 To Whom It May Concern,

 Character reference for Mrs Louise Wood


I have been aquainted with Mrs Wood in both a personal and professional capacity for four years and therefore am able to offer a true and honest reference of her character.

I have always found Mrs Wood to be an honest and trustworthy person who can relied upon without question. She has a very calm, caring personality and can think clearly when under pressure. Her interpersonal skills are many and she is able to relate to a wide range of personalities effectively. Mrs Wood can work as part of a team and is an excellent communicator.

Through her time with working with a child with a statement of special needs, Mrs Wood was able to show that she can use her own initiative to bring out the best in others. She can work under pressure to meet deadlines, without compromising the quality of the purpose.

Mrs Wood is competent with ICT and uses this effectively.

I have no hesitation in recommending Mrs Wood, and wish her well for the future.

Yours sincerely,

Mrs Patricia Dowsing

 To whom it may concern

 Dear Sir / Madam,

 Re. Personal Reference - Mrs Louise Woods

 I have known Louise as both a friend and colleague on various committees for approximately 5 years, and consider her to be a highly respectable, honest and trustworthy individual.

 With regards to the above committee work, we first worked closely on our school fund raising group. During this time, Louise took the lead role on a number of high profile events and proved herself as a very capable and dedicated officer.

 During my time on the committee, she successfully undertook the roles of Treasurer, Vice-Chairperson and then Chairperson. She also successfully chaired this group through some very difficult times and managed a number of complex and difficult people issues, whilst keeping the group on course to raise the required amount of funds for the school.

 More recently, Louise has joined me on the Board of Governors for the school. A role that she has again gone about demonstrating her normal trademark commitment and dedication.

 In short, if you were building a new team or embarking on a project, Louise is the type of character that you would want working alongside you to successfully deliver it. If you require more information - please do not hesitate to contact me.

 Yours faithfully,

 Mat Osborne

Re personal reference for Mrs Louise Wood

I confirm that I have known Louise for 6 years and she is a trust worthy, reliable and conscientious person. Louise has cared for our Cocker Spaniel Meg on numerous occasions, for periods of up to 3 weeks duration, whilst we have been on family vacations. Meg has always been well cared for in a home from home environment by Louise and her family. I would definitely recommend Louise to any one wishing to have their pet exercised or cared for.

Yours faithfully

 Mrs Sarah Palmer
