"We engaged Victor to mentor the restructuring of our organisation. It was great to get his input and view on some very tricky change management issues, feedback on cultural approach, and a number of red flag issues that we came across during the project. We know Victor as a person of integrity. We appreciate his honesty and courage to call things.”
"Victor worked with us several times in a facilitation role to help us make progress with strategic projects. I enjoyed working with Victor and was very pleased with the high quality deliverables produced. Victor is skilled at thinking “outside the square” and bringing a fresh perspective to projects, often resulting in more efficient or effective outcomes. Victor has a wealth of knowledge and a versatile skill-set. I found he was equally comfortable in a strategic or hands-on capacity - or a mixture of both! Regardless of the brief, he always got the job done with impeccable professionalism. I have no hesitation in recommending Victor to others."
"Victor coached our team on intercultural negotiation skills in facilitated workshops. I liked that the people were engaged, the interaction, and easy-going nature of the sessions. Victor was very passionate about the subject. The workshops had a good mixture of talking, discussions, slides, exercises, and videos. Victor facilitated in a logical and interesting way. I liked the context setting and how he kept us in the learning zone. Victor used the experience around the room well, gave the team a lot of practical leads to take away, and showed to have good experience in the topic."
Head of Department
"Victor facilitated resolution of a post implementation conflict in a client-supplier relationship. I found Victor to be instrumental in resolving the dispute by his prompt, detailed and impartial assessment of the matters in contention. I also appreciated his proactive approach and regular follow ups of both parties."
"We engaged Victor to give us negotiation coaching about longstanding differences between our team members and regulators. Victor was able to grasp our issues, summarise them succinctly, and thoroughly apply strategies and processes to help us and our negotiations forward. The openness generated amongst team members was fantastic. The workshop was intense while entertaining, giving us lots of ideas for our own organisation, and personal role and influence; it also helped our commitment, patience, and positive determination."
"I would like to express sincere thanks for the hard work and very long hours that Victor worked with my organisation to unravel issues with one of our suppliers, and help us select and implement an alternative system. The highly proficient manner in which Victor worked tirelessly with our team to undertake this exercise has resulted in an extremely high quality system that we believe we can enjoy for many years to come."
"Victor is very passionate & one of the most client-centric professionals I have worked with. His enthusiasm, positive outlook at work & team-spirit are infectious! His relationship-building & networking skills are legendary."
