        A big step forward in enabling the metrics around innovation. An area that has been hugely under explored. Innovation is the lifeblood of organisational growth yet often under done or not done at all.

        His technical acumen combined with his ability to garner my trust and commitment were commendable. What impressed me the most was his focus on relationships and the mutual respect he was able to develop with me and the rest of his team. It says a lot abut his character, and I learned a lot about leadership though our interaction.
