Consulting Solution Manager, Oracle|PGBU
“All our businesses are made up of a series of projects. If we are to be commercially successful, then we managers must quickly increase our capacity in the area of Project Management. Raymond is an expert in Project Management. His companies (P.M.I.S, Ltd) practical approach and training capability make the whole subject come alive. I would recommend their software plus their "hands-on" approach to Project Management.”

Managing Director at Turlon & Associates
“I have worked with Raymond since April 2013 and can attest to the fact that he delivers a quality product to an agreed set of objectives, on time, whilst delivering significant cost savings to the corporation. Raymond brings a particular expertise amongst his peers and is able to leverage his considerable experience to identify what the Client ‘needs’, distinguishing from what the Client ‘wants’. He communicates this effectively, demonstrating the value and cost benefits building a mutually strong relationship. As a consequence the corporation has decided to adopt these products globally ensuring delivery in the other strategic parts of the business from Indonesia to Angola and Alaska to Trinidad.”
“Raymond’s hallmark quality as a professional was his ability to provide deep insight into what the client needs to get the desired business results. He was honest and straight forward in his dealing and clear on what was required from the client and from himself. His commitment to buildiTestimonialsng sustainable talent was steadfast and he did a great job. I would highly recommend Raymond as he delivered strong results and I saw the talent of my local teams flourish. He also established strong in house coaches that taught others how to excel.”
Chief of Staff – Safety & Operational Risk, BP
“Raymond Poole is a great Project Manager and an excellent teacher of the fundamentals and intricacies of managing projects. I worked with Raymond in South Africa on a very important project with the South African government. This project required people and political skills as well as a solid technical knowledge of Primavera and how to modify, adapt, and use it. I doubt we could have been successful without the skills Raymond brought to the project.”
