Now he’s approaching his 40th year of delivering effective programmes – from pioneering health solutions to delivering complex digital solutions. Over the years Dr Savi has worked on projects for: Microsoft, O2, Vodafone, 3, Dept of Health, Investors in People, Nokia and National Semiconductor Corporation. His drive for success is to realise success in others.

With an increasing demand for organisations opting for a hybrid infrastructure, Tal is ideally placed to run disaster recovery workshops and effective service readiness consultancy.
