Paul is a knowledgeable and respected veteran of the talent industry with a deep understanding of the dynamics of employer / executive relationships across a broad range of industries and situations. He is well-connected and knows a remarkable number of key players and influencers in the corporate, consulting and executive talent worlds. What impressed me most was Paul’s thoughtful, personalised advice and coaching, grounded in rich experience and a deep understanding of psychology and the criticality of interpersonal relationship-building in the C-suite. I trust and deeply value Paul’s solid, practical advice, always delivered in a personable style. He’s a great advisor and coach to have on your side, and a great ally to any executive seeking to take the right steps to a better career.

In Summary, I would say that it has been an extremely positive experience working with Paul. He has great expertise in this area which he has kindly shared willingly. He is a calming influence in the turbulent early period to provide reassurance and allowed me to have the confidence to go straight back into the market. Would highly recommend Paul for future assignments!

Working with Paul is always enjoyable since you can always find his insights in various subjects when we started our conversations. You can get different perspectives from his words of which you have not thought of before.
There is always no pressure unlike some other consultants you met before. The meetings are always conducted in a way that is helpful to the situation you are facing.
First of all, the “plan B” concept that Paul raised is inspiring. For a person who worked a corporate life for his entire career had never thought of plan B or plan C. We are always so deeply involved and devoted to the corporate life leaving us little time to even thought about other options. B and/or C plans can be some other things that you treasure in your life that will need time to cultivate. Paul is giving us a life consulting opportunity to pursue what we really want to do, esp. right after our corporate engagement when you felt confused with no plan nor direction on where to go or what to do next. His help is grateful not only giving you hints but also comfort your minds as life is much more than what we usually do within a corporate environment.
The assistance of getting a proper CV written and a review on what we have done and achieved is really helpful. The tools given to us on exploring/knowing what we actually want to do really help to shape the next action plan effectively for us.
Making the next career with what we are good at and what we are fond of is exciting to pursue. I had never thought of trying to pursue a part time career in golfing, a sport that I love, but that idea is striking to me. This is plan B that I will work on later.
The coaching that Paul had given to me is giving me a chance to look at life differently on top of just thinking about the working career. We could be able to develop much more options for ourselves which make life more colorful and enjoyable.
Thank you Paul for your help !
