‘my friend, colleague and mentor. She was a generous giver of time; taking the view that ' if you ask a busy woman' the job is most likely to get done. She was constantly available with good advice and was always free with her introductions to her remarkable contacts list. She was the consummate networker. Janette more than deserved her OBE and the sector was delighted to reflect in some of the glory of that honour’.
'Janette had a very sharp and quick mind and her observations on our industry were always clear and insightful. She had a unique ability to combine visionary thinking with keeping it real and her pragmatic approach meant that things she talked about usually eventuated’.
‘I worked with Janette at the Digital Youth Academy, just one of the many businesses which she helped establish in true Janette entrepreneurial mode. Having worked in the sector for many years I was looking forward to directly working with Janette for the first time, I wasn’t disappointed. A true visionary, role-model, natural leader, motivator and with an obvious passion for helping people, she was an all-round inspiration’.
