“Greta carried out a consultancy assignment for ITF to look at our partnerships and accountability in relation to our programmes work. Greta's extensive expertise and knowledge was used to great effect but it was her consultative style and clear passion for the subject (sustainable use of natural resources) that enabled us to gain the maximum benefit from the work. I would highly recommend Greta for similar work.“
Lorraine Dunk, Director - International Tree Foundation, Crawley Business Centre, Stephenson Way, Three Bridges, Crawley, West Sussex, RH10 1TN, August 2012.
“We have worked with Greta for a number of years and have always found her support and advice invaluable. The largest project we currently implement is a multi-country initiative based in Sierra Leone and Liberia and was developed with her support and funded by the European Commission. Her advice on how to strengthen the project certainly helped us secure the funding from the EC.”
Dylan Mathews, Director – International Programmes, Y CARE International, January 2012.
“I always remember the training with you that we had in Villa Frascati – it was like a gateway for really good understanding of LFA and its goals! Thank you so much for that!”

“Greta showed patience, discretion and tenacity in working to a complex brief to deliver the commission objectives. Throughout the commission she exhibited an appreciation and understanding of the Company’s requirements to build its capacity and meet the requirements of its prospective funding partners. She managed successfully a demanding consultation process to tight deadlines. Her approach to stakeholder consultation was sensitive and comprehensive and delivered maximum engagement. She exemplified skill, professionalism and determination and contributed significantly to the success of the commission and valuable practical recorded outcomes.”
