I have had the pleasure of working with Basil for many years – he is a consummate professional and a strong Programme Manager. He is extremely thoughtful and always tries to find the most pragmatic way through difficult issues with the client’s interests at heart. I would have no problem recommending him to any organisation.

Basil had the responsibility of managing a large complex migration, with multiple stakeholders and across a complex supply chain. His performance on this programme was excellent. Delivering at scale, on time and to a high level of quality with minimal business disruption. A pleasure to work with!

Mark Peterson, Lead Programme Manager, BP

Basil is a very experienced and competent programme manager. He has excellent communication skills. I reported to Basil for a year as his deputy on a multi-million dollar, complex storage migration programme, where he led a team of over 45 staff, and he was a great mentor to me. I would happily work with him or for him again.
