I have known Annie Cerone for just over 5 years and in all my dealings with Annie she has been nothing short of superb in her competencies. Originally engaged to prepare my personal capability statements and then as a person I have engaged to prepare material in collaboration for some of my client projects. Testament to where an individual can go professionally when collaborating with Annie, is that both in 2016 and 2018 I was awarded with industry recognition as ‘Certified Practising Marketer of the Year – Queensland’, as well as 2017 Lifetime Member of the Australian Marketing Institute. The CPM professional standard is the peak professional designation for marketing/communications practitioners in Australia, like what a CPA is to accountants. I would never achieve such milestones without the support of colleagues like Annie. Separately, she is an outstanding presenter and communicator, collaborating in presenting industry discussions across the education sector, which has resulted in great feedback. Annie is a person that will give open, honest and candid feedback, which is what you want for someone preparing material for a job. Those that I have introduced to Annie have always given glowing praise towards their experience – you only need to look at the testimonials listed on her website to see this. This is particularly important to me, as I seldom refer people unless I have strong confidence that the experience would be a positive reflection on me and my judgement (my personal brand). I commend Annie to any individual seeking a solid adviser, with traditional values towards providing quality work and good communication throughout the process. She is unashamedly direct with her advice, but it is this characteristic about her that gets the results for a client. I am sure she will continue to prove worthy of my trust.
