“Eleanor delivers. She comes up with a coherent and sensible plan for what you need to get the results you’re after and then she just does it. It’s fabulous to have her on your team. She works collaboratively and with authority, is brilliant at influencing and realistic. Eleanor works really quickly and is highly intelligent. She spotted gaps we hadn’t seen and added more value that the deliverables we asked for. It’s a pleasure to work with Eleanor.”
