Having had the privilege of collaborating with some amazing people, here are just some of their thoughts on how we have worked together.
"John is exceptional. He is passionate, entrepreneurial, supportive and pragmatic. I actually don't know what I would have done without his brilliant financial expertise and guidance over the past few months. John has empowered me to think innovatively about financial scale and sustainability.
John's excellent interpersonal skills had made him a brilliant mentor. After our conversations, I feel inspired and equipped with the knowledge I needed to move forward. I couldn't recommend John more highly! "
Becca Dean FRSA - CEO Literacy Hub and Co founder The Girls' Network
"John’s financial credentials are evident. However, it’s his entrepreneurial spirit and caring, common sense approach that makes him stand out from some other financial consultants.
I really enjoy working with John and recommend him as a financial expert, particularly to growing businesses who want a creative spark as well. "
Jackie Rainford - Executive coach
"Having worked with John over a number of years as the lawyer on several large transactions with him in Germany, he has demonstrated a highly professional approach in leading matrix teams of advisers and colleagues across several countries. His focused and pragmatic approach have also ensured that we have been able to successfully complete deals together.
I have really enjoyed working with John. As well as being very approachable, his interpersonal and diplomatic skills have been a key strength, enabling him to positively influence decision makers, conduct commercial negotiations and manage key stakeholder relationships. "
