I have been impressed by the clear thinking and enthusiasm which she is applying to the project; she has readily gasped the wide issues involved with a maturity of thought and organisation which is impressive.

Thanks for the column… couple of my staff have spontaneously commented on how much they like your work. One of them mentioned you as always offering a good and interesting read.

Jenny displayed an impressive grasp of the diverse range of subject material and usually took the lead in discussion sessions. She is a talented scientific journalist and has an ability to assimilate and communicate complex concepts in a simple and lucid manner. In short, she is very bright and motivated.
