I have worked with Jason on multiple work streams and various projects in my position as Director of Professional Advancement at Specsavers.
Not only has Jason got an excellent skillset as a clinician and technical expert, he is also an engaging educator and has great procurement knowledge and project management skills. He was instrumental in the roll out of our OCT devices - a huge multi million pound investment that brought logistical, networking, operational, clinical and training challenges. Jason's involvement was pivotal and his unique blend of skills was very much in demand and hugely appreciated.
I've always put a premium on approachability in those I work with and Jason never failed to deliver. His ability to consistently and genuinely connect with stakeholders and delegates, coupled with the attributes already mentioned, ensured smooth running of events, meetings and projects.
Jason has always proven adaptable, conscientious and diligent. He is consistently able to suggest improvements, challenge the status quo and adapt his style to suit the task in hand whilst providing sage counsel and strategic input.

Jason's impact on Birmingham Optical will be felt for many years to come - effectively creating, leading and executing the strategy around many innovative product launches and new sectors like the OCT, Education and Tele-refraction. He is a visionary who is able to anticipate market trends and brings a disruptor mentality to an existing segment.
As a self-starter, he works at an incredible pace. As an individual, he has a fantastic craving for self-development and knowledge, continuing to stretch his learning to new heights.

Occuity have worked directly and indirectly with Jason both at Birmingham Optical and latterly at FYEye Ltd. He brings a wealth of experience in the optometry and ophthalmology sectors.
Occuity have benefited from Jason's breadth of knowledge on a range of topics and FYEye regularly support us in developing our products. We'd recommend Jason highly to companies looking for knowledge and support when developing products for the ophthalmic sectors.

Jason was instrumental in delivering a broad range of training and education services during the Vision Express trial and subsequent roll out of OCT. From live lectures and webinars, to excellent user training videos, to OCT interpretation CET and project management, the support Jason provided, managed and lead was second to none. Ultimately, as with other corporate clients, the success of the OCT roll out depended heavily on the right training and education. Jason ensured the success of this large and important project.

I've known and worked with Jason for many years. His experience of optics and clinical knowledge are exceptional. He's a fantastic educator and has been an integral part of our national OCT rollout program to over 900 stores. It's always a pleasure working with Jason
