I have connected with Ali since we worked together at NEXT Ltd over 20 years ago. During that time she developed a reputation as a well respected and liked practitioner. She had a broad knowledge across all of HR but was especially skilled at building relationships at senior levels with a highly professional and straightforward approach. Since then we have maintained a genuinely valued relationship as she continues to provide insightful and thought-provoking advice and coaching to my business and worklife. She has a motivating approach to leadership and developing people with an innate understanding how organisations can connect their people needs to their business plans. .
