Whilst I managed Paul, I was always amazed at the level of empathy and passion he devoted to individual students who were seeking support in planning their careers. He is a truly warm person with a huge depth of knowledge who, most importantly, can help the most under-confident person to overcome the barriers they face to get the job they really want.
