Alison Barnett

"Elaine, Toby and I met through work 20+ years ago and we were housemates!"

What specific skills do you bring to the Blue Gnu team?

My super power is helping others with the administrative burden, doing the behind the scenes operations to support Elaine and the other associates do what they do best! 

What is your passion and mission?
Why do you do what you do?

I really enjoy learning. I've loved learning more about Insights Discovery and Motivational Maps and how these tools help people gain an increased understanding about themselves and others. 

What qualifications do you bring to the Blue Gnu team?

I am not sure my PhD in Molecular Biology is all that relevant! But my career in Pharmaceutical Regulatory Affairs involved project management, team and client relationships, process development and improvement, attention to detail etc. which are all useful skills for my role at Blue Gnu. 

What is the most interesting Blue Gnu project you've worked on?​​

I enjoy the variety of clients! I have supported one off events right through to long-term programmes last several months.

Who would your dream client be and why?

Someone who is super-organised!

I'd love the opportunity to travel with work, so a client that has teams/offices somewhere exotic would be an added bonus!
