Paul is Communications Director, responsible for client relations (including publicity, contractual, compliance, and policy matters), as well as marketing communications and sales enablement. He also oversees NelsonHall's NEAT vendor evaluation projects, and edits the NelsonHall blog.

His role leverages many years' experience as a writer, industry analyst, and commercial manager.

Immediately prior to NelsonHall, Paul was the U.K. Knowledge Manager for McKinsey & Company's Business Technology practice.
