has an easy-going personality. She has an excellent understanding of software and mining technology. I recommend her unreservedly.
