"Sally understood her Facilitator's role not just as running a 3-day show, but engaged with the programme team to an extent I had never experienced before. Thus she became part of our team and contributed some of the most valuable ideas that made the European Sustainable Cities & Towns Conference in Bilbao most inspiring for the almost 1000 participants"
Stefan Kuhn, Deputy Regional Director, ICLEI Europe
"I was very impressed by Sally’s ability to pull the best out of diverse, sometimes even contradictory expert inputs in the URBACT mobility workstream. I am very proud to have been part of the team led by her and the innovative workshops and reports we produced.  "
Anette Enemark, Tetraplan, Copenhagen
"I was fortunate to have Sally on my team of experts capitalising knowledge on sustainable urban development and designing and delivering compelling events. Beyond being exceptionally professional in the planning and delivery of projects, Sally is superb at moderating group discussions and chairing high level panels. She is a fantastic team player: sensitive to group dynamics, committed and inspirational"
Melody Houk, Projects and Capitalisation Manager, URBACT, Paris
"Sally is an excellent moderator for the Cities Forum.  She is able to connect what has been said back to the main topic and has the ability to summarise the main messages at the same time. She knows when to give a speaker a bit more time or when to interrupt and she does this in a polite friendly way. The speakers feel at ease when she is moderating. Before the Cities Forum 2020 she came with helpful suggestions and concrete contributions which is very valuable as well."
Fiona Wieland, European Commission
"Sally’s skills as a meeting organizer, facilitator and knowledge manager take (EU) networks to another level of effectiveness. She and her reports are inspiring and she is great speaker too; you can depend on her, and it is always a pleasure to work together."
Robert Stussi, International Mobility Expert. Past President, World EV Association

Barbara Cala Lesina, Service Manager, Turning Point ACAPS

Tiago Farias, former Vice-President of EMEL and Professor at Instituto Superior Técnico, Lisbon
"Sally has provided invaluable support and guidance to the Electric Vehicles in Urban Europe network. Her knowledge of European programmes and policy is immense, which combined with her professional, yet approachable manner, has made Sally a pleasure to work with."
Matthew Noon, Project Manager, Electric Vehicles in Urban Europe

Leen Petre, Principal Manager, Media and Culture, Royal National Institute of the Blind

Eva Bergauer, Director, Frankfurt Chamber of Commerce and Industry
"What an unique approach for our French way of thinking ! The interactive workshop facilitated by Sally on “sustainable mobility in business parks” was much appreciated and so productive in taking our work forward."
Adrien SAVARY – Idéa 35 – Brittany Region - France
