""Tracey brings to her work skills from her previous life in advertising and applies it in an unconventional way that breaks the mould of catering consultancy as we know it and by approaching the project from different angles, she engages the caterer and client to challenge them both to break new ground with a fresh approach. It was a delight to work with her.”"
