"Peter, I am honoured to be able to recommend you. For more than two years you have shown immense professionalism that went far beyond the “call of duty” as you found solutions to my multi-juridical conundrums/questions; many of which were of a “having one's cake and eating it” nature. Not once did you show anything but a laser focused professionalism and the desire to find the best solution. Others have highlighted your honesty, supreme professionalism, attention to detail, customer focus, patience and more. To these I would only add your passion to improve the reputation of the industry through your personal behaviour and actions, and your seemingly endless studying as you deepen even further your industry certification."
