I've worked with Diane on our Walworth 2030 Project, funded by Southwark Council. The project looked at the future of Walworth, an area in South London that grapples with development on one side and being among the top 10% disadvantaged areas in the country. Diane managed the Walworth 2030 project as lead consultant, co-developing the research framework, leading on organising and delivering surveys, leading on reports and liaising with the other 5 consultants on the team, as well as liaising with Southwark Council. Without a doubt, this has been one of the best managed and run projects we've delivered, thanks to Diane's diligent approach to project management, research design and delivery capabilities and reporting. The project was kept on track and on budget. I can highly recommend working with Diane.
Diane provided business engagement support as part of a wider multi-disciplinary team to inform the design and delivery of Walthamstow’s Night Time Enterprise Pilot project. She approached the work with enthusiasm and drive and her knowledge and attention to detail ensured a wide range of businesses participated in the project and benefited from it. I feel confident in recommending Diane in supporting high street regeneration projects with business support expertise.
I worked with Diane to develop London Borough of Tower Hamlets first stand-alone strategy for its 10 street markets. The strategy proposed a vision for our markets and priorities for the next five years to ensure they can adapt, where needed, and remain strong into the future. It considered the context in which the Council’s street markets operate, in relation to high streets and town centres, the Covid-19 pandemic, London-wide initiatives and complementary strategies and policies within the Council. I really enjoyed working with Diane and wouldn't hesitate to recommend her, I hope we can do it again in the future!
Diane supported me with the launch and development of a new business proposition. She has been a fabulous support, managing, liaising and working with agencies and internal stakeholders to ensure that the launch is effective, timely and has the desired ROI impact. She has been proactive and always available when required.
We worked with Diane on a project basis for over eight months. With her combined marketing expertise and sector knowledge she completely reshaped our approach to insurance marketing. This resulted in us having a clear strategy in place and a realistic process for bringing new products to market. For the first time, we have the ability to market our insurance capabilities in a holistic capacity.
As an innovation-focused company we have many initiatives to launch and we needed a partner we could trust to help a small internal marketing team get more done without needing any hand-holding. Having worked with Diane before, we knew this would be a matter of course but within a very challenging timescale she achieved exceptional results and it makes an easy decision to continue to use her services.
Diane provides an excellent service and a high quality product. Always a pleasure to work with, she has delivered exactly what we needed - on time and in budget.
Working with Diane on the London Markets Board since Dec 2017 I have been impressed by her commitment to the potential of markets as engines for wealth building and social integration. Her knowledge of the sector is broad and deep. I have valued her many contributions to the work of the London Markets Board, which was established by the Mayor of London, to explore how shared but fundamental challenges can be addressed so that markets can continue to empower people, grow prosperity, and make better places.
Just concluded a really helpful commission with The Assembly Line to assist LB Redbridge to review our future market offer. Diane's insight and expertise have laid the groundwork for an exciting part of Ilford's regeneration which will introduce a refreshed market offer as part of our transformation programme.
It's been great to work with Diane to look at the future of Walworth Road as a thriving local high street. Always responsive and professional and a great communicator, Diane 'gets' the high street and has produced an insightful and usable report. Many thanks!
