Consultancy and professional values

“Mark brings energy and focus to his work.  He is proactive, cogent, well organised and an effective change agent.”    Brian Durrant, Chief Executive, London Grid for Learning Trust

“Mark is an excellent ICT adviser: well informed, very experienced, pragmatic, realistic, sensitive to the contexts and people he meets. Having worked at a strategic scale, both regionally and nationally, I found him to have an excellent grasp of the issues that impact on schools and Local Authorities. I have no hesitation in recommending Mark to you.”     Helen Warner, Head of ICT Support Services to Schools, Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea

“Mark supported us in setting up and managing a ‘Visioning Day’ which involved the LA Strategic ICT group. Without his initial input, this day would not have taken place as we had not given such a day consideration. Mark organised all the delivery…The day was very well organised and well managed and consequently everyone got a great deal out of it.

Mark…is a good facilitator and is able to impart his considerable knowledge in an unpretentious and supportive manner for those of us who are not into ‘ICT speak’. He is also efficient at following things up and offering further support and advice, which has been much appreciated.”    Elaine England, Lead Inspector, London Borough of Richmond Upon Thames

“Mark was a real pleasure to work with…it became clear that Mark’s pedagogical approach and understanding of a school’s needs…meant he never lost sight of the strategic objective. His in-depth knowledge of the education sector and professionalism made Mark a useful person to consult with. I look forward to working with him again.” Sajid Rafiq, Business Development Manager, Fronter UK Ltd

“Mark is well qualified, very able, and has wide experience of both educational and commercial contexts, together with excellent interpersonal skills.  He is conscientious and thoughtful, able to see both the big picture and having a good eye for detail. I found him to be very supportive of and sensitive to the needs of others; and in possession of a very good sense of humour… Mark is cooperative, reliable and dependable.

As an example of this…I was engaged by a secondary school as an interim Head of ICT to help them through a short-term crisis. In this role, I found myself working occasionally with Mark in his capacity as ICT Adviser. It was clear that Mark was held in high regard by teachers in the school; and he proved himself to be a valued and supportive adviser during a period of turmoil for the school which, with Mark’s help, was managed to a successful outcome.”    Andy Hutt, Director, Learning Potential Ltd
