All outputs were to a high quality and he consistently displayed great proactive skills to get the job done irrespective of the technical challenge.

Simon Pass - Managing Director

Graham is one of the most experienced, professional and accomplished QA practitioners, that I have ever worked with. For the major work-streams at LeasePlan, Graham could be trusted to understand the brief, create the plans, standards, activities and deliverables, and manage this, to just make it look very simple, when it reality, it definitely is not! Aside from his QA brief, he has a grasp on the business goals, and can help track against the business case. His additional technical skills are also an asset in terms of coding, automation, Jira setup and coaching/training. He is a great team player, team manager, communicator and all round good guy. He will enhance any time. I highly recommend him to anyone.
