He has a strong technical background based on both theory and practice, a pragmatic approach to the implementation of sound software and architectural principals, and a genuine desire to help people understand how good methodology can deliver the right results. John's recent work with a vendor in the Middle East broadened his experience to include commercial experience, which he has recently used at Vodafone to build strong partnerships with key suppliers.
