I have had the pleasure of working with Grant on a number of major risk & governance consulting engagements. These included work in both the financial and oil and gas sectors in countries ranging from Qatar, Saudi Arabia, UAE and Pakistan. The jobs always included working with Boards and high level management including CEO’s, CFO’s, CRO’s, Risk Committees, Strategy Committees, Audit Committees, and other high level directors which delivered value and enabled insights to support strategic decision-making. Having Grant as part of the team, or leading the team in many cases, added real value to our clients who felt comfortable with him speaking to senior leaders and who appreciate and gain real value from his insights and recommendations. It is not just the client who has gained from his involvement.
The consulting teams who have worked with Grant have been able to lean on his strong experience, knowledge and expertise of Risk & Governance.
He is always willing to share this experience and has a fantastic ability to analyse the requirements of the job and put together structured solutions. I believe his wealth of experience working at board level in various sectors is a crucial element in his ability to formulate plans of action, develop effective risk and governance structures and guidance, mentoring and value added recommendations to clients.
An area that I have found an additional great support, was in the jobs where he has led engagements. His ability to lead and to ensure smooth execution both from a deliverables point of view as well as admin point of views as well as paying attention to the quality of deliverables, which took pressure and stress off the team members and ensured the client would receive high quality deliverables ahead of schedule.
