Known for his positive attitude, he gives praise where it is due and encourages members of his team to be informed and up-to-date with market trends.

Due to a technical server failure, many attendees of the ECA(SA)’s live webinar, ‘The Pitfalls of Project Management’ were unable to attend or log into the webinar session on 15 August and, as a result of this technical failure, the live streaming of the webinar was cancelled.
