– Blaine Timlick, Program Manager at Canadian Grain Commission

I worked with Fadi briefly in connection with H2O3 Pure Water Inc. Although our association only lasted a few months, I became impressed with his ability to quickly grasp the salient issues facing the business, and the steps he took to drive them to closure. He also provided critical leadership for the team he was working with. Without his direct involvement the team would not have been able to successfully reach their goals.

– Timothy Piwonka-Corle, Senior Director of Innovation and Instrumentation Engineering at Brooks Automation

Dr. Asfour was an asset to our research and development team. He possesses excellent interdisciplinary and inter-functional communication skills that were put to good use interfacing between our production, engineering, marketing and our overseas operations.

Fadi translated these qualities into a web-based, information management program that is of tremendous use to me as a project manager and scientist. It is now my preferred interface because it is fast and responsive both on and off-site, which is of importance to me as I am frequently on the road and require up-to-date data. In addition, I find the web interface to be an excellent training tool for new scientists. It allows them to assimilate our progress and understand our processes a lot sooner than our old query based system, thus transforming them into productive members of the group more quickly.
