After working on a particularly problematic project for some time, Amit came in as the project manager. From day one members of my team spoke with relief about how the project was already running more easily. Amit is professional, skilled, flexible, personable and works pragmatically and effectively towards the best result for agency and client alike. He turned a problem project into successful conclusion. My team and I thoroughly enjoyed working with him and his open approach and I would be extremely happy to work with Amit again. Great with people, great collaboration, great project management.
Amit is an attentive and efficient project manager. He always has time to talk things though with you and he respects the creative process. On top of that he's a great guy and always swings by for a morning catchup.
I worked with Amit at OgilvyOne on the American Express business. It’s a big, complex account and you need to be very focused and able to deliver. Amit’s all round digital knowledge, organization and professional attitude ensured work was always delivered to budget and on time.
Amit covered for me on the Landmark Shops Mobile project while I was on a long holiday. Amit's role was to take over the account management and digital delivery of the retail mobile website for Landmark Group. Amit took on the project effortlessly and with ease, I returned to find that he had followed (in one case improved) the processes and controls I had put in place. He ensured that we delivered as initially planned and there was still a healthy margin on the project on my return. The client commented positively on his ability to delivering to plans, the quality of work output and the quick responses to feedback. I would welcome Amit covering for me again anytime and would recommend him to any company whether as a freelancer or a permanent member of the team.
Amit is thorough and organised and can be trusted to deliver projects at a fast pace and get on with people at all levels. He has great attention to detail and makes sure things are thoroughly documented and reported whilst maintaining great day-to-day hands on relationship with client services, developers, designers, creatives and user experience architects. He also has a natural flair to develop long lasting professional relationships which makes him a great person to work with. I would recommend Amit as a manager of digital projects and digital people. I have had good feedback that he helps people to better understand digital so that he can get the best results out of them and his projects. Amit is very good at introducing process in any areas where it is lacking which has been demonstrated throughout his appointment at Publicis Chemistry.
Amit is a great Senior PM with a strong technical background. He is very versatile, adapted quickly to agency culture and is extremely hard working. His client side experience gives him a process driven edge and highly organised approach.
We worked on a challenging project that changed methodology to Agile half way through. Amit systematically dealt with the issues and went the extra mile to ensure everyone was happy and signed up to the new plan effectively managing a difficult situation and some strong personalities.
Amit is cool under pressure and always helpful when working under tight deadlines and difficult circumstances. He proved to be a valuable asset to the team, ensured that all challenges were summounted and all campaign requirements were dealt with as speedily as possible. In short, Amit was helpful, knowledgeable and proactive.
Amit is a dedicated PM, with a clear passion for digital. It was clear from the get-go that Amit possessed a lot of theoretical knowledge which he was keen to put into practise. He had to deal with quite a few challenges on the projects we shared, but was always looking to get the best solutions/results for the team.
Amit is a very efficient and proactive Project Manager, together we've worked on very tight and high pressure deadlines achieving great results with all the support and resources necessary to do it so. It was a great pleasure to work with Amit, his personally and skills makes him a natural in his field. I would have no problem in recommending and working with Amit again.
It was a pleasure to work again with Amit in my most recent assignment at Southern Cross Healthcare Group plc. As in his previous role, Amit did an excellent job. He worked extremely hard to deliver on time and on budget work packages. The first package included an extensive website development programme to address some functionality issues which was complemented by a very effective search engine optimisation strategy which catapulted Southern Cross to the 1st Rank on page 1 of Google Search. Other work packages included the development of new analytics, sales and conversion reporting processes; the development of a PPC campaign and the integration of a bespoke CRM system with the corporate website. Amit was very responsive to all stakeholders's comments and suggestions and very focussed in delivering his work, ensuring very high levels of service in terms of speed of response. I was, once again, impressed with his expert knowledge. I hope to be able to work with him again.

I worked with Amit whilst at Scott Wilson, he was a hard working, enthusiastic and conscientious colleague. Despite tough times and pressures he continued to deliver. His keen eye for design and technical knowledge helped him to succeed. I would not hesitate to work with him in future.
Having managed Amit directly for over a year I found him to be a knowledgeable, honest, loyal and trust worthy Project Manager. Amit has delivered a number of online projects on time and under budget managing change and expectations in a difficult environment.

