“Adelina helped me secure significant development budget for a breakthrough product range from a highly commercial focused board. I had previously tried over a number of months to get the innovation approved, but only when I changed the approach to Adelina's recommendation, I was able to shift the mind-set of the board and get them to buy into the vision and support the development.”
Tim Moore, former CTO at Shark Ninja and GHD
“As a relatively new VPE I've found it challenging to make the IC (individual contributor) transition at times and to feel confident that I'm adding value. However, Adelina's help, guidance and insight have been invaluable and all achieved within one week! I feel invigorated again with the role and looking forward to moving forward with the plans set out.”
Rich Reeves, VP Engineering, Netwealth
