"I worked with Ian from approximately 1991 through
1997, when I left Aetna's corporate education function. His
method of identifying best practices in human resources and
education through collaborative research is first rate, and
provided us with very important information to improve our
products and services.
Ian has extensive world-wide contacts which enriched the research
and the follow-on collaboration that the research made possible.
I was very impressed with his ability to incorporate all the
needs of the various company sponsors and provide all of us
with desired specific information. This research was extremely
important to us as we developed new technologies and increased
our education and training opportunities for the executive
population (top 400) at Aetna.
Ian is a great listener, has excellent writing and speaking
skills, and is very knowledgeable about company practices
in areas of human resources and human capital development.
These skills, combined with his networks, would be an asset
to any international project. Ian is versatile and enjoys
learning and expanding his knowledge base. New subjects would
not serve as a hurdle for him but a wonderful challenge that
I am sure he would embrace."
