“I have nothing but good things to say about working with Clarissa. As the policy team leader in the Department for Education with responsibility for getting Family Intervention Projects evaluated, and their impact on families with multiple problems, I worked closely with Clarissa, who led the evaluation team in the National Centre for Social Research.
You just feel like you’re in the best possible hands. Her expertise, her ability to communicate, her flair and ideas, her willingness to go the extra mile, to be flexible and to respond quickly to urgent requests… they all helped in a fast moving business environment. But it is her authority, her integrity and her ability to form strong and creative relationships that really put the icing on the cake. Unlike most researchers and consultants, Clarissa doesn’t tell you what you want to hear, she tells you what you need to hear – which means you are going to get the best possible service. She is bursting with ideas and excellent advice, and she has a real sense of doing the best job, not the job that will earn her company the most money. And that’s worth a lot.”
