Testimonials

When our organisation commenced its diversity journey in 2014 we started with a policy & a blank sheet of paper.  Bev was fundamental in providing us with guidance around how we could develop a strategy and a workplan to engage with the business and create an understanding on why a focus on diversity & inclusion was critical to achieving our vision and position us to respond to fundamental changes in our industry.  We believe diversity & inclusion sparks innovation and challenges traditional ways of thinking.  The support Bev provided us was fundamental in not only enabling us to win awards but challenged us to recognise further gaps and maintain the momentum of our diversity & inclusion programme.

Paul McCloskey Group Manager Human Resources, Vector Ltd

As a small business with a commitment to Diversity and Inclusion, Bev has provided us with the kind of guidance and support that can only be given by someone who is truly immersed and invested in the sector. On a personal level as a woman Bev has inspired me as a leader with her knowledge, integrity, honesty and compassion.  Coffee Educators and Able Coffee Collaborative look forward to being a part of the continued impact Bev has on our communities and wider society in NZ.

Claire Mathieson Founder & Boss Lady of Coffee Educators

Bev’s clear personal passion for diversity and inclusion, coupled with her ability to confidently present that perspective in a compelling, business-appropriate, way really help in getting the issues that matter noticed.

Adrienne Miller General Manager, Corporate Services, Watercare

I have had the pleasure of enjoying a long partnership with Bev on many Diversity initiatives and have found her passion, commitment and leadership in the Diversity & Inclusion space inspiring.

Martin King Global General Manager, People and Culture, Magic Memories

The issues of Diversity and Inclusion have become real issues for the Business community and Public Service over the last decade. Bev will work with your organisation in a way that ensures behaviour changes that reflect todays values and consequences that demonstrate those changes make good business and institutional sense.

Michael Barnett Chief Executive, Auckland Chamber of Commerce

Bev has been a great advisor, challenger and encourager of all our Diversity and Inclusion activity, from the work on strategy to the programmes we delivered and the support and training we needed. The real difference Bev has brought was to see the whole world of Diversity and Inclusion but also to be practical and realistic on what really counts.

Antony Welton Human Resources Director, Vodafone NZ
