From Flexible Learning Network Ltd

“Nicolás Erdödy was employed as Programme Manager – Open Source Learning Laboratory in our Wellington office between November 2008 and August 2009. As a start-up initiative with a brand new approach to education and training in the field of open source, the project has been highly complex and challenging. Nicolás played an instrumental role in getting the project on a firm footing. He offers a wide range of experience and expertise, a sharp intelligence and entrepreneurial spirit that has added tremendous value to this venture. Nicolás has provided strong leadership on this large, strategically important project and did an excellent job conceptualising the core attributes of the project and deliverables required. I would like to recommend Nicolás relating to open source technologies, e-learning and start-up projects – these areas are his forte.” September 1, 2009. Richard Wyles, Director Flexible Learning Network Ltd

From Ing. Angel Caffa, Uruguay

“Nicolás es un emprendedor nato, con una gran visión para la creación y capitalización de oportunidades de negocio. Por otra parte tiene la flexibilidad de adaptarse a varias áreas. Lo considero también una persona muy valiente, capaz de “quemar las naves” y hacerse cargo de proyectos riesgosos. Por otra parte y aunque esté de más decirlo, es también un profesional recto y honesto, cualidades necesarias para administrar el dinero que terceros están arriesgando, algo muy común en la actividad empresarial.” Ing. Angel Caffa, MSc., MBA, Uruguay. September 2009
