John was proactive, always asking everyone if he could help out. He wasn't one to sit back and twiddle his thumbs. He took on a range of tasks from researching and writing blog posts, running errands, and creating presentations in power point. He also managed a small project on my behalf, reaching out to and briefing photographers for a shoot, taking quotes and answering their queries. It was great to have an extra pair of hands. John has a lovely manner, is good humoured and very respectful. Had he not have had plans to travel we would certainly liked to have kept him on."
