"Liz is the most positive, inspiring and talented recruiter and networker I am lucky enough to know, she has provided me with real guidance, support and friendship as an employer, a mentor and business partner.

"Liz has been an absolutely fantastic support in the re-brand and re-launch of my freelance copywriting business. I took part in her Talent Plus programme, a fully customised approach to identifying, targeting and winning new business. Liz advised me how to completely redevelop my business profile, covering everything from my CV and website to social media, pitch letters and phone scripts. I now have a strong 'tool kit' and a number of new touch points that I didn't have before – but more importantly, a plan for moving ahead and the confidence & self-belief to implement it! New clients are already emerging, with one or two meetings booked. Thank you Liz, you have made all the difference!!"

"Liz Gadd is without doubt one of the most professional and well connected recruiters I have ever come across. She
is an example of what professional consultative recruitment looks like and I am pleased to count her within my circle
of contacts. Highly recommended."
"Liz is head and shoulders above any other recruitment consultant I have worked with in 14 years. I have worked with Liz as a client, supplier and candidate so have experienced her professionalism, extensive contacts and knowledge of the recruitment industry from different perspectives.
She's passionate about her job and a real ambassador for high standards. She has a strong sense of integrity – an
element sometimes lacking in an industry which is driven by sales commissions. Liz acts as a real consultant,
adding value to everything she does. She's also a high advocate of investing in future talent – to improve the quality

"Liz is great at cutting through detail and getting right to the nub of the issue which makes decision-making much
more straight forward and, indeed, successful. As such she's a great asset to the CIPR in the West of England. On a
personal level, Liz has got great energy and drive and is always there to offer support and advice at all hours of the
day and night! She's that rare breed; a highly professional colleague and a true friend."
"Liz is quite unlike anyone I have met. Yes, Liz is incredibly well networked and thought of but her special quality is more than connections – it is an ability to read people, understand their core strengths, what motivates them and make quickfire decisions about who they will click with – she is an inspiration to work with."
"When it comes to recruitment Liz never fails to deliver. She takes time to understand your needs and works hard to find the perfect match.
Her understanding of the PR communications business is excellent, she's very well connected and she's always upfront. Very refreshing approach"
"Liz is simply fantastic at what she does. She coached me through the early stages of a full-time freelance career, giving me sensible, pragmatic, and spot-on advice which has really helped kick-start my business. From encouraging me to come up with an elevator pitch (and helping me perfect it) to suggesting ways to make my website clearer to career advice, Liz really knows her stuff and was able to hone in on the little things that made a huge difference to the way I present myself. It was incredibly helpful for me to be able to bounce ideas off her and get honest advice, and refreshing to work with a coach who has not just direct experience in the PR and communications world but a massive contact book to boot! Her professional, encouraging attitude and her advice and coaching has already helped me secure new leads and prospects as well as some amazing contract work, and I look forward to continuing to work with her in the future."
