Andy Welch, EMEA Programme Director, JLL.
“Eilis joined mid lifecycle of a global HR transformation programme that was not performing well in any aspect of the programme presenting huge risks in terms of budget and timeless. Eilis‘ stakeholder capabilities were outstanding, demonstrated by the speed in which leadership teams across 40+ countries were re-aligned to a global model.
Her tenacity and pragmatism, and her ownership of ‘the problems’ enabled the complexity of fragmented workstreams to come together and deliver a common goal. Eilis’ talents not only ensure an aligned programme but also the BAU organisation has been build and capable to support the new policies, process, and tools, both within the HR organisation and the wider stakeholder and employee communities. Eilis‘ OD is as strong as her programme capabilities. Eilis worked seamlessly across HR, IT, Finance & Payroll senior stakeholders and technical teams. It would be a pleasure to work with Eilis again in the future”.

“I have worked with Eilis for 18 months on a very demanding program where she never failed to show the ability to manage people and projects in what is a fast moving and dynamic environment Eilis built excellent relationships, locally and remotely, with team members across the program, within HR and as well as functions outside of her areas of responsibility. She certainly demonstrated a pragmatic, positive and can-do attitude whilst working with demanding senior stakeholders from within and external to the program, It has been a pleasure to work with Eilis and I would certainly be happy to do so again in the future.”

“Eilis joining marked a critical turning point in the deliverability of this programme. Eilis was instrumental in coordinating and navigating the needs and requirements of a vast number of business stakeholders across EMEA, and managing these against the capacity and limitations of a global programme. As one of those stakeholders I always appreciated the time Eilis made to listen to my concerns, and her diligence and tenacity in exploring solutions. Where this was not possible she was open and honest about this, and where we could move from that point forwards. From my perception the HRLT took great comfort from level of organisation and detail, and the extent to which she used lessons learned from her extensive experience, and used these to guide the programme. I would absolutely recommend Eilis for future roles and wish her luck in her future ventures.”
