I have worked with Roz over many years. She is a consummate professional, enthusiastic, people focussed and an experienced HR leader. I have found she clearly articulates sound advice on employment law and personnel matters. I am very fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with Roz. She is warm, approachable and I regard her as an expert in her field. I would not hesitate to recommend Roz and call upon the wide-ranging HR services she provides.

I have known Roz for several years working with her in a recruitment context successfully completing complex senior level searches. She is the composite HR professional with excellent knowledge across compliance, employment law, diversity, employee relations and HR policy. She is engaging and approachable making her a pleasure to work with. Both strategic and operational, she is capable of meeting the most challenging business needs. In an HR Consultative role, I would have no hesitation in recommending her to use her business intuition to get to the crux of the problem and draw on her wealth of HR experience to solve in an empathetic manner. Her warmth, intellect, experience and enthusiasm will enable her to add value across a broad spectrum of needs and enhance your business operationally.

I have been fortunate to have worked with Roz on two occasions, at Westpac in 2012 and more recently at Impax. Over that time, Roz has helped me develop as a HR professional and has been not only a great leader and mentor but more importantly had a very positive impact on my performance and career progression. Roz and I worked together on enhancing and embedding HR processes and delivered on many new HR initiatives. Some of her key strengths were coaching managers/employees and building strong relationships with key stakeholders to deliver on business objectives. In summary, Roz was a truly amazing manager and I am honoured to have worked with her over the years.

Rosalba Reid: Supremely professional, positive, perceptive and empathetic HR Generalist
As CEO of Craft of Communication, I have worked with Roz on five projects. On each occasion, she was the company’s HR Director. On the most recent occasion, Roz had set up and then developed the company’s HR function. Roz is a supremely professional and positive HR Generalist. On each occasion, Roz’s perceptive and empathetic insights about individuals and the company helped us enormously when we were diagnosing the client’s coaching and training issues. Roz’s positive attitude and constant support was invaluable when we delivered the programmes that addressed these issues, and helped our clients’ businesses grow, giving key individuals the tools and techniques to conquer its next phase of success and growth.
Roz is able to do all this because, as an HR Generalist she is both a strong strategic thinker and delivers administrative and day-to-day HR support both to the company and to individuals.
As a company, we have worked with many SME’s and I am sure that Roz’s vast experience, her in-depth experience in employee relations, development of HR policies, selection interviewing and people development would be invaluable. As a person, Roz is a highly intuitive, empathetic, warm and, when it comes to getting things done, she is a powerhouse.
Craft of Communication
Rosalba (Roz) is a pleasure to work with. She combines deep expertise in HR, with a warm and compassionate style of engaging with others and a drive to make a difference. As a result, she invests time in developing relationships, understanding the business context and seeing things through to completion. Not only is she a strategic thinker, but she is also somebody who can operationalise ideas, with and through others.
I have known Rosalba (Roz) since the 1990s when she was working in the HR department of JP Morgan, and when I was setting up my company, Positiveworks, which specialised in coaching, professional development, and training programmes. During the thirty years in which I ran Positiveworks we delivered training courses and coaching programmes to a number of the senior and middle management staff within the companies for which Roz worked.
I have always found Roz professional, organised, and dedicated. But beyond this she is also an innovator, perceiving creative solutions and lateral methods that others may not have considered. As a communicator she has been able to influence and motivate employees to adopt new ways of working that raise productivity and teamwork.
Roz has managed HR departments and so is also well versed in the everyday demands of HR, including compliance, contracts, diversity, and regulations.
