  • We have worked closely with Lisa over the past year and have always found her to be professional in her approach, passionate about her work and highly supportive to others. Bursting with great ideas, a keen collaborator and clearly extremely skilled in her role, Lisa has been a joy to work with. In our experience, she is consistent in her values and always determined to achieve high standards. Highly recommended

  • Lisa and I have worked together for almost 2 years. During that time she has demonstrated she is professional and innovative, not only managing HR matters but also setting up and leading the Employee Voice Team and Middle Managers’ team at Fircroft College. Lisa always thought ahead with what the college might need to support staff, depending on the climate at the time, and was quick to introduce to the college professional development and individual resilience sessions when COVID struck, which received great feedback, helping to keep employees focused and present. Lisa has helped to create an inclusive culture at Fircroft College, encouraging adherence to the college’s mission, vision and values, not being afraid to address issues that may not be aligned. Lisa is knowledgeable about a wide range of HR topics and I have no doubt she will lead the Limelite People Group to great success.

  • I can honestly say that working with Lisa benefitted me in so many ways!! I was always quite lacking in confidence, unsure of my professional identity and I was never really clear about my own career development needs. Lisa must have seen something in me that I didn’t; she supported me to identify my strengths and use them proactively and effectively and this has undoubtedly contributed to my own career progression and clear sense of professional identity. As well as this, Lisa enabled me to work on my own areas in need of development (especially my leadership skills). I have grown in so many ways professionally and I 100% know that Lisa played a pivotal part in this. I really am very grateful!
