    “I had the chance of working with David Howells on two separate projects; during which I highly appreciated his cross-cultural exposure and knowledge, his organizational structure dynamics and challenges, team building skills and most importantly his understanding of the human factor role and importance in an organization. He was insightful, wise and challenging at various times of the relationship.”
