Many years ago, when I was having a tough time in a job, Anna went out of her way to stand up for and look after me - even though it made her own position more difficult. I've always remembered that as one of the kindest and bravest things anyone has done for me at work, and she remains one of most decent and humane people I've come across in TV.

Anna Mishcon is a fantastic team player. She has the great capacity to always see her way through any problem in a completely calm way with always the best results. She is a strategic creative problem solver and motivates everyone to do their best work in a very collaborative way. She is fair but firm and teams love working with her. She is a true asset to any team

Anna is an exceptionally capable person who can manage the most complex of problems with incredible calm and authority. I know Anna through work and also through the year long BBC Women in Leadership programme which we have recently completed. She's a pleasure to work with and always happy to be supportive and offer advice to younger members of staff. She's very professional and her understanding of the Byzantine workings of the BBC on virtually any front is legendary. I wish her the best of luck.

Anna Mishcon is simply one of the most capable managers I have ever worked with. She is a fountain of knowledge and has naturally fallen into the role of “point person” that many of us go to with questions. Her work ethic is something I really admire, she goes above and beyond what is requires whilst remaining calm and inclusive with the team. Anna is particularly skilled at dealing with complicated issues

She is a stand out member of current affairs and is respected by staff, managers and senior management alike. She works closely with Heads of News departments and is the person they rely on the most to deal with the day to day running of production management for BBC News. Her ability to absorb complex information and manage staff and resources is a skill I and my colleagues greatly admire.

Anna is a natural leader, she can delegate by giving clear instructions, is fair and understanding and always meets deadlines, regardless of how strict and unachievable they may seem to the team. In addition, she’s not afraid to take risks and often suggests new directions to explore. Anna was instrumental proposing real options for restructuring the business. She’s committed to quality, growth, and progress, and she inspires her team members to strive for the same. In short, Anna is a person with vision and humility.

On a personal note, Anna has been very supportive in helping me fit into the culture and overcome obstacles and issues. She is a good ear and always has a advice and is keen to find solutions to help the environment work well for the team.

I have known Anna for many years. I have always been impressed with her commitment to her work. Anna is hard working, discreet and seems to give above and beyond 100 o/o.

I have often talked to Anna about things that interest both of us and things that concern us.

We are in the process of setting up a new charity to support school aged children who have complex needs and need support with their mental well being. We have asked Anna to join us as a Trustees as we feel her professional skills and excellence will enhance our vital work. Anna will be a bonus to any organisation
