Debbie has expertise in all areas of the merger process, providing reports, project plans and briefing materials as well as demonstrating expertise in chairing and facilitating some tough meetings. Best of all though was Debbie’s intelligent approach in all matters and genuine support for our project.
Debbie demonstrated great patience during the conflict coaching sessions to arrive at a positive outcome for a very complicated scenario. She was able to build a quick rapport and was sensitive and responsive in her communication. She was able to listen and ask questions to better understand the issue at hand.
With her background in community sector management Debbie has been able to skilfully guide and assist us with a range of management projects, including strategic planning, tender writing, policy development, organisational reviews and community consultations.
