Your expert course leader is an award-winning consultant and trainer with 30 years’ experience in maintenance and reliability improvement. He has worked across five continents, in a wide variety of environments from the world’s largest oil refinery to a small drinks production line. He has 10 years of maintenance management experience in the process industry, so he brings a very practical approach to training. He moved into consulting with ABB Eutech as their global maintenance specialist where he led maintenance and reliability best practice panels, delivered a wide range of maintenance improvement projects and trained other consultants.

Your expert course leader founded his consultancy and training business in 2002 to focus on maintenance and reliability improvement. As part of this, he developed a range of maintenance “models of excellence” with inputs from authors, international lecturers and some of the world’s leading consultants and operators. His work has been recognised as being at the leading edge of industry best practice, winning independent awards such as the UK Chemical Industries Association “Excellence in Engineering” award.

He remains close to the industry as a respected specialist helping operating companies to achieve changes in performance. This ongoing field work enables him to continue to refine and extend best practice and the learning from this is continually fed into his training.

His unique experience of facilitating two major turnarounds when the Coronavirus escalated into lockdown have given him a unique insight into how events of this type can disrupt maintenance. Moreover, his involvement in developing management processes and leading a Coronavirus response on a major industrial asset means he can talk with direct experience about how to cope and innovate in this global pandemic.

The knowledge sharing by the trainer with his wide experience in plant maintenance has enabled the trainer to deliver an effective course outcome.

The trainer shared a lot of exercises which is good.

This is my first ever VILT and I've enjoyed it so far. I like the way the trainer shared his personnel story and videos so that participants can relate to the principles in real-life situation. This helps us to remember the concept better.

First online VILT. Great experience.
