X-Pert are professional in approach and give quality training."
Cuong Tran - Service Transformation, Kinetic IT
"Thank you for providing me with professional training services this year. I have attended the Introduction to PM, Applied MS Project and the PMP® Prep courses all to build up the required PDU’s to sit my PMP® exam. I have now passed and am glad to report that I am now certified, which is one of the main goals that I had set myself for 2010.
I especially enjoyed the PMP® course as Clint was very knowledgeable and the mix of attendees provided an excellent insight across industries as well as the varying applications of Project Management techniques and principles that would be best utilised. Some of the guidelines, tools and techniques learnt as part of this course have been successfully applied in my professional work requirements for Kinetic IT.
I have recommended the course to my colleagues and advised our Organisational Capability Branch that the course does fit in with professional development opportunities for other staff interested in the Project Management discipline."
Liz Gerginov, PMP®, Project Manager - Honeywell Ltd
"This is just a short note to thank everyone at X-Pert Group for the great organisation and delivery of the PMP Exam Preparation Course.
Special thanks should go to Clint who delivered the course in an excellent format and pace.
Clint’s great knowledge of the subject matter and experience with the PMP® Certification process was invaluable to all attendees. So far 4 of the 6 attendees of our course sat the exam and all of us passed at our first attempt. I believe that this speaks volumes of the quality of the course and the way it was delivered.
Thanks very much to everyone at X-Pert Group and to Clinton in't Veld in particular."

PRINCE2® Foundation Training, August 2011
Dunya Dolmatoff - Curtin Business School
“I personally do not hesitate to recommend Clinton in’t Veld as a PRINCE2® trainer. He has an amazing ability to engage and connect with people across many levels in either a one on one or group situation. This ability is not diminished in group settings of mixed levels, i.e. team member, manager, and executive. He presents the complex in a simple and clear way on a level commensurable with the audience and with the individual. His response to questions is rich and meaningful while respecting conflicting views. For example, he often provides strategic context to practical situations, and links the various areas that need to be considered for project success. Feedback from members from my organisation who meet and train with Clinton speak highly of him as a trainer at both the practitioner and director level”
Chris Davis, PMO Manager - Monadelphous Engineering
“Clinton has been outstanding on his engagement with Monadelphous, he is very personable and easy to work with, and he has great expertise in his subject area."
Mireille Levenstein, CFO - Paracon Group
"I have worked with Mr. Clinton in't Veld ("Clinton") for the past four years, firstly in his capacity as Chief Executive Officer of the X-Pert Group in South Africa and the as Managing Director of our subsidiary in Australia. The X-Pert Group in South Africa is a Project management consulting and training company which Clinton formed 13 years before our company; Paracon Holding acquired the business from him. Clinton then moved to Australia and opened a subsidiary there for which he recently purchased 100% of the equity from us
During the four years of working with Clinton, I have found him to be both professional and trustworthy. Clinton is well organised, diligent, ambitious, extremely knowledge and passionate about project management. His commitment and effort to achieve any objective he sets himself is extraordinary.
Clinton has been very successful in building solid client relationships, leading staff and managing work quality. He is an entrepreneur who is able to set up and run a business enterprise successfully."
Mark Jurgens - CEO - Paracon Group
"I have known Mr. Clinton in't Veld for about 10 years, firstly as a joint venture partner, secondly as the Chief Executive Officer of the X-Pert Group in South-Africa, a company he founded and grew into a respected project management consulting and training business and more recently, as my Managing Director of our Australian subsidiary, the X-Pert Group(Australia). In all the years I have known Clinton; I have found him to be a strong willed entrepreneur. He has always acted with integrity and has shown the abilities of turning start-up business endeavours into successful and profitable ventures
Furthermore,Clinton is a very strong advocate and practitioner of project management. He is seen by staff, clients and other interested stakeholders as an innovative driver and applicator of both managing by project and project management practices. Clinton is also a strong facilitator, trainer and mentor to others.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Clinton."
