Alison did an oustanding jobs at creating and implementing training programs at Mercury Marine. She catered the content to be very relevant and the training process to be very efficient to our day to day work. Her training helped all of my team. In addition, her professional style and unique character made our training programs something special.
Bill McEathron, General Manager Asia, Mercury Marine
Alison provided me with excellent guidance/mentorship during a period where I was considering what my next career role would deliver both to myself personally and on a professional level. Alison taught me to focus on specific areas of previous achievement in order to understand the motivational factors these achievements delivered. During these discussions we also focused on identifying potential deliverables from any of the future roles and if delivering on these roles would bring further benefit to my future career path. Alison brought perspective, capability and personal ambition together throughout these discussions in order to provide a realistic path which could be pursued.
Ross McConachie, Technical Support Manager, Aggreko plc
Alison has great skill to train “talented” people that in lot of cases think there is nothing more to learn. She creates interesting insights and makes people think about planning the next steps. Also the training material Alison uses is original, to the point and holds your attention.
Hans Roelants, Director Benelux & Germany at Brunswick Marine in EMEA
It was an absolute pleasure to work with Alison. Her social skills and engagement in detail in the different fields of the business differentiate her. She is truly global through her international experience and the various languages she speaks. I’d recommend her with any project that requires the very best in all fields of HR.
André Nelles, Sales Manager at TOT-NAUTIC
I worked together with Alison on a number of occasions mainly unusual, difficult and high exposure HR- and Ethics related matters which required the involvement of the legal department. Alison managed to handle these matters in a professional way with the right degree of sensibility required in the specific situations. She is an experienced and talented HR-manager and has a very positive attitude which is well balanced with her pragmatic communication style. Her excellent German language skills were highly appreciated by the German speaking colleagues in our company and facilitated best practice sharing and communication with the HR-managers of our German subsidiaries. I enjoyed working with Alison and would highly recommend her without hesitation.
Sebastian Gilcher, Region Counsel & Director Europe at Masco Europe Sarl
Alison delivered a very professional and motivating leadership course / workshop to our leadership team here at Mercury Marine Australia. Alison engaged the entire group throughout the course and the follow up and support post the training was second to none. As an additional note, I have worked with Alison as a mentor on one of her Lean Six Sigma projects; the quality of the project work was outstanding.
Andrew McLean, Director Supply Chain & Lead Six Sigma at Mercury Marine
Alison was an integral part of the Commercial growth in Europe. [She] quickly grasped the technicalities of the products we manufactured which was crucial during negotiations. On one occasion I was negotiating in Paris with a group who had sent their French and German purchasers. Alison switched between German, French and English seamlessly which allowed me to control the negotiation. It was not only speed but also intonation and nuance. Her people skills meant that people warmed to her and her logical organised approach enabled her to consume tasks with ease. It is very easy to underestimate Alison as she goes about her tasks quietly and without fuss.
Wayne Johnson, Sales Director at Eurotranciatura
Alison is a highly dependable and outgoing HR professional who strives for excellence in all that she does. She is a people person who has a talent for developing a rapport with others at all levels within the business. Alison has a natural flair and ability to coach and support those around her.
Sarah Leahy, Learning & Development Business Partner at Centro, Progression Mentor at Princes’ Trust
I attended a leadership course with Alison. [She] has a wonderful ability to keep a diverse group of people actively engaged. She also managed to get people talk about themselves openly in front of their peers, which is not an easy thing to do. I would attend another course with Alison any time.
