Senior HR Business Partner Google

Cathy and I worked closely together on several projects where she provided her expertise on organisational development, leadership effectiveness and change management. I couldn't have asked for more in a partner. Cathy is an absolute expert in her field but her true skill is in being able to really understand the business, their specific needs and her incredible adaptability to identify the underlying issues and address those in the moment.

Working with Cathy helped me to determine my personal goals given the new stage of my career I was entering, and how I could work to achieve them. I highly recommend Cathy to anyone looking for some guidance on their career direction.

We worked with Cathy for our inaugural The Resilient Leader series for our county secretaries, chairpersons and members of management. This series was designed to provide them with the tools to lead their counties and our Association for the coming year. Cathy was extremely knowledgeable and professional and tailored the series directly to the audience. We would highly recommend her and look forward to working together again in the future.
