He has an excellent knowledge of the various products available in the marketplace, and ensured we followed a methodical approach to determining our requirements, drafting a proposal and ultimately selecting a vendor. John is an excellent sounding board for ideas, providing honest feedback while ensuring that clients come to their own conclusions.

John worked pro-actively with the whole team and took the time to genuinely help each team member manage their transition. He guided us along and kept the project on track, going live right on the planned date. John also migrated our data into the new system, including resolving some long standing data quality issues. John works to a high professional standard and I highly recommend him.Nick Hakes, General Manager, Member Services & Campus AFA, Association of Financial Advisers
Due to rapid membership growth the AFA needed a new system to better support their operations. The project delivery date could not be slipped without causing substantial impact on the business and as such strong engagement with the client and the vendor was required in order to deliver the project on time.
Australian Institute of Project Management
As the sponsor for the AIPM Web implementation project, I appreciated the 'steady hand on the tiller' that John provided. I found he managed stakeholders expectations well. He didn't present me project problems. He came to me with issues and options for resolution. I was very happy with his professional services.David Bryant, AIPM Board Director, Australian Institute of Project Management

Dear John, I wanted to thank you for your work in putting the project plan together and progressing things so effectively. I know it has taken quite a bit of sorting and appreciate your careful thought and consideration in formulating the plan.

I think we all have the same agenda – streamlining processes while optimising engagement in targeted ways with maximum numbers of contacts.Dr. Cathy Kezelman, President, Blue Knot Foundation

John came into Supply Nation at a time when we were struggling with both infrastructure and application integration problems. John assessed our environment and designed an end architecture along with a transition plan. He then wrote a clear and concise report which was approved by the Board and set the path for the way forward for the organisation. John’s contribution was invaluable.Marilyn Thorpe, Head of Corporate Services, Supply Nation

Club Manager’s Association Australia
John Walker was engaged to facilitate the transition of databases for the CMAA. We had a fairly old system that was outdated and with the supplier wanting to dismantle this operation and platform, we needed to act swiftly and carefully to get onto a new system, Not as straight forward as it seemed as we lived under a fairly convoluted architecture with many stakeholders involved holding the key to progressive changes. John managed to not only deconstruct the current situation, but also carefully negotiate the changes needed. Both at supplier level and staff operational level. John’s ability to carefully explain simply to all involved what was happening at each stage of the transition, implementation and launch was very much appreciated by all staff and management. What was looking like a mountain too high to climb, became easily understood and a relief to have someone who could talk the talk, yet also be sympathetic to the various operational needs of our membership system. This transition, had John not been involved would have ended up being costly, time consuming and a relationship disaster with our members. Highly recommended.Chris Keeble, Membership and Sponsorship Manager, Club Manager’s Association Australia
CMAA were managing their membership on an unsupported system based on outdated technology together with some proprietary integrations into their website. They needed a plan to get their operation over to a new platform, including the transfer of credit cards from one merchant to another, with minimal disruption to their business.
