What Others Say About Andrea
- "Andrea and I worked together as senior leaders on a major and unprecedented change programme, which had to deliver some very challenging outcomes against a tight deadline. On many occasions I had to call on Andrea's HR and management expertise to tackle some thorny issues. She was always happy to give me her time, and the advice she gave was always sound, thoughtful and extremely helpful. Her willingness to support others and advocate people as the number one asset in any organisation was refreshing and unrelenting, and I would highly recommend her.” Alex Wilson
