"I have been drawing on Fran's skills for more than a decade. She has facilitated team building days, enabled leadership reviews and led a six month strategic planning process. This latter project was a comprehensive agency wide engagement involving internal and external stakeholders nationally. Fran is a delight to work with, she is contemporary, engaging and fun, plans well and can be relied on to deliver on expectations. As a facilitator of discussion she provides a safe and well managed context that encourages personal sharing and self disclosure"
