Wall of kindness
“Bailey is a highly consultative, empathetic, business leader. She and I worked together designing the mission-led part of Smart Data Foundry's strategy, and she led the team exploring and launching our Customer Data Protection initiative. One of her talents is to take big strategic ideas and find early avenues to market: whether that is through rapid customer research, facilitating management team discussions or building early strategic partnerships, such as with the OBIE. Bailey "gets things off the ground" - a real asset in a start-up environment.” – Nick Hall, CCO, Smart Data Foundry
Cost of Living Hackathon Day – Host feedback
“Really enjoyed the networking and atmosphere set by the hosts. Very welcoming, open and encouraging.”
“The moderators were great. Amazing day and great job by the organisers.”
“Loved the vibe - super fun day and found it energising”
“I love hackathons but I must say this one was one of the best I've attended for two specific reasons: 1 - the expert presentation were actually really serving the purpose of the day and gave everybody great insight and great motivation. 2 - Wagestream had invited as subject matter experts, a couple of people who are users of their services and this brought immensely valuable moments to our brainstorming phase. Finally, I enjoyed that the day was more about the brain than the hack. We were not pushed to present anything that was very well designed or a prototype but really to focus on the solution. It was a great day filled with great ideas and a good melting pot of people between charities, established businesses and fintech.”
It was a pleasure working with Bailey. Lauren Oldacre
Bailey brought a high level of enthusiasm and inclusion to the project, backed up by great organisation and sharing experience and knowledge.
Aside from being extremely welcoming and amicable, Bailey has been a continual beacon of light and inspiration for our team in the few days we worked together. Her wealth of knowledge and experience about finance, innovation, and people management gave us clear direction. Mausam Mistri
Her project management skills have been amazing, she was so organised to get everybody on board pretty quickly. Although we're all working remotely, it didn't feel like it and from day one, everybody in the team knew what they're doing. Armela Veliaj – Hargreaves Landsdown
"What you shared about acknowledging the reality of exclusion, and adopting a mindset of designing for everyone, without labels of vulnerability or disability, really grabbed the minds and hearts of colleagues. Colleagues were both moved and motivated to make a difference." – Joanna Finlay, Virgin Money
“Thanks so much. I am getting lots of messages from people saying how much they liked it. Wonderful job, thank you. I hope we can turn that into some action too.”
‘Bailey is an excellent facilitator, highly motivated and more than prepared to operate outside what might be considered a natural comfort zone, including taking the lead where required, which she has the experience and gravitas to do. Bailey is always well prepared and working with her was a pleasure.’ – Dougie Robb, Smart Data Foundry
