WHAT PEOPLE SAY

My clients and colleagues say…

“Paul is a very experienced agile product development manager and a great guy to be around and to work with. He spurs his team on to try out new and different ways to solve problems, encouraging everyone to experiment and to learn. At the Innovation lab, he was concerned to find the most suitable blend of lean, agile and user-centred design to suit the product and development conditions. Paul showed me how to run a Google Design Sprint, pointed me to loads of great materials and tools and indulged me in many an hour reviewing our various experiments to figure out how we could be smarter. It is refreshing to work with a product manager who has such a strong drive to create products in an innovative way..”

Paul is a Product Guy. He never lets go of the most important factor; what the customer needs and has a scientific, not arty, approach to both understanding those needs and then start building stuff to satisfy them. He’s a true Agile thinker and practitioner and, because he can articulate the why’s and wherefore’s passionately and colourfully, is someone I consider a leader in this field. I wouldn’t hesitate to work with Paul again.”

“Paul is a very expert product guy, a great collaborator and a calming presence in the team. Paul really shines working on complex problems where there’s a policy intent or a social outcome to achieve. I thoroughly recommend working with him!”

“Paul is an incredible person to work with, apart from being very approachable and exceedingly knowledgeable about how products should be built. Constantly asking the question “what problem will this solve for our customers” and ensuring the value is achieved. He is genuine and has time for anyone as well as being an amazing coach in the practice of the agile.”

“Paul is professional, calm under pressure, helpful, insightful and an all-round great guy. He is a pleasure to work with and delivers significant value to the client in everything that he does. Paul’s sense of humour and his ability to apply agile and Product thinking to business problems is invaluable.”

“I was lucky to work with Paul for a few months when he was a part of an external delivery team working on great.gov.uk. It’s rare to find a combination of deep technical knowledge, product and delivery expertise, and marketing and analytics capabilities in one person, and we really benefited from the contribution that Paul made across these areas.”

“Paul is one of those rare creatures whose curiosity and passion for learning has driven him to an incredible headspace that unifies a number of major items, including Product, UX, Delivery. Coupled with his learned nature and both depth and breadth of experience, Paul sees the big picture clearer than most. He deeply understands the intersections of UX and Product and is able to work at both tactical and strategic levels. This ability, along with extensive coaching and consultancy experience, means he is amazing to work with and as an advisor. He’s the professional’s professional, or the consultant’s consultant. And he’s a wonderful human being with it all, no ego or barbs. Paul is most definitely a strong signal in a Digital world of noise, and I genuinely hope to work together again.”
