'Through her extensive supply chain expertise and emotional intelligence, Marianne brings people together to achieve significant impact and outcomes - as exemplified by her success in driving forward Trade+Impact's initiatives to help social enterprises access finance more easily and strengthen value chains.
Also, Marianne's way of observing, strengthening and leveraging models of transformation are inspirational and of great value to myself and Trade+Impact.
Marianne inspires trust, asks well-targeted questions that move stakeholders ahead, and is strongly collaborative and focused on a more sustainable and inclusive world.'
Trade + Impact Association
'I have known Marianne in a number of roles: through WEConnect, as she represented Accenture's global relationship with WEConnect International in her role as Global (Non-US) Supplier Inclusion & Diversity Lead at Accenture; through the development of the first ever UK Economic Blueprint, where we both participate in several work streams including Access to Markets - where she has taken the lead to drive the capability statements for women business owners as a project - and now leading her new venture Blueintogreen.
Marianne continues to be an inspiring force in driving inclusion and diversity on our agendas, and she has guided our many meetings and discussions with insights and sensitivity. She is a true champion of supplier inclusion and never fails to inspire through her work, enthusiasm and dedication.
I truly value Marianne’s contribution to all of the projects we are both involved in. Through Blueintogreen, she is now tackling issues which are vital for growth, including sustainable and ethical sourcing and business processes, collaboration and constructive work relationships.'
