“Michael, as chair of the NERC Water Security Knowledge Exchange Programme Advisory Group, played a significant role in ensuring that the aims and objectives were delivered.
Firm guidance, a supreme knowledge of the private ‘water sector’ and its needs coupled with a broad understanding of research requirements and capabilities are qualities that are difficult to find for such a role and so we were lucky as Michael delivers all of these. He offered me, as Programme Lead, unstinting help through tricky politics and always gave invaluable advice and support”.
