I worked with Sharon for many years when she was our HR Director. Sharon handled a lot of complex people – me included – with a lot of dexterity and diplomacy, and supported our needs at all staffing levels, handling the good things and inevitable bad things that come up with equal skill and professionalism. Sharon is my very high benchmark for how HR can be managed in a company.

Casey Quinn, Former Director,

PRMA Consulting

Working with Sharon was a pleasure. She combined her expertise and experience with insight and balance, and I felt supported as we worked through various scenarios. She gave me advice, both when I asked, but of even more value, was when she could see I needed help but perhaps I had not yet realised. I also felt that Sharon not only supported with what we needed to do in the immediate, but also made sure that we, within the organisation, were prepared for circumstances as they developed in future. I’d be very pleased to work with Sharon again..

Astrid Fairclough, Programme Director,

Wessex and Dorset Care Records, NHS

Sharon is an exceptional HR professional always on hand to support the business and individuals. She manages to strike the right balance for all parties and worked through some very difficult times for our team. Without Sharon’s support I can say the team wouldn’t have been as successful as it was..

Alastair Burns, Managing Director,

Siemens Healthineers

Thank you so much for your support during your time with us. Your clear and compassionate advice in managing complex HR issues never failed
to help us steer the right path and come to the right resolution. I cannot praise your warmth and professionalism high enough.

Allison Peebles, Head of Nursing,

Salisbury NHS Foundation Trust

I have really enjoyed working with Sharon, she is like a breath of fresh air! Sharon has the ability to bring a no-nonsense and modern approach to HR policy, providing reassurance, a sound knowledge base and an overall sense of calm to difficult situations.

Terri Brady-Meakin, Divisional Head of Nursing - Medicine,

Salisbury NHS Foundation Trust

Working with Sharon over the past few years has been a real pleasure. She has high levels of knowledge and expertise but also the ability to apply sound professional judgement to help manage difficult HR challenges. She is always approachable, responding quickly to questions and uncertainty, but is equally not afraid to challenge poor performance when indicated. She remains a reliable source of counsel, always contributing to the debate, and has been a real asset to our organisation.
