A few references for consideration:

“Rebecca is quite simply, an outstanding individual to work with. She not only has the skills, knowledge and experience to guide, lead or support simple or complicated strategic planning, legal work and commercial transactions, she does it in a manner which is brilliantly simple to work with. We worked initially together on one project, but I have found her ability to support and guide invaluable – and we have already engaged her to continue working with us on more offshore and UK projects.”

David Batch

“I’ve worked with Rebecca in Australia, New Zealand and the UK in quite different business settings, which demonstrates one of her great strengths to adapt to the current need however always basing her work on the same strong strategic foundation and set of principles she promotes. She brings clarity and perspective with a healthy dose of pragmatism and is a delight to work with. Her blend of strategic discipline linked with an innate future focussed approach means she keeps the business agenda moving forward built on a rock solid foundation. Mix that with a great sense of humour and anyone who works with Rebecca will enjoy both the experience and the inevitable business success she will help bring.”

“Rebecca is the Governance Guru! In support of our AO Status we entered into exploratory discussions with Rebecca. This enabled us to create a framework for Outstanding Governance. We operate in a heavily regulated environment where decision making via processes is critical to our success. Rebecca mentored us to prevent a strategic leadership that engages in tick box exercises. She collaborated to support our culture of excellence. Rebecca enlightened us with clarity on independence, conflicts of interest and has guided the development of internal control system. Our integrated performance, compliance and risk management systems are rigorous and robust as a result. Rebecca is a transparent and efficient governance expert. She is incredibly inclusive and adapts her approach to meet the unique needs of each individual and organisation. She provides clarification with care! Rebecca really is best in class! The consummate professional! ”
