"Julia was on hand to support me in a situation that arose out of normal hours and did not hesitate to give me all the advice and tools I needed to manage the situation appropriately. I was so pleased with her handling of this situation I have decided that I need Julia and her support on a more regular basis and I look forward to working with her in the future."

Julia F, Business Owner

"I cannot speak highly enough about Julia and her team. She has been an immense help to our charity when we were in dire need of H.R. assistance. She has instigated a new HR system with Breathe and sorted out all of our policies and personnel files. We have had many difficulties over the past couple of months and Julia has always been there to help."

Chriss M, CEO

"I've worked with Julia as Canterbury's Chief Executive since 2006. Having been a HR head of service earlier in my career I know a good HR expert when I see one, and Julia fits the bill. She combines knowledge and experience of really tricky issues with a pragmatic approach that positively helps managers get through their HR problems. She has a reassuring manner that instills confidence. I'm very happy to recommend her."

Marc P, Business Owner

"I have to say I had rather stuck my head in the sand over making staff redundant , but Julia's free webinar set out everything I needed to know and do in an easy to understand format so that i felt empowered to take the necessary steps!

Thank you so much too for accepting my call to reassure myself that I was taking the right steps!"

Glynnis W, Business Owner

"Julia and her team have helped shape and deliver our HR and OD strategy, ensuring that the business adapts to a more modern approach to people management, change and organisational development.


Leading a shared service, this is not always an easy task as organisations pull in different directions, but Julia's commitment to ensuring the business can effectively deliver its goals and operational model aspirations have always been 100%. Julia has a particular skill at providing critical challenge and thought to senior management - executive, CEO/COO levels - which is not an easy role to play, although one Julia is very successful at."

Peter D, Director

"Thank you for your time on the redundancy webinar this morning. I learnt so much and it was very useful information. If you are hosting any future webinars I will certainly will be attending again."

Audrey B, HR Professional

"Julia has recently offered her personalised and professional support during a complicated HR situation. Not only was her advice pragmatic and supportive it was also incredibly strategic.

From a position of uncertainty Julia was able to deliver the outcome I wanted in a relatively short space of time. I would have no hesitation in suggesting Julia for anyone's HR needs.

She's a class act."

Gavin R, Business Owner

"I've worked with Julia for many years now through restructures, grievance and performance issues. I have always found her to be incredibly knowledgeable, understanding and insightful.

She approaches all situations with a calm integrity and is not afraid to provide much needed challenge and critical thinking to ensure that your chosen path, and her advice to help you along that route, are as robust as possible.

She can always be relied on for trusted, sound advice and is a pleasure to work with."

Caroline H, Director

"I would highly recommend Julia and her employment guidance. Through this difficult time with the pandemic I was unfortunately made redundant and was obviously anxious with this.

Julia was really kind and so helpful throughout the whole process. She is very responsive and efficient in what she does. Please do not hesitate to reach out for help, it's so totally worth it!!! Thank you so much!!!"

Lucy R, Business Development Manager

"Julia is a dynamic Senior HR Professional not afraid to push the boundaries in order to create change.

Her can do attitude means she is able to take her ideas and implement them successfully. I'd happily recommend Julia."
