“Gemma’s arrival changes a team completely — for the better! She cuts through red tape and just gets things done. And when she’s done them, they stay done. She kickstarts and fosters community spirit, and encourages the team to explore new heights. I would not hesitate in recommending Gemma, or indeed in working with her again.”
— Kevin Rutherford, Extreme Programmer, Rutherford Software Ltd

“I work with Gemma at Allegro Networks. Gemma has a great knack for breaking down complicated problems in simple ways. She’s always two steps ahead of everyone else in the room. Her design and refactoring skills are excellent and she has taught me a lot.”

I’ve been running HackManchestet since 2012. I’m available for hire to help you get your own internal hackday off the ground.
“I worked with Gemma to support the branding and website development for Hack Manchester soon after its inception, and then in the weeks prior to the event. Her hard work and dedication clearly shone through on the weekend of the event; it was by far the best organised hack-day which I’ve attended, and I spoke to a lot of other attendees who felt the same.
Throughout, Gemma showed herself to be an extremely accomplished event manager; she was efficient in organising the event suppliers, effective at delegating responsibility when it was required, and a great communicator throughout.”
— Jon Atkinson, Technical Director at FARM Digital Ltd.
