Preyal was able to simplify my vision with clever questioning and then define some very simple steps that helped me manage the way forward with clarity. A thousand buzzing thoughts streamlined into a concise plan of action – I thoroughly recommend.

Preyal was able to step in quickly with an accurate analysis of a challenging time for our business, support and encourage my thought processes and outline straight forward actions as the next steps. I wish I could have her sitting on my shoulder in future meetings.

Preyal listened carefully and asked insightful questions. She was able to draw some really useful parallels between her work and mine, and shared very relevant and practical examples of what has worked well for her in the past which I can apply in my work.
