When I first heard Roseann at a Seminar she ran for the NZ Society of Accountants, I knew we had to get her involved with our company, and not just the management team, the whole company. IT people perhaps unfairly, have a reputation for being poor communicators. It is typical for technical people to try and work their way out of difficult situations rather than seek out conversations. A lack of communication tends to frustrate and annoy clients, this in turn makes our team more withdrawn and so a vicious cycle is established. Over the many years we have worked with Roseann’s Principles we have completely transformed the culture of our company. Our communication and soft-skills training has repaid the investment handsomely. Our team is empowered, confident and happy. Our clients notice the difference and this has made us more profitable. It’s without a doubt one of the best things we have ever done for our Business.  Bruce Copeland, Director of Sandfield Information systems

Roseann is one of a very small group of presenters who can truly be called ‘outstanding’. She teaches frequently on the Short Course programme at The University of Auckland, and the reason we keep using her is simply that she’s so good . . . always well-prepared, thoroughly professional, totally on top of her subject matter, cheerful, supportive and hugely gifted at motivating, inspiring and educating her classes. I recommend her without qualification.  Mike Groves, Retired From The University of Auckland Business School
