David's knowledge of network funding and governance is vast and invaluable in all his projects. His presence and hard work on our board is an asset in driving INCA forwards. David's breadth of knowledge is only matched by his boundless energy, jolly nature and infectious enthusiasm. I am so proud to work next to David, and as a mentor he inspires me.
David is a professional of the highest standing with true in depth knowledge of the industry. Combined with his positive and outgoing disposition he is a joy to work with. David is also an excellent conference speaker with a sharp, incisive and clear delivery.
“I worked closely with Ian during his time as CEO of NPG, in particular when he was leading the reformation of procurement at North Yorkshire County Council. It was refreshing to work with someone in the public sector domain who understood the commercial aspects of procurement and was focused on outcomes rather than process. Ian's ready advice and pragmatic approach significantly helped Jacobs settle into their role at NYCC and contributed to the ongoing success Jacobs have since achieved.”
Consultants Malcolm Corbett and David Cullen were precious resources in terms of competence and knowledge of the broadband market and deployment projects in Europe and especially in the UK, but also in terms of relevant contact points across Europe. We will certainly take the opportunity to work again with them in the future.
Ian is a thoroughly professional procurement specialist whose work at NPG and within the RAF has been highly valued and successful leading to the expansion of his current role at NPG. He has provided his clients with an enviable service of which he is rightly proud. He would be and has been my first port of call for procurement issues.
Ian is as professional as he is personable. His wealth of knowledge and experience in 'Public Sector Procurement' has proved invaluable to Weeeco and Northern Compliance. I have no hesitation in recommending Ian as a professional who will deliver.
"Ian worked closely with Esh Group supporting us in a bid to a Local Authority where we had previously had limited success. As a result of feedback received from this process Ian provided further support to an Esh Group delegation who then met with the Authority to explore aspects of the bid and the bid process. As a consequence of the greater understanding this developed between Esh and the Authority we have subsequently been successful in a number of bid responses.
Ian’s depth of knowledge and understanding of local authority procedures and the Public Sector Procurement Regulations undoubtedly made a significant contribution to Esh making the breakthrough and establishing a healthy commercial relationship with this Local Authority. We know if we need advice on public sector procurement Ian is our first port of call."
