Christina has excellently driven forward a programme of consultation involving a diverse range of resident and stakeholder participation and has communicated strongly at many different levels. Christina is extremely personable, flexible and positive in and her willingness to “get stuck in” really shone through. Christina fully understood the needs of the different sectors and Partners involved, delivered on time/in budget and provided sensitive, relevant and thought provoking feedback at all times.

Christina volunteered her substantial Lottery expertise in response to the Covid-19 pandemic. From the off I was struck by her generosity, willingness to adapt and her 'can do' positivity. Christina began by offering up an array of creative, lateral thinking suggestions as to how she might help, listened closely to what was already in place and then adapted her offer to address the most urgent need in a focused and efficient manner. Her written communications were succinct, lightening-fast and highly constructive. Her generosity of spirit was apparent in her willingness to share several valued strategic contacts from her own not-so-little black book. Mentoring two younger women in writing funding applications, Christina and her team operated remotely using a range of file-sharing platforms and communication tools to generate an extraordinary volume of useful funding leads in record time. She was extremely professional while being easy-going and fun to work with.
