Mike helped us plan out and build a solid road map for the implementation of PLM 360. With Mike's guidance and along with challenging me on what I was trying to achieve, we have built a system that is now the main vein of the departments data, workflow and revision control environment. Mike is extremely professional, down to earth, easy to get along with, and passionate about his work. I would have no issues recommending Mike to anyone who is looking to implement a Product Life Cycle, Product Data Managment or Cloud based CAD system

Stuart Wells, Product Development Manager at Astro Lighting Ltd

I have worked or dealt with with Mike for over 20 years in various organisations. Mike has a broad understanding of how to improve business operations within the manufacturing and design environments. He is an excellent communicator and possesses the necessary drive to get things done. Over the years, i have looked to Mike for assistance in many applications and he has always delivered. Always a professional and always a pleasure to work with. I look forward to working with Mike again in the future

Chrys Chrysostomou, Managing Director at Security Seal Technology

I have known Mike for many years, first as a colleague at Parker Hannifin for over 14 years working together to coordinate the roll out of CAD systems, Product Data Management systems and finally Product Lifecycle Management systems. Mike has excellent technical and organizational skills, exhibits a high level of integrity and professionalism, and has always been an asset to everyone he works with. After Mike joined Autodesk his enthusiasm for the development of the projects he worked on was always evident when we discussed the product portfolio

Mike Russo, Technical Resource Manager at Parker Hannifin Corp




As a small flexible company we wanted to implement a PLM system which gave us the strategic benefits of a PLM without being a burden on our limited human resources. Mike helped steer us through the process of setting up and tailoring the PLM360 platform to our needs. He understood the way we work and the challenges we face; together we crafted a solution which enhances our capability whilst being complementary to our existing business practices.

Chris Holden, Head of Design at Loowatt

Muncaster were looking to leverage the ease of managing innovation, reducing compliance risk, ensuring conformity, speeding time to market for new products and managing our supply chain. PLM 360 is simple to configure and the ease in which we can provide access to customers and suppliers were the overarching attributes that best fit our long term and immediate strategic needs. This along with the specialist help and initial training to ease our transition that we received from Mike, really made what in my previous experience can be a long, painful and expensive implementation process, into a fun and pleasurable experience. It's not often you can say that about PLM!

Lloyd Pennington, Muncaster Technologies founder and CEO

PLM360 has been a catalyst for change within Willerby Holiday Homes and has been key to operational improvements. Mike's knowledge of Autodesk PLM360 is only surpassed by his enthusiasm for the product. He takes the time to get you know the issues and provides a clear path to resolve these where possible with PLM360. Working with Mike on the video shoot was a pleasure, he took the time to put us all at ease and to get to know the business. What we have been left with is a video that shines the light on the progress made within the Willerby Holiday Homes and our journey, not only focusing on the work done with PLM360, but taking into account all our operational improvements.

Howard Dawson, IT Manager at Willerby Holiday Homes




Mike's commitment to his work is without equal. He excels professionally at all tasks related to Engineering Systems Project Management and personally with his legendary interpersonal skills. His drive in life is clear and it is a pleasure to work with him as he is reliable, knowledgeable and approachable

Bruno Fairy, Corporate Team Leader - CAE & Animation at Parker Hannifin

I experienced Mike as a very professional and enthusiastic colleague at Parker. When he joined Autodesk I worked with him again where he showed his ability to connect people of different specialism to make a project a success.

