Professor Tim Dafforn, Director of Knowledge Transfer, College of Life and Environmental Sciences, University of Birmingham
"Over the past 10 years I have worked with knowledge transfer experts in five separate universities. Paddie provides by far the most effective support in the KT arena, she is one of the few who truly understands the interface between academic and commercial organisations".
Dr Steve Taylor, Head of Strategic Projects, Research & Innovation Services, University of Birmingham
"Paddie's knowledge of both the HE and biomedical sectors allied with her skills, experience and professional approach not only ensured seamless delivery and quality of service during her time in the role but provided additional value to the team. Paddie's personable approach enabled her to integrate into the team from day one. I was delighted to have secured such a high quality of individual during the period".
Tony Davis, Commercial Director, West Midlands Academic Health Science Network
"Paddie Murphy (PLMCS) was both instrumental in the formation of the organisation of which I am the Commercial Director namely the West Midlands Academic health Science Network and also in the creation and continuing development of the Health EIT (KIC) West Midlands. In working with Paddie I have found her to be highly professional and one of a very small number of people in the UK who fully understands the initial developmental and then continuing support needs of academia, business and the NHS. Paddie is a great communicator and networker and her abilities to broker relationships and to deliver programmes on time and to budget, is key in the continued joint working between my organisation and PLMCS".
Dr Pam Waddell, Director of Birmingham Science City / Dr Andrew Roadnight, European Strategy Development Officer/External Affairs, University of Warwick
"Paddie was engaged by Birmingham Science City for almost two years, to represent the health partners of the WM from the earliest stages of development of the EIT Health KIC to the award to the consortium of which we were part, and through to set-up of the KIC. Paddie engaged throughout with enthusiasm, tenacity and professionalism, building the trust and confidence of local and European partners and bringing to bear her expertise in the health and life sciences field. Paddie was undoubtedly a key factor in the success of this complex and ambitious bid and secured a prominent role in the KIC for the WM Health Partners within the winning consortium".
Dr David Brown, Director Trihelica Limited
"From working with Paddie in many assignments I know her to be articulate, responsive and effective. She has a remarkable ability to bring people together and create partnerships, overcoming sometimes competing interests to define, win and then manage complex projects that lead to tangible results. Paddie is a stimulating colleague and a pleasure to work with".
Mrs Jan Gilder, Director Project Support Office, University of Wolverhampton
"In recent assignments PLMCS has worked well alongside my staff to meet the scope and timeline of particular bidding objectives. The work is of a high professional standard, Paddie's expertise is always useful in shaping up proposals with us. I appreciate her commitment and flexibility very much and importantly the fact that she helps to increase the scores of our bids so that we can win them as a result of the additional insight that she brings to us. I find Paddie's working style to be extremely professional, friendly and supportive, which is essential when dealing with my customers and meeting the demands of time-sensitive projects".
Professor Theo Arvanitis, Director of Research, Institute of Digital Healthcare, Warwick Manufacturing Group, University of Warwick
