"Celia Jordaan is one of those once in a lifetime connections you make. She has an uncanny ability to connect with others and a deep sense of intuition that I see as one of her greatest strengths, alongside being practical, insightful and wonderfully professional. I have found her to be supportive and encouraging and constantly interested in the business I am running and providing countless ways to help it grow. A top performer. I truly would not go past her. It is a pleasure to both know, and work with her. "

"Celia, you nailed Reconciliation Action Procurement Plans! You have sliced and diced RAP, RAPP and procurement to its initial stages. Clearly to explain the reasons for its birth, how it has evolved over the years and its ongoing journey of success and failures. You have: - 1) gently held the hands of the next generation of procurements graduates to lead them in the right direction; 2) nudged awake the current procurement workforce with a refresher course; 3) advised organisations, employers, State and Commonwealth Governments that if they are going to talk the talk, they should walk the walk ; 4) reminded that it is everyone's responsibility to play a part to ensure the gap is closed; and 5) demonstrated that if an organisation implemented and monitored each of the above steps, they will have on-going success without a doubt. For the brief period that I have known you, this article clearly indicates your invaluable knowledge on the subject (of Indigenous Procurement). "

"Intellectual property has a reputation for being a complicated, eso- teric and dry academic subject.By presenting the subject of intellectual property in an entertain- ing, easy to follow, way Celia has done a great job of demistifying the subject matter on the one hand whilst, on the other hand, clear- ly demonstrating that intellectual property serves to protect most things things that we as humans invent, create, design or write. Not only do I now know how to bake cookies, I am able to more clearly describe the key elements and impacts of intellectual property to others thanks to Celia’s e-book. I highly recommend this e-book and look forward to more practical, concise and enjoyable offerings from Celia."
