Hannah and Mary [Barncat Consulting] produced a very well researched and comprehensive document for Oxfam on the technically challenging issue of corporate tax avoidance, on a tight timescale. They both showed well-honed research skills and political awareness in drafting the document. This report has greatly added to Oxfam’s store of expertise on this issue and has been well-received by a broad audience.

Michael McCarthy Flynn, Senior Research and Policy Coordinator
Oxfam Ireland

It has been a pleasure to work with you. Because my attention is typically broken by other tasks I have to attend to, your consistency with respect to keeping track of the substantive issues, meeting deadlines and making sure that key people are engaged with has been essential in bringing us to this stage. Also, I believe in the saying that it is always easier to complicate than to simplify. The way you have approached and presented these complex issues is simple, but not simplistic, which is really what we all want.

Eric Gutierrez, Senior Adviser Accountable Governance
Christian Aid

I really appreciated the way that Hannah took time to really work with us in the initial stages of the research to understand exactly what we needed. She listened intently and asked the right questions to clarify our expectations. Throughout the research, her approach was flexible and enabled us to ensure that the work responded to changes in the external environment. She was always approachable and ready to answer any questions we had. I was impressed by her breadth of knowledge and network of contacts in the international development and business arenas. The final report was very well written and meets our needs exactly. The experience of research with Barncat Consulting is one I would highly recommend.

Dr Lorna Gold, former Head of Policy and Advocacy

Hannah delivered a very thorough, informed and practical piece of research for VSO which we have been able to use to guide our work on short-term skilled volunteering. She very quickly and effectively learned about the issues involved in this work, identified and interviewed key people and produced an overview of existing best practice and recommendations for VSO. It was a pleasure working with Hannah, both on desk research and in the field, and I have no hesitation in recommending her.

James O'Brien, Research and Advocacy Manager
VSO Ireland

Hannah’s work for us was of the highest quality. It was clear that she had prepared thoroughly in advance of taking on the piece of work, talking with key people, and reading key documents to get herself comfortable with the subject matter- going beyond what could be reasonably expected of a consultant. She was punctual and thorough. Her writing style is clear, logical and accessible. We were very fortunate to have been able to work with Hannah- and I would have no hesitation in working with her again.

Sorley McCaughey, Head of Advocacy and Policy
Christian Aid Ireland

Hannah conducted a very thoughtful and clear evaluation process which produced a highly readable and thought provoking report. Working with Hannah was always a pleasure. She has a very calm, focused and organised approach with all participants and made everyone feel very comfortable throughout. The entire evaluation process was a stress free experience for me as Manager which was much appreciated!
