Yvonne has worked with me on several broadcast projects over the last few years in the role of location scout, location manager & providing production logistics support. I have always found her to be super reliable, resourceful with a great attention to detail - an all round team player.

Sarah Davies

Yvonne worked as Production Coordinator on our production of Jesus' Female Disciples for C4. At short notice Yvonne successfully organised a complicated foreign shooting schedule across three countries involving hostile environments, two presenters, a British crew, local talent as well as flying in contributors from Europe and the US. During the shoot itself Yvonne was on standby round the clock which allowed her to deal with last minute changes. I am happy to recommend Yvonne as a highly experienced, hard working and committed member of the production team.

Jean-Claude Bragard

Yvonne and I have worked together over 20 years. I have always been very satisfied with her work as an office manager and then as a location manager. She is excellent. She works speedily and wisely.
