Over the last few years Guy has become a trusted counsel to the CAS senior management team. He is authentic and has the ability to energise the room. He is motivational, inspirational and continues to make a positive value adding contribution to the success of our business. He has a fantastic ability to ‘cut through the noise’ and deal with the things that really matter. Guy is also insightful, bringing to life certain situations through management experience and with great stories that allow easier understanding of the subject matter. I could not recommend him highly enough.
