Duncan Gibb, Executive General Manager –  Stronger Christchurch Infrastructure Rebuild Team (SCIRT)

“Karin was engaged by SCIRT, a temporary organisation tasked with rebuilding the horizontal infrastructure in Christchurch after the earthquakes, to help develop our end to end business processes. We had a very short time frame to do this and there was very little certainty in terms of what we were doing or how we were to do it. Karin helped us steer through the ambiguity to develop what has become a very efficient and effective organisation.

Karin’s enthusiasm and energy is abundant and her ability is apparent to everyone she meets. She can quickly build confidence in a team and her ability to pull information and build consensus is of benefit to anyone. We have high confidence in Karin and would recommend her highly.”

Stuart Wakerley, Project Manager, SMS – Christchurch Polytechnic Institute of Technology (CPIT)

“I worked with Karin on a major project in the education sector. The project required representatives from several New Zealand Polytechnics and Institutes of Technology to work together to produce common processes that would support the introduction of a new Student Management System.

Karin’s role involved facilitating workshops that required both extensive business analysis expertise and a high level of emotional intelligence to achieve consensus from potentially disparate points of view. Karin was tireless in her commitment to the project that involved weekly travel to Wellington over a period of 3 months. She produced summary findings from the daily workshops ready for review the next day and contributed to meaningful discussions that kept the project on track.

Karin’s participation was critical to the success of the project and I recommend her to any organisation looking for thoroughly professional business analysis services or mentoring and training support for your own business analysts.”

Roni Leeds, Director, Sales Operations EMEA – Cisco Systems

“Karin was an extremely effective program manager who quickly and completely established rapport and credibility with clients, conducted herself professionally, and produced results that surpassed expectations. I would welcome the opportunity to work with Karin again and would think of her immediately should the possibility present itself.”
