“I worked with Paul in my capacity as Chef de Mission for the ParalympicsGB team at the London 2012 Paralympic Games. Paul joined the team, as the Sport Team Leader for Wheelchair Tennis 12 months out from the Games. He was a very popular member of the team and developed very strong relationships with everyone including his athletes and support staff as well as the staff at the British Paralympic Association.
Paul demonstrated strong leadership and communication skills, and when accompanied with an extensive knowledge of high performance sport they make up the perfect ingredients for a first class leader. Paul’s role was to ensure that the wheelchair tennis athletes were best prepared and kept everyone focused throughout the Games, and in my opinion, he most certainly achieved this.
I thoroughly enjoyed working with Paul and I hope I have the opportunity to work with him again.” – Craig Hunter, Chef de Mission, ParalympicsGB
