Uzma was the ideal consultant for the strategic-innovation project we were doing for a major government department. She has the ability to mix a strategic decision-maker’s perspective with deep academic-level insights, to produce strategic think-pieces that benefits both the client and their stakeholders. Someone I would definitely work with again and would put right up alongside the client.

Darrell Jaya-RatnamDarrell Jaya-Ratnam, Managing Director at DIEMconsulting

Uzma ran a fantastic workshop on Change Management for a group of workstream leads at Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust. I found Uzma a pleasure to work with while we were organising the workshop. Uzma put in a lot of careful preparation for the day and we were rewarded with an informative session in the morning on how we can align change management processes with our approach to project management.

Uzma has held an outstanding performance record during the period (2002-2008) in the international roles she had at BP. We worked together in 3 different capacities. She managed Telecommunications services & change projects, from 2002 to 2003, in MENA region that I support. Her in-depth technical knowledge and ability to challenge convention were the key attributes that helped her deliver that role successfully.
