“…I would unreservedly recommend Hannah for any element of HR activity where sensible, pragmatic, legally sound advice is needed. As a manager you don’t always have to take advice given, the biggest compliment I can give Hannah is I would struggle to recount an experience when I haven’t followed the advice she has provided to me”
