He has excellent technical leadership skills, is able to lead project teams to achieve great results without getting his fingers into the engineering discipline’s gearboxes. He is also very proficient at developing and implementing world class project execution and management systems. He is a pleasure to work with as an engineer as he understands the engineering work, but does not interfere with it. He is enthusiastic, hard working and very ethical…

I know David as a project manager working from South Africa. David is using and used in our particular project his personal talents to motivate skilled individuals helping them to get the best of themselves. This is a natural for David! In our project David and his team have achieved many ‘firsts’ forming a potential basis for other projects and benefits to all parties involved. The project was completed successfully, with a success story being published. It is my pleasure to know David both as a person and as a professional project manager. Anytime again in the future David.
