“Sparrowly Group were a breath of fresh air to work with on the Regional Events Strategy. The team anticipated our needs and went above and beyond what was in the scope for project delivery. No challenge or opportunity was too big or small. Sparrowly Group’s professionalism, expertise, insights and stakeholder relationship skills were exemplary. I hope to have the opportunity to work with them again in the future.”

“I yelled at work one day; from frustration, I said: "Where is my PR god to look up to?" Next thing I knew, I was introduced to Giovanna and having coffee that same week. I had no idea what I was walking into, but that's Giovanna. She is the "solution" recommended by the best. For me, having Giovanna at a critical point in my career, where I had not only hit plateau but wasn't sure where to head next, Giovanna was the fresh air (okay, the hard push) I needed to get back on track. She has the ability to lift you up, not hold back, and hack into your insecurities to get the best from you.”

“There is a natural friction between the creation of good business ideas and the cold hard facts of operational reality. Many businesses struggle or fail in not addressing this simply by not concentrating their efforts in the right areas. Working with Giovanna has helped us to focus our strategies and align our priorities so we can more gracefully achieve our business vision and personal dreams.”

“The Kingsford area is undergoing great development changes with the Sydney Light Rail extension. Giovanna has led a project over last six months in developing a three stage communication advocacy strategy to ensure The Juniors and its members have a positive experience during construction and post. Her approach was collaborative and commercially minded whilst keeping our members and community focused which is key to the success of our business.”

“Giovanna is a can-do, dynamic businesswoman who understands the power of connecting people and causes.  She is an asset to Starlight Children’s Foundation and was instrumental in ensuring the success of our premier annual fundraising event, connecting Starlight Children’s Foundation to world-class entertainment and sponsorship opportunities. Giovanna also gives generously of her time and expertise. We are currently working together on a number of strategic fundraising initiatives and we are so happy to have her by our side.”

“I have worked with Giovanna on a number of projects within the hotel and business industries. To me, she is perhaps the most efficient and professional mentor/networker I have met, as well as having lightning speed comprehension of your business’s needs.

I trust her, which is disposition I don’t give lightly. If I could describe her character in one word, it would be ‘embracing’, as this covers her genuine heart for your success and her empowering business acumen on the dreams you want to build.”
