“Chris has been an excellent leader for our integration PMO. He is highly intelligent, fast paced and extremely insightful. Moreover, he has 2 particular skills that have helped our whole integration immensely. Firstly Chris has an excellent manner, being extremely calm and controlled in some very pressurised situations – his unique ability to remove tension from a situation without affecting pace, was a major factor in the team’s success. Secondly, Chris’s immense experience enabled his team to run a tight process, without becoming slaves to it – he added that real pragmatic and commercial overlay that makes the difference between a governance approach either being ignored, or depended upon…”
