"Effective communicator and persuasive negotiator"

I have worked closely with Sindy Goodhew on numerous projects over more than 10 years. Most of those projects involved complex considerations relating to land use, planning frameworks, and development standards. Resolution of these issues typically requires strategic consideration, research, negotiation, problem-solving, stakeholder management, and persuasion.At all times, I have found Sindy to be an excellent strategist and problem-solver, able to identify and explore creative options to resolve issues. She is particularly adept at managing matters efficiently and effectively, to achieve timely and positive results.
