I have very much valued the guidance and counsel Lianne has provided to me and the Nulsen team in improving our leadership, strategy and performance. A recent review of our Governance performance undertaken by Lianne has resulted in a robust and succinct plan of action to take our governance maturity and performance to another level.

During a Board review we had identified a need for Board Governance training and engaged Lianne for a one day governance training programme. Lianne structured a very effective programme around our specific needs. Her knowledge on the topic, breadth of experience, facilitation skills and personality in effectively working with a diverse group of Directors, resulted in all attendees rating the programme as extremely beneficial, even Directors with relevant governance experience. It met our needs and lifted subsequent Board performance.

I have worked with Lianne under a number of circumstances, as coach, facilitator, mentor and advisor for some time. Lianne is a strategic thinker and a leader in her field, plus she is a delight to work with. She is insightful, creative and thought provoking and has brought a great deal of knowledge and understanding to my business and to me personally.