Wendy Clark – Human Resource Manager
“I was privileged to work for, and with, Mr Clinton in’t Veld for a period of approximately 9 years, during which time I found Mr in’t Veld to be a person of the highest integrity and capabilities. Mr in’t Veld started a Project Management Consulting company in South Africa and his business acumen was instrumental in the company becoming a highly successful enterprise. Mr in’t Veld was recognized by his peers as one of the leading consultants in the delivery of highly successful projects”
Jika - Ken Jarvis, CEO
“I have known Clinton int’Veld since 1993 when he was a Project Manager assigned to work on a complex project for the 4th largest bank in South Africa. (I was a Senior IT Executive in the Bank at the time). Since 1993 I have seen Clinton start his own business, sell 50% of it to the largest IT listed entity in South Africa, buy it back and then recently sell it again.Throughout this time Clinton has always been a person of the highest integrity, shown the highest level of professionalism, been a seriously smart businessman, yet remained himself…friendly, committed to his family and the people that work for him, and his friends (of which I consider myself lucky to be one of them).
In the field in which he has worked – Project Management – he is known to not only be a World Leader in this space, but entrepreneurial at the same time, exploring new ways to perfect that art of Project Management. I have always used Clinton for the most complex of tasks, and he has always delivered the results with ‘distinction’. In fact the very first project we worked on together in 1993 (see above) won a Worldwide award. I believe I can honestly say I have not written such a reference about anyone (and I am asked to do quite a few) with such praise, yet it also does not seem to give Clinton the credit which is due to him.
A stunning individual…Australia’s gain is South Africa’s loss”
Bakar Jakoet, CFO - Pick n’ Pay
“Clinton in't Veld has been an advisor to the Pick n Pay Group since 1996. Clinton was largely responsible for taking the Company through a transformation process in which it changed all its business processes and management structures. He has also led many projects undertaken by the Company where external expertise was required.
He is currently involved in assisting the organisation to re-structure from a decentralized operation to consolidating many of its divisions and is also assisting the management team in structuring their responsibility areas.
During all engagements we have found Clinton to be very thorough with a mature approach to our issues. He ensured that he understood our requirements very well and executed his tasks with the utmost integrity, responsibility and trustworthiness.
Clinton, with his acute business acumen, always brings new aspects to the business for consideration and when these were adopted, he executes them with true professionalism.
The fact that we have continually engaged Clinton and have sought it fit to still engage him, even though he has emigrated from South Africa, speaks volumes for his ability and experience.
I have personally engaged Clinton in assisting me in making the transition from being the Finance Operations Controller to becoming the CFO of the Pick n Pay Group”
Kevin Wynne, Human Resource Manager - Pick n’ Pay
"It is with great pleasure that I recommend Clinton in't Veld. I have known Clinton since 1996 and have interacted and worked with him on a number of projects within the Pick n Pay Group.
Clinton has been the designated project manager on a number of our large corporate projects as well as some of the smaller ones. Clinton has also played a consulting role reporting directly to the Group CEO and assisted with Senior Executive restructuring and selection and coaching.
Clinton in my view, provides excellent project management leadership (in the traditional sense) together with excellent General Manager capabilities. His interaction is superb not only at executive level but also at lower levels of mangement-a rare ability.
His high levels of energy and enthusiastic approach to all matters brushes off on all who work with him, this together with his ability to distill complex matters into manageable components allows rapid progress ."
Pick n’ Pay - Nick Badminton, CFO
“Our company has made use of Clinton in't Veld on a wide variety of complex and organisational defining projects over the past 15 years. I have found the work that Clinton has done for our organisation, in both his planning, managing and delivery dimensions, to be of outstanding quality and extremely value adding to not only me, but also to my board and senior management team.
Clinton has contributed significantly to the way our business thinks, plans and executes projects. His knowledge of project management methods and his ability to think strategically and act tactically has always made him a valuable member of my team. Clinton takes great interest in getting to know our business, to connect with our challenges and strategies, to be sensitive to our confidential information and to always act with the highest integrity and trust. I have no hesitation in strongly recommending Clinton and the work he does”
Pick n’ Pay - Bronwyn Rohland, IT and Strategic Director
"I have been working with Clinton in't Veld for many years, across various projects and programmes and cannot speak highly enough of himfor the role he has played within Pick n Pay's project environment.
Clinton is a capable and accomplised project strategist and his continued support and dedication as well as utter commitment to Pick n Pay's success is incalculable. Clinton is an impactful individual and his interactions at Executive Board level are nothing but professional and insightful. His integrity and trustworthiness are unparalleled.
Clinton's professional and strategic approach truly is an asset to any company or organisation needing assistance in the project management field."
