“Meredith shows a rare combination of methodical management approach with genuine empathy and community engagement skills and is highly respected by her colleagues and students.” Springvale Learning and Activities Centre
“Meredith has excellent networking skills and an ability to identify places and groups of people who are innovating ideas for creative and collective spaces. She is active in using social media as a way to stay connected with a more diverse range of people, relevant events and cutting-edge ideas. Of strong asset is her ability to engage with community development professionals in the exchange of ideas and keeping up-to-date with the industry. I strongly encourage Meredith… and believe that she has a valuable skill set that is currently under represented in her sector.” Dr Alexia Maddox, digital sociologist
“Ms Lewis is uniquely placed to offer consultative services, both for SMEs and the not-for-profit sector. Her approach is highly observant, analytical and inclusive; able to quickly identify and correct any planning issues. During the 3 years I ran a research program at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology Ms Lewis provided highly perceptive and well thought out strategies that were both comprehensive and simple to implement. Her direction assisted us in maximizing our resources, and institute measurable and positive change within our existing networks. Her unique ability to synthesize her experience working across multiple creative sectors, management roles within not-for-profit, and business training produces solutions that are both practical and innovative.” Romaine Logere, Event Designer, Researcher & Artist
“Meredith demonstrated considerable skills and knowledge in the areas of strategy, planning, and project management. She has a terrific eye for detail and can clearly identify potential stumbling blocks (such as adequate risk management).
Meredith demonstrates formidable skills in verbal communication. Her manner and reasoning is calm, softly-spoken and very clear. It is with this lovely expression that she keeps conversations very focused and always related to the brief. I believe her clarity of expression and inclusive approach – where all people are treated equally and with dignity – are rare qualities in business.
I also found Meredith is a natural networker who uses an enormous amount of resources to gather and sort information on new business and marketing trends. After working with Meredith on The Big Apple business plan I know that she would be a huge asset to any business on any project.” Rebecca Stewart, writer, editor and communications strategist
