Selected testimonials from clients
Emily has worked with Russell McVeagh in a variety of contexts including coaching our lawyers and practice groups, facilitating partners’ retreats and preparing a report and recommendations the firm used as a basis for our gender diversity initiatives. Her work is consistently of a very high calibre and her judgement is excellent. The key point is she gets results. Emily is trusted and respected across the firm. It is a pleasure to work with her.
Emily has an uncanny ability to swiftly hone in on the issues that really matter, not just the ones you think matter. She is able to do this through her unique blend of experience – an intuitive understanding of the business of law, how partnerships work in the real (not just theoretical) world, together with her direct, but warm and engaging, way of challenging you and your assumptions.
Always thought provoking and insightful, Emily brings that necessary independence and objectivity in a style that is empathetic yet unafraid to challenge the status quo. Drawing on her vast wealth of knowledge and experiences she is able to tease out the essence of a discussion to allow the audience to develop appropriate strategies or resolutions to problematic issues. Highly recommended.
Emily clearly has an enormous knowledge base to call upon and a wealth of real experience both as a lawyer and a coach – all of which is invaluable. She gives us guidance on potential issues to avoid or address and steps to improve what we are doing. Emily is great to work with and a valuable resource.
Emily’s experience and careful guidance greatly helped us achieve meaningful outcomes. Emily has a good academic grasp of the structure and psychology of business and is also highly relational, which creates a trusting climate to work in. We would happily recommend Emily to other law firms who are engaging in similar processes.
Emily is smart, practical and insightful in her approach, as well as a very engaging presenter. I recommend Emily as one of New Zealand's most highly qualified legal consultants.
As CEO for Anthony Harper, I have engaged Emily Morrow to coach lawyers on how to prepare and implement a strategic business development plan. Emily knows first hand how to build a very successful law practice (having done so) , and, more importantly, she really knows how to help others do the same.
Emily is professional and knowledgeable and her years in private practice give her a high level of credibility. She has added value each time we have used her and we look forward to continuing to call on her services in future.
Most importantly, Emily established credibility and trust with the team very quickly. Emily has been able to come in at subsequent times and work with individuals and smaller groups to assist and challenge them to stretch to their full potential.
Emily's work is always top notch. What is most remarkable about Emily is her versatility and knowledge; she provides all the services we need and she does it all really well. It's a pleasure to recommend Emily as our 'go to' consultant.
Our firm had Emily Morrow lead a one day retreat for the directors and managers. The retreat was fantastic. Her questions, facilitation of discussion, and presentations were all perceptive, challenging, and enlightening. We will certainly be using Emily again in the future.
