What   the people who commission me say:


“She is realistic but also optimistic in her stance and this helps   overcome the initial scepticism of staff.    She will challenge negative views in a productive way when this is   needed to move things forward.  An   important feature of her approach is the ability to be flexible in the   running of learning events and to make changes in content and timing if this   is needed to enable participation and learning.  She is not fazed.”


“She will safely challenge the status quo and at the same time   facilitate really meaningful learning and development in all aspects of the   work she undertakes.  She has the skill of empowering people to not   only engage, but to be proud of the contributions they make.  Most   importantly it delivered real tangible and measurable results.”


“Alex has worked with us on a range of different initiatives, from   staff training to citizen leadership.  She brings a wealth of   experience and insight to each piece of work, as well as a fantastic level   of commitment and enthusiasm.  Her facilitation skills are truly   impressive, and her contribution to our personalisation work has been invaluable.”
