For me personally, Oly managed to redirect my thinking to look at things from a different angle. A perspective that has always there, but I just couldn't see at times.
Nevermore than a meeting. email or phone call away, I always felt like he had my back when I needed it. Even if it was just to get the noise out of my head and vent, he was (and still is) there.
When it comes to finding someone who is supportive, guiding and an overall lovely fella, then you can't get better than Oly.
