“Cathy is an exceptional professional that has mentored/coached myself and colleagues through extremely ambiguous times. I have known Cathy for several years and I have personally recommended her as a mentor on a number of occasions. Cathy has an incredible ability to empathise and quickly build trust with senior executives through to frontline officers. A key attribute I believe Cathy has that assists in gaining trust and allowing people to be vulnerable in her calm and caring approach to all conversations.”
