He made a really positive impact on a number of the programme workstreams, where his qualities as a leader, knowledge of process and technical understanding of the TV space really helped drive the project teams and ensure they maintained focus and alignment.
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him in the future.
Steve Sadler – CTO Tunstall Healthcare : Dan brought much-needed structure, enthusiasm and good project process to a set of complex, software-based projects. His efforts were much appreciated, and I’m sure he will be in demand to apply his skills more widely.
Andy Nelson – VP Programmes and Engineering Pace : Daniel came into my team and provided key focus for all the test and validation activities at a critical phase of a very important programme.
He quickly assimilated the requirements, then very professionally and with skill managed both the entire testing programme and the customer interface for testing. His inputs had a major positive impact on the results, also his obvious capability gave the customer confidence in the test regime.
I can highly recommend Dan, I valued his technical contribution, and his continuous positive demeanour added real value to a hard working team.

Having met Dan a few times I know we will be keeping in touch and working together again on both sides of the fence.
