  • Even-tempered and always curious, Paul took an interest in whatever you were interested in, engaged and wanting to learn more. (George Bulat)
  • I worked with Paul early in my career at IDC and we kept in touch over the years. He was a great mentor and always willing to provide advice and guidance. Paul was approachable and sociable, happy to chat about sports, music, family, and many other interesting topics. He will be missed. (Tony Olvet)
  • Paul continued to interact with IDC Canada over the years. Each time we met, he was always happy and smiling. (Barbara Hall)
  • Paul made a wonderfully strong impact on many people as a colleague, mentor and friend. He gave his time generously to people, always with a positive and warm spirit. A gifted, natural storyteller, Paul was particularly giving to people working to improve their public speaking skills. He coached many people, enabling them to overcome fears, gain confidence, and succeed. I always welcomed Paul's advice. (Jason Bremner)
