Paul is one of the best brains I have ever worked with. When I was loaded up with too much information I could rely on Paul to make sense of my thoughts and find a path. He's an essential pitch partner and knows instinctively when work is wrong and will provoke exactly the right conversation to make it right. Paul was a suit once and I think that combination makes him a rare strategic talent and a great business partner and advisor. His commitment to delivering the best work possible is always recognised by clients to the point that meetings would not go ahead if he wasn't there. Client services people should give Paul full access to the client as it is always to the benefit of the client relationship.
