Herself a consultant for the last 5 years and, in that duration, salvaged many a client from the jaws of ignorance, Donna aims to incorporate a light hearted session with some insightful advice to organisations about the role of a H&S consultant, the expectations an organisation should have and how those expectations can be defined as well as methods to pick out the "wheat from the chaff” when it comes to selecting a consultant.
