I am often asked for references [or testimonials] and rarely give them. In the case of Barbara Clifford I am more than willing to provide an insight into someone who has worked for me and with me for many years and that I truly respect. Barbara’s passion for productivity is inspiring. Her appetite for innovation meant that Barbara was able to recommend small, simple methods of business activity that made a great difference to our working environment. Her mature approach gave me the freedom to adapt or reject ideas with ease.A skilled negotiator, Barbara was often able to manage important projects, giving me the freedom to spend time in my business, knowing she had the job at hand. Barbara is an adaptable thinker and by no means rigid in her approach. I was able to work with Barbara, often with tight deadlines, on a variety of projects until I felt comfortable with the outcomes.Barbara’s varied experience means she is a great asset to any organisation and a natural educator. I cannot be any clearer than to say, Barb is a great asset to have on any team.

In a very short space of time, Barbara analysed my office space, my working habits and listened when I expressed the problem I was having and the help I was asking for.  Not only did the suggestions that Barbara made during her visit improve my working habits exponentially, but Barbara has continued to make really valuable suggestions that have all been focused on the productivity issues that I have been having.To do that, it takes someone with incredibly good listening skills, excellent analytic skills, and some portion of human behaviour knowledge, and I haven’t even mentioned time management skills, or systems designed to enhance the flows and storage of information.  I tell people she’s changed my life, and I’m not joking.  It’s changed the way I feel about “doing” my business – I am now much better able to address myself to working on my business as well as working in my business.  I have not lost one piece of information since Barbara’s first visit!  And I feel much better about myself and the services I offer my clients – simply because I fee in control of the information, not it in control of me.Thank you Barbara, best wishes, Valerie.
