“We brought in Zoe following a high-profile communications crisis and transphobic social media trolling in Summer 2021, which was extremely challenging and distressing for our small staff team. She led an in-depth retrospective wash-up with the senior team to identify strengths and gaps in our response, helped us develop more robust plans, policies and governance, and led a series of workshops to stress-test the new processes and build skills and confidence across the team.

Zoe was a joy to work with and quickly won the confidence of the whole team. She is flexible, brings a wealth of knowledge and experience in the field, and takes a proportionate approach to the needs and capacity of a small charity. She also offered great ‘aftercare’ and ongoing direct engagement with me as CEO, which was highly valuable and provided a confidential space to process trauma, share leadership challenges and move forward positively from the crisis comms incident. Overall, thanks to Zoe we feel well placed to weather any future storms!”
