“Working with Ella was a joy from start to finish, and watching her work was a revelation. Her organisation and presentation skills are excellent; she addresses large groups with confident ease, and deals with the more vocal participants sensitively but assertively. Ella is one of those rare things - a confident and highly-skilled person who is also a genuinely nice person, easy to get along with, contagiously enthusiastic and fun to be around.”

Jason Prentis, Community Development Officer, Lambeth Council


The Shaw Trust

“Ella was very impressive, most notably the way she led her team and the way she approached the problem with a high degree of professionalism. Ella engaged effectively with a range of Shaw Trust customers and stakeholders to quickly get to grips with a complex problem before presenting a range of impressively ambitious yet practical solutions, many of which have already been implemented. I would have no hesitation recommending Ella to any potential client/employer.”

- Chris Perry, Head of New Markets, The Shaw Trust


Kings College Guildford

"The idea of ‘Service Design’ was something very new to me, but the process Ella undertook was both professional and purposeful and has given us genuine insight into the issues and potential solutions. I have been extremely grateful for the input of energy that she has brought to our school and wider community - this has been really useful as the nights have drawn in. She has left people excited about continuing the journey.”

— Alastair McKenzie, Head Teacher, Kings College
