Further, the trust that I have developed in John throughout these engagements is a significant aspect of our relationship.
John's experience and deep expertise as a software architect, along with his considerable people skills and business acumen, combine to make him an outstanding business partner and resource. These qualities are also evident in the standards he has for his team members, and contribute to the quality of service on offer from Small Spark as a whole.
I had the great pleasure of working with John as a key member of the Template Service work stream managed by me as part of the $470m Personally-Controlled Electronic Health Record (PCEHR) program.