I frequently work with Amit with regards to our company's intranet and website. He has deep and practical wisdom on digital media design and probably one of UK's best digital media practitioner of his generation.
Amit is a highly motivating PM - not afraid to get stuck in and understand any problem in order to deliver the best solution possible and work with people in order to achieve the best result. Amit’s incredibly dedicated and hard working ethic makes projects great to work on together and ultimately contributes to their success.
Amit always knows what he needs to do and makes sure that you understand what is expected to achieve the goals and objectives specified. I had no problems working with Amit and would recommend him and work with him again.
I very rarely make personal recommendations on LinkedIn, but I have made an exception for Amit. A highly capable manager, Amit recognises when to leverage the skills of his own team and when to rely on the experience and capability of carefully selected partners. Amit has a strong grasp of social networking technologies and the digital business arena. An asset to any e-marketing or digital team he is very focused on the delivery of both personal and business objectives.
Amit created and managed the development of Scott Wilson's website utilising his creativity to build a superb e-marketing tool to communicate the company's marketing materials to clients. Amit was always responsive to ideas and queries during the development process and worked hard to satisfy sometimes conflicting requirements from different parts of the business.
Amit has all the requisite skills necessary to effectively manage the E-Marketing team. Honest and focussed with a sharp eye for budgetary control, he also has a good sense of humour to boot.
Amit runs a really great team at Scott Wilson Group plc, and is an inspirational and motivational Web Manager. A pleasure to do business with, Amit gives criticism when due and heaps praise when deserved. He also drives a hard commercial bargain, but is great fun to spend time with socially as well.
Amit Anand joined the Corporate Development team of Scott Wilson Group pIc, the London-listed engineering consultancy, in May 2007. Scott Wilson Group plc, with over 6,000 members of staff, is an international consultancy offering engineering professional services in the transportation, property, environment and natural resources sectors. From its UK headquarters it currently controls a worldwide network of 80 offices. Reporting to the Corporate Development Director, Amit used his unique combination of creative skills and technical expertise to scope, design, build, and re-launch a new corporate website which reflected Scott Wilson's new pIc status. Throughout the project, Amit and his team worked very closely with the Group Brand Manager to ensure that the new site was on brand. Introducing the most up-to-date technologies and industry best practices throughout the Group, the new website was designed to be inspiring, informative, impactful and easy to navigate. To ensure ease of use for all the page owners, Amit also has developed a bespoke content management system which he called 'Assembler'. To further strengthen Scott Wilson's presence online, Amit developed a very effective search engine optimisation strategy. The installation of leading analytics software, WebTrends Analytics, has enabled Amit to track the results of this new SEO strategy. As of November 2008, in eleven months, traffic to our website has increased by 393% and 300% respectively in page views and number of hits. The average visit duration has also increased from 4 minutes to 5 minutes 29 seconds. I am also pleased to confirm that, since its launch in November 2007, a number of sale leads which originated from the web have now been converted into contracts with a monetary value in excess of £1 million. Following on from the successful re-launch of the UK corporate website, Amit used his proven project management skills to spearhead the development off our additional multi-lingual regional websites in Eastern Europe, China, Hong Kong, India and South East Asia Again, his main aim was to ensure brand integrity. As his Director, I have received numerous praises both from the engineering community and from functional directors for his input into their internet-based initiatives. His talent, hard work, dedication, innovative approach and his enthusiasm for going the extra mile were rewarded with a substantial discretionary bonus in August 2008. Scott Wilson's website was shortlisted in November 2008 by Construction News for an award in the category "Best use of a website".
Amit is an immensely capable emarketing professional. He has led his team highly effectively, transforming, in the process, Scott Wilson's web presence from the humble state it was in on his arrival in 2007 to something that can legitimately be described as the benchmark for the sector.
I have worked with an array of managers in both design and editorial work, each with their own methods. Amit, for me, has been both an inspirational manager and a good friend. He puts the motivation of his team equal to that of his own, which has kept us all working closely and efficiently. No matter how heavy the scheduling may appear, Amit always ensures there is time.
Amit is naturally driven and focused which is a fantastic cocktail for success. I enjoyed working with Amit on projects because of his creative flare and sense of humour.
