Maria is strategic, organised and outcome focussed thinker who I have hugely enjoyed working with to deliver a programme work within a charity we are both trustees of.
A key challenge for many NGOs is an endless field of work and scare resource with which to deliver. Maria balances aspiration and innovation with a fiercely practical streak about what is achievable, and the need to prioritise if an impact is going to be made. She articulated a vision, and delivered a plan, briefings, events, output publication, and comms; and again as is common in third sector that combined leadership with ‘rolling up sleeves’ to deliver some of the individual tasks.
We worked at pace, including much of the project remotely and digitally, and as well as a great result (which we’ve now been asked to replicate for a group in London) it was just great fun working with a personable and enthusiastic person like Maria
