Dr Siham El-Kafafi wrote a bi-monthly column for QNewZ, the membership-only monthly publication of the NZ Organisation for Quality, from 2010 to 2015. As editor of QNewZ I worked closely with Dr El-Kafafi. Her QNewZ columns were always engaging and informative. Dr El-Kafafi is able to take complex academic leadership knowledge and research explaining it in a way that is both accessible and relevant to the nominated audience, from front line managers to CEOs.

I found Dr Siham El-Kafafi as a wonderful mentor and research developer. I love the way she is passionate about her work and very attentive to details. Her numerous years of experience in research and educational field translates into high quality outputs. She demonstrates outstanding presentation skills. She is an excellent communicator who presents her point clearly and professionally. It is a pleasure attending her valuable training workshops.

Siham is a passionate researcher, lecturer, and presenter, a person who I enjoyed working with when I was her Dean at The Faculty of Business, Manukau Institute of Technology.

Siham is an enthusiastic researcher, commentator and writer. She is at once a free-spirit, a keen learner and a conscientious teacher. I commend her for those traits.

We have two key requirements when considering the merits of copy editors and proof-readers: attention to detail and reliability. Dr Siham excels in meeting those criteria. It has been an honour to work with someone of Arrows Research consultancy. Dr Siham provided a very timely and very meticulous proofreading for my academic paper. She was particularly good at revising at the clause level and spotting any flaw in logical argumentation of the paper, as well as correcting any inconsistency in grammar, spelling, etc. Her work helped to make the paper ‘shine’! Dr Siham is deliberate with her editorial tactics and implements great attention to every detail. For me, one of her standout skills is her ability to keep her clients satisfied and keep projects and tasks moving forward. I had absolutely no concerns once we had agreed on a course of action. Additionally, Dr Siham puts her heart and soul into her work and business. It is clear by her professionalism and the output of her services. I am humbled to have worked with someone with such high integrity, who’s so committed to our mutual success. A truly great ally and asset to any business - one I would highly recommend!
