I have worked closely together with Stephen Oliver, Partner at Woodfines Solicitors, in a period over a year when selling Top of Town Tours. I experienced Stephen as a strong negotiator who on our behalf, was able to take clever decisions and assist with wise suggestions across foreign business cultures including Denmark, the USA and Spain.
