Testimonials

From the food industry

“Standing tall on nutrition is integral to our brand and I met Azmina when working on the most recent refreshment of our Nutrition Strategy. We wanted to capture insights from industry professionals and engaged with Azmina to facilitate working sessions covering relevant topics to healthy drinking. Azmina bought energy, passion and professionalism to the workshops, helping to steer conversations and outputs to a helpful place. We would be happy to both engage with and recommend Azmina in the future

“Amazing work Azmina.  We were both blown away by yesterday’s Roundtable and came away inspired and excited as to what the future of the brand could hold. I really am starting to see our vision come to life. I’m so glad we persuaded you to believe in us.

“As soon as I met Azmina, I knew she was the right person to help us rediscover our nutritional focus as a brand. She helped guide us through the complex world of nutrition and dietetics whilst being pragmatic. She has a wonderful energy and helped us channel that into all our new product development. She is inspiring to be around and this is evident through the wonderful network of fellow professionals, who clearly hold her in very high regard. An absolute pleasure to work with.

David Balmer, Managing Director

The Food Doctor

“Azmina is always great to work with. Her contagious passion for food and nutrition ignites enthusiasm in clients and fosters a really happy working atmosphere. This together with her ability to communicate really clearly and simply complex nutrition messages to non-technical or nutrition trained audiences makes her a valuable and joyful addition to project teams.

“Azmina helped develop a traffic light labelling system for our menus for Fresh Italy so that customers wanting to make healthier choices could have simple guidance on the menu board. Sales of green light dishes grew by 90% immediately after we implemented traffic lights, and side salads by 70%. We were very happy with the success of the initiative

Tom Allchurch, CEO & Founder

Fresh Italy

“I invited Azmina to join a critical strategic project with a focus on food nutrition. Azmina brings a well of knowledge, freshness, enthusiasm, open-mindedness and much, much more.

She was a real asset to the project and helped us to translate scientific and technical approaches into real value added benefits for our customers and consumers. I would recommend Azmina for any food and health projects that you are working on as a true expert that will bring new ideas and challenge corporate thinking.

From PR agencies

“Azmina has been a consultant nutritionist to our client, Schwartz, over the past two years. Her enthusiasm is infectious, her insight on health and wellness is invaluable and her creativity adds that additional spark to our PR programmes. She’s also such a pleasure to work with – very professional and sensitive to our demanding timelines!

 Kat Bayang, Account Manager

Hill & Knowlton

“With Azmina you get so much more than knowledge, you get creative input and ideas that work.  A willingness to passionately embrace the brief and a drive to make the project a success; her enthusiasm and knowledge is invaluable.  In terms of delivering messages to a viewing, listening and reading audience Azmina makes it so easy to understand within the context of very confusing, often contradictory general health advice.  As a consumer watching your webcasts, not only do you look good but you are incredibly watchable and I trust your advice.”

She was a key asset to the project – she created in-depth content on all things Nutrition, to engage the users by using simple yet creative and compelling strategies. It was a pleasure working with her and I would recommend her to any prospective clients!”

“It is always a pleasure to work with Azmina. She manages to combine an enthusiasm and passion for communicating the science of nutrition with a sharp analytical mind, attention to detail and a strong sense of professionalism. She has had a huge influence on the ways dietitians are using social media. If it wasn’t for her encouraging presentations and great work with RDUK I would feel much less confident about using twitter. I am very appreciative of her efforts!”
