She works hard to understand the needs and perspectives of all involved in a project, balancing these whilst driving the work forward to meet the objectives.

“She engages people effectively in the work; celebrating their contributions, identifying who can make things happen and demonstrating clear impact. I am actually trying to practice what I am calling ‘the Libby response to conflict’ in my meetings – she has this great ability to welcome all contributions however off the point they seem to be and make people feel really valued, bringing them together.”
