'We hired Marie as an Interim Leader through a period of transition and change in Scotland for Changing Faces and she has been excellent. She has worked with us to develop the strategic plan for Scotland, managing our key resources - financial and people- through this period and supported us with recruitment of a new Head. She has been able to act as a safe pair of hands as well as someone who can develop key opportunities and mitigate challenges. I would highly recommend Marie as an Interim leader'
Becky Hewitt, CEO Changing Faces
'Seamab is not particularly well known as a children’s charity. We identified a clear need to raise our profile and begin fundraising to achieve our ambitions for our charitable work. We were introduced to Marie, who made the complex and challenging field of charity fundraising accessible and much less daunting. She provided us with supportive advice, and helpfully challenged some of our thinking. From this Marie worked with and for us to create a growth strategy that has had great impact over the last few years.'
Joanna McCreadie, CEO Seamab
