I've worked with him.
I remember I turned up at NHS Botley without my laptop, (my kids had taken it from my bag.) He just sighed, but that was nothing compared to the email I got eight months later from the CEO, which said "Be a twat with me and you will lose."
He's a good lad, though like all microsoft staff, they think every piece of software produced should have the potential to scale in functionaly to solve any problem, even ones it wasn't intended for. The word bespoke becomes quantumly invisible once you pass through the doors at TVP.
My guess is he'll have a job instantly. I'd give him a reference for any strategy role.
