Working with Trish

“I found working with Trish to be such a rewarding experience. Trish encouraged me to focus on the long term view and prioritise key concerns. With her assistance I was able to reach a better understanding of high level strategic issues. Most of all, she helped me to explore different options, where I had seen only one, so that I could find solutions to complex and challenging problems.”
