Our organisation has called on Olivia for support with a range of projects and preparation of strategic documents, reports and applications for more than 18 months now and we continue to be delighted with the quality of work she provides. As a not-for-profit organisation, our requirements can be unique and diverse, which is where Olivia’s broad perspective and creative approach really sets her apart from other service providers. Olivia is a joy to deal with, extremely efficient with a fastidious attention to detail and I can’t recommend her enough!”- Kristy Frahm, CEO Burnett Inland Economic Development Organisation (BIEDO) - March 2019
