“It was an absolute pleasure to have Christina as part of the Mushroom Mania restaurant reviewing team. Her reviews were well written and beautifully photographed with her quirky sense of fun and good humour. Christina followed the brief to a tee and published the blog posts on time – what more can you ask for? A true professional.”

“You’re doing a superb job,”

“It’s a tribute to her management skills and endeavour that the Chamber thrived during her period of tenure. Growth in members exceeded all previous records and the financial status of the organisation was the best it has ever been. She personally oversaw the growth in the number of events and functions conducted by the Chamber as well as the number of attendees. During this period, the Chamber developed a ‘best in class’ reputation within the Shanghai business community and was the envy of all other Chambers of Commerce… Working within the Shanghai environment is not easy due to the complexity of managing diverse and often conflicting interests. However, Christina was able to consistently deliver excellent outcomes to the satisfaction of the Chamber Board of Directors and the members…”
Grant Kelly, former Chairman, AustCham Shanghai.

She is extremely intelligent and perceptive; her high level of intelligence means she is essentially a self-directing and motivated worker – a extremely desirable attribute. Christina is also conscientious and diligent and pays a great deal of attention to relevant detail. On a personal level, Christina is interesting to talk to and is engaging and delightful company,”
Penelope Curtin, former Senior Development Officer, Arts SA.
