" I worked with Lisa for around 2 years, when she was Programme Manager for WYCA, on the East Leeds Orbital Route Scheme, which is a £90m project for WYCA and Leeds CC. From day one I found Lisa to be extremely collaborative and approachable, she always focused on solutions which ensured we were able to make the most of the pre construction period and contract mobilisation. Lisa was very visible on site and built a positive relationship with the delivery and leadership teams. We are currently halfway through the scheme and I believe Lisa’s involvement has helped set all parties up for success... she also makes exceedingly good cakes (apparently)."

“I have worked with Lisa over the last few years during her tenure with the West Yorkshire Combined Authority.  In this time, I have been very impressed with her professional manner and the way she deals with all stakeholders, including end users.  I worked closely with Lisa on the East Leeds Orbital Route, a major infrastructure scheme for Leeds City Council where Lisa’s relationship with local and central government, together with her knowledge of funding opportunities brought this substantial scheme to fruition.  She always acts with the best intentions of the project, is calm under pressure and a very likable person. Lisa is an invaluable member of the team and I am more than happy to recommend her to work for an organisation that is looking for a dynamic individual to support and guide them whilst acting with full integrity and professionalism.”

“Lisa has consistently added value to the varied projects that she has supported. Insightful, knowledgeable input is always enthusiastically given, providing a unique expert opinion to inform strategy and delivery goals. Aside from her obvious professional dexterity, it is Lisa’s affable character which sets her apart and makes her an easy addition to any team. Highly recommended”
