The danger in spelling out one's strengths & competencies is that you constantly feel you are overdoing it and would rather be modest. In an attempt to overcome this dilemma, we have tried to be very specific and detailed. Most of what we've spelled out here, we can substantiate by showing to you the work that we have done. (A lot of it is already on our website and we are constantly adding more). If we have tended to be little aspirational in few places - that is purely out our self belief that we can do it :-))
Also certain terms are hyperlinked to offer you more details.
