    Recommendations

     

    Here are only a few of the many recommendations from Nicola's clients and peers.

    Nicola is a strong leader and extremely knowledgeable to resolve complex business problems via Six Sigma/Lean Mfg/PMI methodology. She is result oriented and able to bring the best from her team. She makes her team feel valuable as well, getting the full synergy of a team. She is not only your leader but also your colleague in the action to build a winning team. It has been a privilege for me to work with Nicola. One of the best managers, I have seen so far.

    I’m writing to recommend Nicola McFadden. I worked with Nicola last year at two separate projects for The Woodbridge Group. She was the Project Leader for service desk support processes being outsourced to our company.

    In the time I’ve known her, Nicola has consistently been a strong and motivated resource — capable of taking control of big projects and executing each task to the fullest.

    Let me also mention that she is a pleasure to work with; Nicola is cheerful in the face of daunting deadlines and always available to lend a hand to co-workers when necessary. While taking care of standardizing and documenting process flows in different departments and creating companywide policies and processes, she was able to build effective work relationships at all management levels.

    Rarely do you come across someone who is educated, passionate and talented at both big picture ideas and executing the small details — Nicola is just that person. As Program Manager at The Woodbridge Group, she presented commitment and detail oriented leadership as well as never fading motivation. She is the most knowledgeable Program Manager I have ever worked with.

    I highly recommend Nicola as an employee or consulting engagements at your company. She would be an asset to any organization.

    It was one of my greatest pleasure in my professional life of 20 years to have been able to work with Nicola. I have seldom come across such a person to have a holistic view of one’s own role and others too. She provided me the required leadership,when needed, allowing me to overcome obstacles, and become successful in a new organization. Even on a personal basis, she offered everyone around her advice and guidance. She is extremely organized, focussed and has great leadership quality while being still able to strike a great friendship with all around her.
