John was a member of a team of consultants I led supporting a voluntary sector client to grow their income and improve their infrastructure. John led on use of IT and did a thorough and sensitive job for the client, ensuring the results were practical and realistic. He really knows his stuff and did not confine his role to IT, making valuable contributions across the project. I have no hesitation recommending him and hope we will work together again soon.

Business Consultant

John made an excellent appearance as a guest speaker on my MSc in Project Management at Royal Holloway, University of London. I asked him to talk about the importance of the sponsor in projects and John was able to expertly draw on his recent real life examples to bring the subject alive for the students. His talk prompted many questions and debate among the students who later provided very positive feedback to me. I will be inviting him back next year.
