Mark worked for me as a test analyst on a systems implementation project. Right from the start he impressed me. He familiarised himself with the system and grasped the client’s issues remarkably quickly, and was therefore able to add value almost immediately. He is very affable, and easy to work with. He ably demonstrated all of the attributes I would expect of a first rate test analyst, and more besides. He listened, understood what was being asked of him, and delivered efficiently and consistently. His communication skills are very good. Mark challenged the approach and offered advice if he felt it appropriate, and did so in a very constructive manner. He was pragmatic throughout the engagement, and took on tasks outside of his formal remit to help the project deliver on time. For instance he updated the User Guide, and drafted communications to support the releases. In summary, Mark’s contribution to the project was excellent, and I have no hesitation in recommending him.
I have worked with Mark in a number of different situations over several years and have always found him to be have a strong commercial bias with a delivery focus. He is a great asset to any team.
Mark is a very thorough, competent analyst who understands how to apply technology to business needs remarkably well. His Prince2 certification serves to back up his many years of project management experience. He is both calm and cool under pressure making him the ideal project manager for complex businesses with strong I.T driven projects.
Having worked with Mark in a number of high pressure environments his ability to keep cool under fire and communicate effectively to all level of internal and external stakeholder is something that stood out. I would gladly recommend Mark for any form of PM/BA work as his skills in both are outstanding.
Mark is a highly motivated individual who is committed to performing in whatever role/task he is asked to undertake. As part of the Test team with myself, his professionalism, attittude and adaptability in what was a very challenging environment, made it a pleasure to work with him. I would have no hesitation either working with or recommending Mark in the future.
Mark is a clear thinker, he is able to identify and resolve complex problems with ease. He works with the best interest of the customer at each stage and can mobilise a team to ensure the delivered solution meets all expectations. I would especially recommend Mark if you need a person to deliver that ground breaking difficult project you need to on time and to budget.
I have worked with Mark several times over the last few years. On the most recent programme, I turned to Mark not because of his knowledge of the subject area (PCI) but because I was 100% confident that he would quickly gain an understanding of the key requirements and then design efficient and effective solutions that could be adopted by the organisation to meet these requirements. Mark works well as part of a team and yet can be relied on to deliver on his own. He has added real value to the organisation across a variety of projects and programmes and I expect to work with him again at some point in the future.
