Phill took over, at very short notice, the highly complex and demanding role of Drought Liaison Adviser at Water UK, after the previous Adviser was offered a senior role in a different sector. He took over several projects as part of a detailed work plan that required getting up to speed incredibly quickly,which he did with humour, good will and hard work. One project in particular needed highly developed negotiating and diplomatic skills to bring industry and stakeholders on board. With his incredible eye for detail, focussed approach and courteous business style, Phill delivered on time and within budget, and with everyone on board. I could not recommend him highly enough

I appreciate your input to this project, which has been most professional and very useful to reconcile political and technical viewpoints. Your flexible approach was appreciated.
Steve Clay
UKWIR Project manager

In the work you have undertaken so far for WRAS your ready grasp of new topics, your considerable skills in negotiation, your energy and initiative and dedication to achieving our objectives have been amply demonstrated. I have no doubt that you've made a huge difference to our chances of success and also it is a pleasure to work with you. Thank you.
Dr Steve Tuckwell
Managing Director, WRAS Ltd

I wanted to express my personal thanks and that of the Auriga Board and Trustees we work with for the excellent research and report you have provided. We have, of course, been delighted with the end result but more than that from a personal point of view, working with you has meant that it has been a wholly enjoyable and productive experience. From our initial thoughts through to the finished product has meant that we have succeeded in pulling together a piece of research which has both informed and added to the debate around utility customers who struggle to pay bills. We look forward to the next project working with Policy Consulting Network.

I am delighted to see you have set up on your own and I want to wish you the very best in it. I enjoyed working with you down through the years whenever our paths crossed and I appreciated the fact that you would always convey my point of view to your audience. Your success in achieving this was always reflected in the feedback and support I would receive at future meetings.

With the pressures of the day job in the companies it is often very difficult to commit the time required to deal with strategic and national issues.  I am very grateful for the help and support you have given to both myself and the debt group over the years by progressing many of these issues and keeping the industry focused.  We valued your political awareness and diplomacy in managing companies, regulators and stakeholders.
