Some Client Comments

These comments are mainly about my scenario workshops work, which were projects to introduce people in the organisations to what scenarios were and how they can be developed to suit their contexts.

“The scenarios have been a very important contribution to our strategic planning. We have enjoyed the association with Maree, whose work has been of a very high standard indeed and delivered, under pressure, in a timely manner.”

— Professor Chris Cocklin, James Cook University, 2012-2013

“Maree was clearly expert ... she was open and honest in her dealings with us and provided excellent reference material and support to questions ... I admire Maree’s ability to distill data into manageable units and draw order from the chaos.”

— Michelle Hayward, (then) Kangan Institute 2008

“A highly positive experience - it was a pleasure to work with a consultant who was always looking to value add what they had promised to deliver.”

— Belinda Wright, (then) Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestries, 2010-2011

“Thinking Futures was flexible and adaptive in altering the scope of the work as we moved forward - this was very helpful.”

— Project Manager, Making VU, Victoria University of Technology, 2007

“Maree’s deep knowledge of the University sector and understanding of trends in libraries was particularly useful, including her contribution to the environmental scanning phase. Her facilitation of the process and final presentation of the report was professional and achieved a good outcome that I was looking for.”

— Philip Kent, Swinburne University of Technology, 2003

“Typical comments regarding your session were thought provoking, stimulating, and allowed for lateral thinking (especially in the workshop session). ”
