Testimonials

We have been exceptionally impressed with the support and expertise provided by Right Lane. The level of organisation and planning prior to sessions, as well as Tal’s skilled facilitation and knowledge of the legal sector, has meant the sessions have been incredibly productive. The follow up post sessions with the notes have also been of such a high standard.

I’m so pleased that we have ended up somewhere we couldn’t have envisaged at the beginning of the process, as it means we weren’t anchored and have really been guided by the process. Thank you!

CEO, community legal services

On behalf of our team I would like to convey my heartfelt appreciation for your outstanding work and contribution towards the development of our business case. I would like to express my sincere thanks to you for your excellent work within a short period of time.

Your team went out of the way to reach all key stakeholders and come up with out of the box ideas, which has made the proposed business case unique and relevant for all involved.

The executive noticed and appreciated your attention to detail and relentless determination to release a quality product on time – which you did!

Chair, Government Taskforce
