Her attention to detail coupled with good people skills allowed her to win the hearts of the project team which essentially drove the project to a success. Any company would be lucky to have her on the team and I would sincerely recommend Madeleine on any project implementation.” Chiqui Ong, Global IT Director Shared Services at Transcom, January 2015.

“Madeleine is a very focused professional in the field of process and project management and she has the gift of bringing people together. What she stands for as a person is translated into business objectives – in terms of ownership and responsibility and “make it happen”. All with a very good sense of humor and wit; a people’s person. I have had the opportunity to work with Madeleine on a number of assignments at ClientLogic and DHV and can truly recommend her as she brings an extra spark in the organization.” Albert Bakker, Head of ICT Solution Management, 2009-2011.
“Running a service delivery migration project for to move from a managed Service Desk and onsite support to an in house operation in just 3 months and across different Countries required someone with .superior planning and communication skills, tenacity, diplomacy and when needed, a firm hand – both with both senior and more junior levels. Madeleine was the only person we wanted to run this project. Even in the most stressful situations, Madeleine is able to keep her head, and bring a sense of calm and control to any situation and without her running this project it would not have been as successful as it was.” Steven Halfpenny, Europe & Asia IT Delivery Manager, 2009-2010

“Madeleine is one of the few people I know who really can deliver effectively in rapidly changing organizational environments. She contributes in all phases of change management, from concept creation through to detailed design, implementation and finally the embedding of change in an organization.

Madeleine is energetic, systematic and goal-oriented. She is a fabulous person to work with.” Arnold Bos, General Manager Hosted Contact Centre Services, 2005-2007.

Highly recommended for change and project leadership!” Tony Byers, UK Sales Director, 2007.
ClientLogic (now Sitel)
“Working with Madeleine is challenging, rewarding and fun. Challenging because she’s a 100% professional, not only in the work she delivers…but also in the work she expects from the company she works for/with; no result without the required professional input from both sides describes her way of working. Best result from working with Madeleine is when engaging in a longer term relationship; she’s very instrumental in the set-up but, equally important, helps companies to execute as designed. Rewarding because she’s very result oriented and requires very little steering to fully understand the requirements and deliver above expectations. Fun as, through her experience and people orientation, she knows how to balance push and pull, always demonstrates great understanding of priorities and handles organizations, actvities and people with flair and the right sense of humor so that all involved achieve their goals…with a smile on their face”. René van Eijkelenburg, Chief Client Management Officer, 2001-2004.
AT&T-Unisource (now BT)
“Madeleine is enthousiastic, a strong and self confident woman, with a natural way of dealing with complex issues not just focussing on technology and processes but also dealing with the people factor. This makes her an effective process and change manager”. Chris van Iersel, managed Madeleine, 1998-1999.
“Professionally, Madeleine brings very positive energy and results to bear on all situations. I feel fortunate to have spent approximately 4 years working both directly and indirectly with Madeleine in the area of process definition and process improvement. I am impressed with her attention to detail, her ability to engage and enpower teams of individuals and the high quality results that have been the outcome of all dealings that I have had with her. On a personal note, Madeleine always brings a very positive, upbeat attitude to all that she does. I feel very fortunate to have shared a brief moment in my life and career with Madeleine and look forward to a continued friendship. Best of luck to her.” David Will, Billing Analyst, 1996-1999.
“Madeleine is a force to be reckoned with…in a good way! I worked with her during our time in AT&T Unisource when we were developing and deploying business processes for this newly-formed joint venture company. Madeleine was responsible for overseeing the development and implementation of the Billing processes. This was a new role for her at that time but she rapidly understood the techniques and the approach required and harmonized this with ensuring that business objective were incorporated in to the process designs. Madeleine has a great aptitude for engaging her team members in the activities whilst at the same time not falling in to the trap of paralysis by analysis. She is very action-oriented and knows when to consult others or to take decisions to ensure momentum and progress. Madeleine is also a unique and interesting person. Her approach to business and to life is always fresh and inspiring. I highly recommend her to any client to help them look at situations from new perspectives.” Martin Kelly, Manager Process Management, 1996-1999.
