Gill has been working with me at board level with T & A Group since 2007. As second in command she has assisted me to grow the group year on year. She instinctively knows where we need to get to and how to get there; focusing on the key factors and areas required. She is unflappable, measured and unbelievably practical and logical cutting through to core issues, with an open questioning system mind. She is a wonderful asset to any organisation, works hard efficiently and over delivers on everything she does.

Over the years Gill has provided me with sound and practical advice and support, her ability to grasp the overall view of the whole organisation and zone in on the key issues has always proved invaluable. She also has a knack to deliver solutions to problems in a practical straightforward manner yet with diplomacy, adapting to the environment she is dealing with.
Veronica Bryson - Financial Controller
Struggling to retain staff and finding someone with the overall skills to pinpoint and assist to rectify the problem. Gill was a breath of fresh air, so calm and efficient she seamlessly blended in. She worked with us to identify key problems and put into place the systems and procedures required, training all key staff with dramatic results.

I was sceptical about bringing in outside help when recommended to contact Gill. It was best thing I did she just got it and knew how to deal with and adapt to all the different personalities to get the job done.
