“Barbara knows how to manage change... both in organizations and individuals. Having worked with her for over 20 years she never disappoints any client with her energy, commitment and above all innovative ideas which solve the most complex of problems.
This she does with an air of calm and a good smattering of humour. Her knowledge of the organizational development world is second to none... and her coaching expertise works across international as well as hierarchical boundaries...
As you might guess I have no hesitation in recommending her for the most demanding of projects.”
“The support provided by Paterson Consulting during a recent change programme was consistently professional, reliable and client focussed. I would not hesitate in using this service again.”
