“I worked with Graham for several years across a range of challenging issues in ICT and in broader change management. He was a key figure in helping the authority to tackle them, partly because of his professional talents and skills, but also because of his ability to work with people in teams and in leading teams and get the best out of them.  He also worked extremely well with elected members, and external stakeholders.  I would unreservedly recommend him".
