"I had the pleasure to work in a team led by Bea in the ODWS 2010 initiative, where I got to know her as a dedicated, open minded and goal-oriented professional. Her skills in organizing and project management, combined with her empathy and well-applied coaching skills ensured that our team could deliver exceptional results. I do have to highlight her skills to manage diverse expectations and a number of different demands at the same time and her ability to balance between being results-oriented and friendly. "
