‘I was very impressed with Jane's flexibility and attention to detail. She took on a complex editing job for me and kept us all to schedule, a particular challenge as the work was being passed back and forth between a number of people at our end. Her project management skills are great, as is her diplomacy!’ Chloe Griffiths

‘Jane MacNamee has assisted me with various important project documents and related articles over a number of years. I have found her to be highly professional, as well as reliable and a great pleasure to work with.’ Clare Maynard
