Chris BeachPartner at Arcadis

I have worked with Annabelle on a number of occasions and can happily say that she is a focused, reliable, conscientious, intelligent and fun co-worker to have on the team. She has a drive and energy that enables excellent project management and performance, and I would have no hesitation in recommending Annabelle for any future project or assignment.

Neil FranklinProgramme Director at National Skills Academy for Rail (NSAR)

Annabelle’s work project managing the Independent Certifiers (ARUP) functions on the Electronic Ticketing System project in Sydney was outstanding. She demonstrated an expert and highly professional approach to assess compliance of the Vendor. I would recommend Annabelle to manage any project or programme, it was a pleasure working with her.

Doug HowePrincipal Consultant TfNSW Opal Electronic Ticketing System project

As owner and editor of a local magazine I was very much focused on creating content and securing advertisements.  I asked Annabelle to take a look at the sales aspect of the business because my profit margins were running lower than forecast.  Annabelle worked her way through all of my advertising agreements and identified a number of unpaid invoices which made a dramatic impact on profitability.  Sometime later I gave Annabelle a copy of a buy-out proposal and sought her views.  She identified some high risk areas which were hidden in legalese; and recommended I decline the buy-out offer. Annabelle quickly responded to my queries (sometimes in the evenings at weekends) and provided a thorough and indispensable service.

Annabelle worked as Safety Assurance Manager on the $AUD1B Southern Sydney Freight Line, she contributed greatly in her relatively short tenure establishing a very good and clear platform for the project completion. Her excellent attention to detail and organizational skills assisting in developing the direction and framework for the risk and safety compliance programs with the regulator.

Michael ClarkeAustrialian Rail Track Corporation

I worked with Annabelle as part of Arup’s involvement as Independent Certifier (IC) on the $1.2b Sydney Electronic Ticketing System (ETS) Project. As Project Manager, Annabelle managed the IC team responsible for delivering impartial reviews of project deliverables at pre-defined milestones to determine whether completion of each milestone had been achieved in accordance with the requirements of the Project Deed. The IC team comprised of more than twenty personnel from five specialist consulting firms based in Sydney, Brisbane and London. Of particular value was the perspective she brought in reviewing the delivery consortium’s project operations in the US and UK. This required a detailed understanding of sound project management methodology in the context of bespoke commercial and technical requirements for a large transport infrastructure project with a multi-national development footprint. Annabelle has proven herself to be a resilient, capable and driven senior project manager who is able to operate effectively in a challenging consulting environment. Her direct and honest approach has earned her the respect of both colleagues and clients alike.
