“Carol has helped us to raise sponsorship for our ULHT Staff Awards for the past two years, and without her input we would have struggled to be able to fund and run the awards. She has used her skills to contact possible sponsors for us and persuade them to sponsor our awards. Each year she has managed to raise us thousands of pounds towards our awards, and we are grateful for her persistence and perseverance on our behalf.”

Carols skills at scheduling, planning and negotiating are vital to the success of our projects. Carol has a superb work ethic, she is dedicated and loyal. Carol has brilliant management skills because her people skills are extraordinary. With Carol on our team we can be assured the entire team will be motivated and  pull together very quickly, vital when working with freelance crews.

I have known Carol for some years, we’ve worked together on many occasions. Professionally she is a marvel and I cannot recommend her highly enough. Personally I am fortunate to count her as a friend, because she is a delightful person to know.

HD is a fast paced technology provider to some of the UK’s biggest banks and financial intermediaries….  We brought in Carol at a time when we needed to grow our team rapidly to test a new platform for a major client.  Carol immediately grasped the scope of what was needed and provided us with the extra bandwidth to get through a tough patch. I would definitely bring her in again..”

Nottinghamshire Healthcare is recognised as the leading national integrated healthcare provider… We approached Carol to raise sponsorship for our staff recognition scheme and we wanted someone who could hit the ground running and who could increase our sponsorship dramatically.  Carol exceeded our target for sponsorship and showed great enthusiasm for the project.  Her effective marketing and telephone skills really got people on board.  We would definitely use Parachute again.

Carol came in to our office to cover during holidays. She was able to apply herself confidently and professionally  to any task we threw her way, liaising well with clients and other members of our team. We will use Carol again when we need additional office support.

Carol was a great asset to my marketing event at Burghley House in Stamford: she gathered and co-ordinated all the sales leads and followed up  to arrange appointments. Her services saved me considerable time. I also contacted Carol when I was so inundated with work that the admin side was suffering, and Carol ‘dropped’ in and hit the ground running. I am amazed at how quickly she grasped what was needed to be done and she worked well without supervision, asking essential questions that only I would know the answer to. I won’t hesitate in using Parachute when Totally Flowers is in need of event organisation and also administration help.”

Susan Martorano, Director, Totally Flowers
