Our Story

Our beginnings

Complete Communication Ltd was formed in 2019 from the rebrand and merger of two long-standing specialist communication businesses. By bringing these two businesses together, we have doubled the knowledge and experience to ensure we provide our customers with the best service possible.

We aim to provide friendly, cost-effective communication, education and language specialist services for disabled, deaf people and the services which support them.

Complete Communication is based in Plymouth, Devon and owned by Daryl McMullan and Rhiannon Squance. Even though we are based in Devon, we work nationwide and have clients as far down as Penzance and as far up as Edinburgh.

Reviews

Sharon Saunders, Deaf Access and Inclusion Worker

“I have worked with Daryl within a variety of settings, including education setting for nearly five years. Daryl always delivered professional and highly skilled BSL/English interpretation.

He has also consistently provided high quality spoken English to match both my professional standing and to match the needs of the clients I work with (I have been told this by hearing clients and colleagues).

Lynn Elson, Community project lead, trustee, Charity Trustee

“I have worked with Daryl as part of our team and as BSL/English interpreter over 1 and half years and have consistently found him to be an important resource for expanding our Deaf Community Project at Plymouth Deaf Association with talented people.

He is tenacious and hard working to ensure our work is completed promptly and with a successful conclusion. Daryl is also a good communicator and keeps our team informed of the progress and he is always appreciated and praised for his work.”

Beverly George - Teacher of the Deaf, Acting Co-ordinator Hearing Support Centre

“I have known Daryl in both educational and religious settings and have found him to be utterly professional, sensitive to the needs of the client and setting, whilst ensuring their needs are met and communication is naturally facilitated.

He has outstanding BSL skills and extensive experience of working with a variety of education professionals.

Ruby Starheart, Exeter Royal Academy for the Deaf

“Daryl helped us out at the last minute for our Open Day to interpret both for staff and students. He was very professional, co-interpreting alongside a second interpreter and ensuring that formal and informal communications were well attended to.

Daryl is friendly and was happy to help out wherever needed on a busy day. Daryl did a brilliant job and I would definitely recommend him. Thank you, Daryl.”

Mandy Barrett, Communication Support Worker

“Consummate professional and an absolute pleasure to work with. Skilled at working with challenging clients, providing humour when needed and excellent cake baking skills. Highly recommend working with Daryl! I would have no hesitation in recommending Mr McMullan.”

Laura Denning, Artist and researcher

“Without a doubt YOU (Daryl) are a major reason why last night went so well! I can’t thank you enough – you put us all, me included, at our ease, and your management of the rehearsal (in easy bites) was perfect. I learned so much as well, above and beyond the signing of the poem. I have already had feedback for choir members eager to sign your praises…… “

Caroline Page, Sensory Solutions Manager

“We regularly work with Daryl for our interpreting needs and find him extremely professional. He is always really quick to respond to booking enquiries and willing to discuss and accommodate our requirements. At events he is always friendly and approachable which helps ensure our events are a success”

Claire Nannelli, Higher Education Student

“I first met Daryl as he was the interpreter for my college interviews and he also was my interpreter for my course that started in November 2014. I find Daryl to be a very professional interpreter.

He also always make sure my course going smoothly and has given me lots of confident to do my coursework. I am also pleased with his signing, as it is very clear and also he very deaf aware”

Stephanie Aindow, Freelance BSL/English Interpreter

“I’ve worked with Daryl in a range of settings, from big top tents to a climbing wall! As an interpreter, no matter what the situation he remains calm, collected and highly skilled.

As a co-worker he offers reliability, support and most of all a great work ethic. Always a pleasure to be around”

Amanda Gilbert, Freelance Illustrator

“Daryl supported me whilst I was completing my BA Illustration degree. In this time I have not only seen the development of Daryl’s signing ability to become a competent signer within the higher education sector but also been impressed with his professionalism and ability to ensure that the needs of the student and the course are being met.

Darren Valentine, Chairman of Charity Trustee

“Daryl has worked with both myself and Blake Lodge (Plymouth Deaf Association) for the last two years as both a Communication Support Worker (BSL) and BSL/English interpreter.

He has worked and interpreted in a variety of settings, such as staff training, general meetings, AGM’s, as well as providing office support with reference to phone calls, document translation, etc.

Khalid Ashraf, Onscreen Presenter at ITV

“Daryl has always shown quality, enthusiasm, patience, friendliness and professionalism within his interpreting work, which are the reasons why I chose him to provide BSL/English Interpreting support. He is one of the rare breeds of interpreters who are easy to work with.

I would definitely recommend working with him since he has shown a strong passion to interpret which was demonstrated during our summer festival in July – August.”
