“I believe that every person is born with talent.” Maya Angelou

I’ve known Beverley for over 7 years. She is a fantastic advocate for people from all diverse groups strategically across the many and varied organisations she has worked with. She knows such a lot and always wants to know more in the field of inclusion. Beverley is definitely someone I would recommend especially around research and strategically embedding diversity and inclusion across your organisation. As a personality she is great to be around as she is upbeat, positive and professional and I’m very much looking forward to working with her again in the future.

I have always been impressed with Beverley’s integrity, knowledge and passion in all that she does. She is an excellent team player and has a strategic mindset which she applies very well to impact practice. She exudes confidence and is clearly a lifelong learner keen to make a difference on a number of fronts. Her maturity, experience and commitment would make her a credit to any organisation.