Maarten Weers, CAD Manager IT Core Competency team EMEA at Parker Hannifin

I had the privilege of working with Mike as product managers for the Autodesk Fusion Lifecycle product. Mike is an amazing communicator and customers love working with him. He has excellent technical knowledge of PLM and excellent understanding of the customer business processes. I thoroughly enjoyed working with Mike and I highly recommend him

Hagay Dvir, Sr. Product Manager, Product Lifecycle Management at Autodesk




I know very few in the industry that combine experience, thirst for knowledge, and a passion for his craft as Mike Watkins. I worked with Mike while launching Autodesk Fusion Lifecycle, where we were handed a seemingly impossible task of developing 50 customer references in the first year on the market. Mike played the role of sales, marketing, product manager, implementation expert, trainer, and evangelist all at the same time. Mike led the way in the development of the applications in the Autodesk Fusion Lifecycle App Store, which remains as the only one of its kind in the industry. I can't imagine having achieved our goals without Mike on the team. He's an asset to any organization, and glad to call him a friend

Rob Cohee, Manager, Manufacturing Technical Marketing

Mike has a great combination of vision and execution. He understands the design and manufacturing processes and what is necessary to continuously improve the process while at the same time understands the complexities of implementing new systems and technologies. He can think big picture but still maintain attention to detail that he can execute. I highly recommend him. I look forward to working with him side by side again in the future

Derrek Cooper, Director of Product Management - Digital Engineering

In all the time I've worked with Mike I can honestly say that he stands out as an excellent performer, a professional representative of his employer, an expert practitioner of within his industry and a good friend. Mike has always placed the best interests of his team and employer first and has never hesitated to go the extra mile to ensure a good result. He's quick to adapt, keen to move beyond his comfort zone and is a good motivator for the rest of his team

Stephen Hooper, Senior Director of Manufacturing Strategy and Business Development at Autodesk




I have worked together with Mike in a big Enovia PLM roll-out project. Mike is easy to work with not only due to his great personality but also due to his being professional and supportive at all times. He has great technical skills and a good understanding of business. He can easily take in complex scenarios and communicate them in a way that is easy to understand for the organization. His way of working with people, listen to people and treat people makes him a pleasure to work with

Yvonne Sundell, Senior Project Manager at Siemens Industry Software AB

I've been fortunate to work with Mike in multiple roles, firstly as a customer, and latterly as a colleague at Autodesk. What is obvious from both experiences is that Mike approaches everything he does with integrity. In all situations, his attitude, enthusiasm and honesty were the same, pipped only by his enthusiasm and passion for what he does. It's also always been fun to work with Mike, and his attitude to work, social media, marketing, sales and everything else that goes with this role is something that I respect and have learned from. Wouldn't hesitate in recommending him.

James Austin, Implementation Leader at BIM.Technologies

Mike is detail oriented, a perfectionist, everything he delivers is of a very high standard.

Saoirse Colgan, PLM 360 Team Lead at Suretank




I had been thinking about re-designing our website for a few months, and after talking to Mike I knew that he was the guy for the job. What I liked best is that he understood what I wanted from the very start, and we had the site live in no time at all. Cheers Mike, I hope we continue working together for a long time to come.

Mrs Chapman, Leaside Kindergarten Manager

I employed Mike to design and build my website from concept through to the finished article. My previous site was old (not designed by Mike) and had become stale with little traffic. The new site, by comparison is cool and does everything I need it to do. It has me out there in the cyber market place and my enquiries are way, way up since deciding to use Mike Watkins Web Services. Thank you Mike, and you are my first choice when I feel I need a re-design. I am chuffed to bits with the attention the new site is drawing.

Phil Lynch, Phil Lynch Photographer

Nutz & Jackie, Nutz Tattoo

Thanks Mike....from fuddydud to dude" I wanted 'whistles, buzzers and bells' and that's exactly what he delivered! Mike is professional, resourceful, and creative. If there is something you don't think of, he will. There are lots of designers out there but Mike has the edge. I have no hesitation in recommending, he always delivers.

I was really impressed by how Mike made the process of reserving a unique domain name, e-mail address and then professional looking website simple and effective. He was able to guide me as a novice in this area through the key points in a proactive and helpful manner, always willing to offer impartial advice. From my first contact with Mike, I felt that his customer service was excellent, and was pleased to progress the creation of a new website. The finished article delivers exactly what I wanted. Good luck to Mike in the future.
