I contacted Lorna with an HR-related enquiry. She provided me with speedy, step-by-step, outstanding advice that I needed. This made an incredibly stressful process go very smoothly, especially when you need to make many important decisions with time being the key constraint. Needless to say that this was all because of Lorna’s exceptional knowledge in the field of HR. I am extremely pleased to have contacted Lorna and I highly recommend her services.
