Style & Approach

Vanessa works collaboratively with businesses, getting to know the organisation and the people so she can provide solutions and advice that work for each individual business. She is the kind of advisor who doesn’t mind if you need a “sense-check” chat out of the blue, and her goal is to leave the organisation able to independently manage and maintain the reward frameworks put in place. Her straight-talking approach can really help cut through the often sensitive issues of reward.
