Thomas organizes his thoughts logically and explains to me about the usage of technology very clearly. His recommendation of doing market validation and his expertise in MVP development had indeed helped me in minimizing the risks of building my early stage startup. As a CTO, I value Thomas ability not only to think technically but also know the needs of the business and identify the cost implications of each possible options – A major difference in working with programmers/developers.

Chief Executive Officer, EziAssure, Malaysia

As I was working with Thomas in the past 3 months for a new business idea, we were doing market validation, technology evaluation, and finally pitch deck development. Their services had helped in our attempt to discover and develop new business opportunities for our assets. Thomas provided his perspective not only on technology, but also shared his input on the market insights, relevant contacts in your network, and business development.

I admire Thomas’ ability to drill down to the core of the issue, a trait which I haven’t seen in many other tech professionals. It makes you feel “This was so easy, why didn’t I think of this before.” He is also an expert in Lean Startup methodology. Thomas’ keen sense of business had provided me the right perspective and saved a lot of time and made me feel comfortable even though I have no background in technology.

Thomas is able to see beyond technical needs. He has knowledge and insights about the consumer and business requirements. He is very familiar with the concept of MVP.

Thomas is also flexible and able to accommodate requirements in order to meet end objectives.

I hired Thomas in early 2012 to work with me to develop a business plan and also design a prototype of the business. Thomas impressed me on many aspects – he’s fairly balanced in terms of his appreciation of business principles, entrepreneurship and having a pragmatic view of developing startup ideas and prototypes. This is in addition to the fact that he has the necessary CTO chops and can command and manage a tech team.

Thomas plays an excellent role of a CTO. Business owners and technology professionals can sometimes speak a different languages and become confused. Thomas forms the bridge between CEOs and their technical team. He understands both sides very well. This is key to the success in any technological development, be it as simple as building a website, or as complex as building a new software.

Peter Key
Chief Executive Officer, Objective World Sdn. Bhd., Malaysia

I value Thomas because he is very frank and honest in giving his opinions. He is very transparent, as such I have the liberty to trust him and take his opinion when making a business decision. Technology by itself is invaluable only when it is applied with a good business sense. In that context when we were working on most of the business solutions to our prospective customers, Thomas had always acted as the CTO of VYAZ and had successfully put forth how ideas should be translated into viable business projects.

His strengths in understanding the customer needs, project management experience and knowledge ensure that we delivered the software solution on time, to spec and within budget. His clear and thoughtful analysis was exceptional as was the final solution. He has a great personable style, strong integrity and considerable experience and it’s been a pleasure to work with him.

Richard Reynolds
Group Procurement Director, WorleyParsons, UAE

Thomas is a good listener. He listened and shared his experience with me to review critical issues that I might overlooked otherwise. Unlike a developer who may be too focused on adopting the best but expensive technology. If you are not tech-savvy, there will be risk of miscommunication and project delay. As the CTO of my startup, Thomas understands my business first and recommends reasonable options that meet my business function perfectly. Hence, it helps me to save cost.

Out of our misfortune from horrifying experience with an outsourced developer, I had the chance to talk to Thomas. Instead of jumping to solutions, he asked good probing questions to fact find, and put understanding our business requirements & objectives first. He is passionate about sharing. Thomas manages to put on his business consultant hat nicely with tech hat. A good CTO material.

Thomas’ strong work ethic, self motivation, and ability to work independently were undoubtedly a strong factor in the success of the project.

Donato Masellis
Sales Support Manager, Net-Linx Americas, Canada

What impressed us most about Thomas was his ability to quickly and acutely synthesize business needs and technology constraints into a concrete product. His grasp of the technologies and an appreciation for the benefits each technology could deliver was chief among his valuable contributions. He met ridiculous demands with aplomb, and at the end of a very short development cycle, had produced a working demonstration of his concepts, providing a solid foundation for our continuing development.

Barton Satchwill
Product Development Manager, Net-Linx Asia Pacific, Malaysia

The research project that Thomas worked on requires him to understand various research and development aspects of which many of these sub-problems were no ones that Thomas had prior exposure to and it required him to learn many of the things from researchers at the lab who had such expertise. I have been pleased with the initiative he showed and the discipline with which he approached the problem. Despite the short time, he did create a successful application which is convincing as to the feasibility.
