It has been a pleasure to work with Paul in the past year. His professional and personal skills are absolutely first-rate. They make him a real asset to the World Bank Group, especially at a time when so many departments are doing their own web pages, databases, publications etc. with little or no coordination and risk costly mistakes by not having adequate capacity in-house.
What has been the most helpful to me has been Paul’s remarkable speed and agility in designing/producing sophisticated desktop publications, Powerpoint presentations, Web page redesigns etc. that can be used to great effect in our department’s marketing and communications work. He is efficient, dedicated, and hard-working, taking on all tasks with a good team spirit even with stress conditions are high. There surely must be a place in the World Bank Group for someone with these attributes.

I was Paul’s manager for about nine months. During this time, Paul has demonstrated excellent web and graphic design and implementation skills and that he works well as part of a team. Paul developed and maintains the World Bank Group – Small and Medium Enterprise internet and intranet websites and the quality of these sites speak for themselves. Paul developed these under significant time pressure, with rapidly changing requirements (in response to our rapidly changing business). Despite these obstacles, his talent and hard work delivered what was required.
Paul also has provided valuable contributions to the SME Departments communication strategy, especially its electronic form, but also in graphics design where he truly excels. Paul also has a very good sense of what the web can (and just as importantly cannot) do – this has proven valuable in our undertakings with our partners outside of the World Bank Group. Paul comes highly recommended as a capable web/graphics design and implementation professional.
Paul has been very practical in helping me find solutions in using the website for management of the programs, in particular, e-business and the China SME lending banking conference web site, which I think is an excellent piece of work.
Paul understands very well the notion of “the BRAND” and has worked very cohesively with the rest of us to create a website which is consistent and logical and user-friendly. It has helped us many times in figuring out which business lines in the department are working properly and which are not because in devising the website we have often had to think about our “strategic” direction. It has often happened that strategic direction and programs such as the ones that I have worked in the SME banking were devised by staff and demanded by the PDFs rather than directly came from the management website has helped us communicate.
Paul has played an important part in putting this content and sifting the content in order for us and our clients to have a user-friendly access to the website. As much as he helped in creating the BRAND for the department, he also contributed toward building the IMAGE of the SME group.
He did an excellent job on creating brochures for the Corporate Performance Awards program. It is by far the most creative piece I have seen in IFC’s sometimes sterile culture, which shows that he certainly does think outside of the box. Now for the SME Department, that is one requirement that is necessary.
I have known Mr. Paul Turner for more than 10 years. Mr. Turner has more knowledge about web design, web marketing, and website search optimization than anyone else I know. But more importantly, he has the sincere desire to help the people he works for. His advice is consistently genuine with his client’s best interests always first in mind. When working with Mr. Turner, we never felt he was a business partner, but rather a good friend. He truly wants to see others succeed, and that seems to be the greatest motivation for his work, which is seen in the positive results he produces for his clients.
Classic Homes currently owns numerous domain names and hosting plans with Mr. Turner’s web hosting company, Houddini Design Studios. We have had excellent service for the last 5 years and would not consider moving to any other company. During the few times we have had minor issues, Mr. Turner and his team have always responded quickly to correct the problems. Mr. Turner is someone we turn to for technical help, support, and advice and he has always made himself available to advise us, even when it was beyond his duties and also during his busiest times.
We believe in Mr. Turner’s abilities to improve the sales of any business and would strongly recommend his services. Please feel free to contact me for more information.
Over the years, the teams I have managed have worked with Paul Turner rather extensively. His work is always first class, on time and within budget. In addition, he has been able to help these teams see their requirements in interesting and new ways. A great asset when the work gets complex.
Paul enabled me to have a great website for a very reasonable amount of investment and I was very happy with the results!

I’ve been very pleased with Paul’s ability to produce creative and functional web-based products. His willingness to get the job done with 110% quality was reassuring. Also, Paul’s range of global service work impresses me.
