I had the pleasure of nearly working with John but as such, did see his work at close hand. The thing that strikes you about him is that he is not just an 'ideas man'; we all have moments of inspiration from time to time (don't we??) but John clearly has the ability to see things through to fruition i.e. taking a good idea and making it happen. I am convinced that John will finish up being hugely successful and my only regret is that it is unlikely to be me or my company that will benefit!

Project & Business Process Management, Sourcing/Outsourcing, Logistics, Contract Management and Stakeholder Management;

I had the pleasure of working with John when he was working at Barmy Army England as a client of Virgin Blue Airlines. John, in his role, was responsible for the arrangement and movement of over 1500 guests around Australia as supporters of the Ashes Cricket tour. I found John to be highly organized, very professional, detailed and very personable. John handled the myriad of issues, including international communications and finance related issues, very well. From an customer perspective, the tour was conducted without any operational issues due to the detailed logistical preparedness of John. Also, the tour was conducted with general good cheer.”

"With culturally different management styles across our three offices - London, Mumbai and Colombo, we needed a simplified yet robust business and operating style that made the staff accountable and working towards a common goal. Although it took longer than we expected, John delivered to us what we wanted. We could not be much happier with the outcome. I recommend John to any organization wanting a hands-on experienced business operations manager"

Legion Telecom International

Industry: Media / Telecoms

Consultative Business Development, Project & Risk Management, Due-diligence, Stakeholder Management and Contract Management;

John's brief was to assist our entry into the Australian market, firstly by conducting a thorough evaluation of the media and legal regulations relating to premium rate 'phone services' and then secondly, to assist in the securing of a joint venture partner. Initially, with only limited knowledge of the audiotext industry, John was quick to understand the business objective of Legion and work within the brief for the successful outcome. I can highly recommend John to any organization wanting to establish a presence in Australia".

With these two factors progressing, we appreciate all your efforts in assisting this process.”

Thanks to John’s efforts, from my perspective the tour was a success

"As purchasing manager and special projects manager, John was a key member of the senior management team at Bowin Designs. John's keen commercial sense and tenacity enabled the company to simplify production and reduce lead time from 14 days to next day delivery. John also played a vital role in contract negotiations, securing all key components for the Australia Design Award winning LO-NOx Gas Burner and ensuring Bowin’s ISO 9000 compliance certification. I wish John all the best in his pursuit of excellence as an independent business advisor
