"Marc, from InterFace, visited my division a number of times, in his role as Interim Global HSE Manager. His broad knowledge of health and Safety made him a perfect mentor for our division. He came to our group at a time when H&S was a new concept for the company and with his help we have made a quantum leap forward to improve our facility.

He is very thorough and opened our eyes on both big and small lingering issues. His approach was one of teaching not complaining. He taught us to become more proactive while respecting our values and operating mode, not by using authority. He was understanding yet strict on the end results. He also provided guidance for some of our more junior staff. Marc achieved a cultural change not only in our division but throughout the whole group of companies. I more than recommend Marc, I will definitely seek his services again in the future!"
