He has been a dedicated supporter of our work, particularly in key areas such as digitalisation.

John Barrie, Chair of the GWO Training Committee added: “It has been my pleasure to work alongside Neil these past few years. His commitment and dedication to safety for the wind power workforce are second to none. I hope we will see him again in a similar capacity in the very near future.”
