"I first got introduced to Wayne many years ago on a trip he made to Zaire, we got chatting on a plane trip and later had our first meeting at the airport. At that time I worked for the government, and found Wayne to be an extraordinary wise and intelligent person with a vast knowledge in several fields. I requested that he take the opportunity to become an advisor to the local government in various areas. Wayne took up my offer and soon became an important advisor in the system, bringing many a project to be very successful. Wayne advised for approximately six years before he moved on to other opportunities I lost track of Wayne and was pleased to find him once again in 2007, Once again I introduced Wayne to many a project, and am happy to have his input and advise as he always makes the project a full success. I strongly recommend Wayne as a top executive and consultant, he has skills that are hard to describe as the world excellence would be a shortfall for his brilliance.Dr. Jacob MuGanmbaGovernment Services

Wayne Poswell is one of those few fine and rare gems one only finds once in a lifetime and one can not put a price tag or value on it. Wayne has an outstanding mind, and thinks at speeds that are difficult to imagine. He can predict the next few years in advance with his knowledge and skills, and has the ability to think dynamically and find solutions for any project. Wayne sometimes goes out to the edge of things, but he knows what he is doing and to listen to him always pays off, even if the edge seems dangerous. Wayne is a top director, a brilliant executive, and is one of the worlds few top thinkers. A business guru and expert in his field. "T. Embeki."
