“I had the pleasure of working with Louisa between March and December 2015. Louisa was already working on a number of strategic leadership development programmes within Credit Suisse; and it seemed appropriate to involve her with our particular programme – she had already developed a great insight into areas of the bank and would be able to provide good continuity. From my very first meeting, with Louisa, I was struck by her incredible professionalism, as well as her deep knowledge of the subject. This, combined with her flair and infectious energy provided us with a winning combination when driving out our leadership programme. She has an innate ability to demystify subjects, engage with staff at all levels and bring topics to life. This she does with great humility, and with enough humour to help make the journey an enjoyable one. In all respects Louisa is an exemplary consultant and professional with whom I would always welcome the opportunity to work with.” December 2015
