“Meryl is an extremely experienced and innovative leader with a great understanding of organisational strategy, having held significant leadership positions in both the supply-side and sales operations of BT. My contact with Meryl began when BT was initially privatised and the company transformed from a traditional PTT to a competitive commercial enterprise. Meryl has since advised me and coached business strategy for me in a number of organisations.”
