Annabel has been an invaluable support to the Barking Heads team over the last 2 years. Annabel trusts, empowers and motivates the team to take the lead and make the big decisions. Very hands on and challenging when the team seeks input, but always in the right way. Consequently decisions have clear buy in and management feel supported when executing and adapting the strategy that was agreed
