CONSULTING ACTIVITY An update

2020 has been quiet, and I will continue part-time for the near future. The UKs exit from the EU is in my view a big mistake, and I will need to understand the new rules before taking on more work in Europe. Depending on activity as the Covid-19 restrictions are lifted, I may decide to close my consulting business. I will still consider possible assignments in a personal capacity.

I would like to thank all past and present clients for providing me with interesting and challenging projects. I hope my input has been useful and led to solved problems, enhanced quality and better performance.

The rest of this website remains pretty much as it was, but I have moved my publications record to Orcid at https://orcid.org/0000-0002-2577-1886
