Kind words shared by previous managers and coworkers
I find Tom full of innovative ideas, a highly enthusiastic individual who understands the vision and helps materialise it.
Tom was a key member of my Change and Comms team. He is a highly skilled and creative individual who produced excellent comms collateral and worked well in a team and independently.
Tom is a creative, dedicated and passionate marketer who combines advanced technical abilities with an innovative approach and genuine commitment to the cause. Tom is great at thinking of novel ways around obstacles and his creativity was a real boon to our team.
Tom joined a large project halfway through its life-cycle and started adding significant value almost immediately. His friendly and proactive approach gave the team confidence in everything that he did, and the end-results did not disappoint. I hope to work with Tom again soon, you’d be lucky to have him on your team!
Ever enthusiastic and happy to help, Tom is an exceptionally talented and creative individual. His creativity is complimented by not only his technical expertise, but the ability to communicate his ideas in a patient, straight-forward manner.
Tom is an absolute delight to work with. He is creative, positive, highly collaborative, has terrific stakeholder engagement and highly productive. His contribution to the project and the wider Change & Communications Practice was highly valued. I would love to work with Tom in the future and believe he would be an asset to any business.
I can honestly say that Tom has been one of the most easy to work with customers who has worked tirelessly to get to grips with an internally undocumented and non-change controlled system before coming to our organisation to help bring it up to date. Tom’s level of detail is second to none, his enthusiasm and engaging personality have made him an absolute pleasure to work with.
Tom joined us during MFA rollout project earlier in 2020 when we required someone who could hit the ground running within Change & Communications team. He quickly picked up the work and produced high quality communication deliverables. His creative out of the box thinking, attention to details, proactive can do attitude and fit for purpose mindset resulted in high quality communication deliverables which were appreciated by the business stakeholders and higher management.
Tom worked on a number of projects in my time working with him including;-the redesign of the main company website, the launch of the a new 848 Comms division and the creation of sales collateral and other digital content used in webinars and customer communications. Tom certainly has the eye for the creative and is capable of combining this with his knowledge of digital tools such as Mailchimp and Photoshop to deliver engaging content.
