“Annette joined Teatro Vivo on Twistov, an outdoor, immersive interactive experience that took place down dark alleys and side streets in London. As such it was not a straight forward production but an intricate and complex work that required careful and creative management. Annette embraced the project and thrived on the challenges. It was a joy to work with her and I look forward to doing so again in the future.”

“I had the pleasure of working with Annette during the delivery of decibel performing arts showcase 2009. Her diligence and foresight were second to none. She has an incredible perceptive ability to create and enhance strategic problem solving solutions reaching the desired objective. With an unwavering passion Annette is dedicated to any task she applies herself to with intense fortitude. Her manner is always pleasant and very professional.”

“Annette has provided The Institute for Creative and Cultural Entrepreneurship (ICCE) with excellent research in 2017 in very diverse areas. Including a review of UK performing arts companies need for new management skills as a consequence of cultural policy initiatives. This was insightful, comprehensive and robust research produced on time and for an international audience. The quality of the work was further informed by a real in depth understanding of the sector. Annette has also researched profiles for ICCE on the creative industries of Central Asian countries; this is an area hard to source and to report on, mindful of political sensibilities. These were used effectively to brief British delegates for a British Council conference focusing on Creative Astana in November 2017.  We look forward to working further with Annette in the future.”
