Lesley recently helped us prepare for and facilitate our strategic planning workshop. Her contribution was immense, in terms both of process development and workshop delivery. Her engaging and participative preparation and facilitation techniques were particularly effective and appreciated greatly by staff at all levels of the organization. There is little doubt that Lesley’s work with the country office provided important impetus and direction at a critical time for CARE in Sudan at this time.
I worked with Lesley in two assignments. The first one was on a feasibility analysis of resource transfer for UNRWA North Management Unit and the second one was on restructuring and reorganization of UNRWA Relief and Social Services Program.
Lesley was an inspiring person who knows what she wants and deliver quality services. She is committed, hardworking and enthusiastic. I learned a lot from her and hope to work with her on other assignments.
Lesley is a highly professional consultant with strong integrity who managed to lead " a stormy" team" into constructive dialogue over the various stages in the purposeful team training.
The result and the change seen are remarkable and has resulted in a high performing task-oriented team. All guidance and training on top of it, were done over a very short period of time.
Lesley was a key factor in helping us deliver a highly successful staff conference for all our partner organisations. Her delivery style was spot on, she provided us with a broad range of delivery options from which to choose and helped ensure we knew exactly what we wanted to achieve from the day.- DJ, Partnership Manager, South London CVS Partnership
Lesley helped me structure the problems and frustrations I was facing with my professional life, when I couldn't see the wood for the trees. It allowed me to gain the distance and objectivity to identify what I really was and wasn't happy about, helping me considered options that I would otherwise have written off, and see new alternatives. I regained control of things I felt were controlling me. I couldn't have asked for a better coach to guide me through that.- VT
I had great support and useful learning about the process of facilitation - getting participation in a big and diverse group, and when to step in or stand back. It was very good to work with Lesley – she certainly provided support that I was not getting from within the organisation and I think led to a workshop well delivered and received.- Regional Director of an INGO
With Lesley’s guidance before, during and after the retreat, she ensured the country strategic planning process was creative, engaging and challenging for all those who participated. She guided us to define clearly the issues which face us and the steps we can take to overcome them. She did an excellent job of guiding us through some tricky conversations and making sure everyone’s views and comments were taken into account.- DB, Programme Director, CAFOD
Lesley is a highly skilled facilitator and trainer: she is engaging, warm and very human in her style, with an in-depth knowledge of her subject. She trained me in a specialised area of facilitation, and made the training practical and enjoyable, with a good sense of timing and an impressive ability to respond to questions and comments from participants. I have no hesitation in recommending her.- SR, Freelance facilitator and improvisor
