I gained a great deal from your research and the way you articulated your ideas. Your work and style has very neatly complemented the mix of theoretical, anecdotal and historical approaches, and for that I am very grateful indeed.

The case study he showed from a restaurant in South Africa was inspiring and informative and left me with several concrete ideas to apply to my own business, which is in a very different sector.

We all left buzzing with ideas on how to improve our businesses.” Paul is one of the speakers who was rated highly at the IPM 50th annual convention held at Sun City in October last year and has the ability to assist delegates identify critical issues that would help their organisations to sustain a competitive edge over their competitors.
