Testimonials

Few people have that combination of clear market insight and deliverable business impact. Julia is one of that rare breed, translating market insight into practical commercial strategies and then to tangible action. Over my career I have had the pleasure, as a GC, to engage with Julia on a number of occasions. In each case, she has helped me clear various hurdles and roadblocks with characteristic ease. Engaging in her characteristically consultative manner, she maintains a calm, relatable style: Open-minded, actively listening, asking pertinent questions while bringing disparate stakeholder viewpoints together, and then hitting with focussed accuracy on the nub of the matter. She has strong commercial acumen, drive and the ability to empower and bring people along with her. Julia is an invaluable sounding board no matter how thorny the challenge.
European General Counsel

Private Equity Firm

Julia is an inspirational leader and businesswomen who I have been lucky to know in various guises for over 10 years: As a colleague, where she pioneered the professionalisation of Strategy, Business Development & MarComs within the Firm. As a client, where she almost single-handedly transformed an ad hoc client relationship, into true partnership across a range of complex stakeholders. As an advocate and ambassador in the market for Inclusion & Diversity.

What has been consistent across all this time is Julia’s leadership approach: Strong strategic intuitive understanding of the commercial business drivers; exceptional influencing and consensus building ability; foresight to spot emerging market trends; and early advocate for issues such as: Inclusion & Diversity and Sustainable Business, that are only now more mainstream. Julia is a person of exceptional integrity, she walks the talk, and shines the light on others so that they may grow and thrive.

Global COO

Investment Bank

Engaging with Julia has been a joy. I am always searching for strategic perspectives and valuable points of difference in our engagements and Julia is squarely in that space. That turns on Julia’s ability to be right on point with the critical developments and trends within ESG and sustainability – and elegantly translating that into practical inputs that cover leading internal teams, supply chain management and the outcompeting the market. Terrific.

General Counsel & Company Secretary

Real Estate

Julia is an inspiring leader who always grasps the bigger picture. A natural and ready listener who excels at bringing complex (often superficially conflicting) viewpoints together to then drive forward consensus-led action. A natural influencer, she balances emotional intelligence and data-driven logic with an instinctive flair and intuition. Her consulting approach combines optimism with objective analysis and critical thinking with sound judgment. Julia’s optimism, drive and team orientation came as a breath of fresh air when I have needed to call on her assistance. I cannot recommend her enough.
EMEA General Counsel

Insurance

I have found Julia to be a true team worker with a Firm first mentality; collegiate and caring; incredibly capable, as she grew in seniority in the firm, of joining the dots. Her command of subject matters is impressive as she will take the time to study and consider not just the bigger picture, but the detail that it takes to develop it. Her understanding of our market and how it fits into our clients’ needs is the best I have ever seen. She is an excellent presenter (even to a crowd of 700+ law firm partners!). She is a consummate professional. And last, but not least, she is a pleasure to work with and a fun and positive person to be around.

Julia is an excellent strategist and leader. She is great at helping executive teams see and prioritise the big-picture opportunities and at creating practical roadmaps for developing the business. I’ve seen her chart a path successfully through many complex organisational issues with tremendous versatility and impact.
