“We asked Joanna to review our governance. Her skilful, gentle but assertive techniques were pitched at just the right level to ensure our board was challenged but not upset. As a result, the board is re-invigorated and working better than ever. I cannot recommend her too highly.”
John Thomson, Chief Executive, S.H.A.L. Housing

“Joanna’s consultancy work with the Synergy Housing Group and its member organisations has been effective in developing our governance arrangements. She has supported us in establishing the group with her professional advice and skilful facilitation. We have valued her help with the changes we have made.”
