Who said that?
"I would recommend Colette to anyone looking for someone who can build
strategic aims and then work to make these actionable. Colette
understands how voluntary organisations run and has a wealth and depth
of experience in this - budgeting, building bids, people management,
project planning, impact measurement etc. "
