Annamaria Ruffini, CIS, CITP, CMP
President, SITE Society for Incentive Travel Excellence
In march we have finally completed our journey from out-sourced to hybrid management of our SITE Association. So honored it happened during my Presidency. A key success factor in our progress, undoubtedly, was input of Angela Guillemet. Angela was our consultant throughout the transition process and added exceptional wisdom to our journey. I am extremely grateful to Angela for her professional guidance.
Affiliate Professor of Medicine, University of Washington
Angela handled all media and marketing for the international World Kidney Day effort sponsored by the International Society of Nephrology and International Federation of Kidney Foundations in 2008 and 2009. The event involved over 90 countries. She was creative, prompt, responsive, independent, versatile and carried the load of two people through a very busy period. She managed tasks ranging from handling contacts with a diversity of print, TV and on-line media to correspondence with 29 scientific and medical journals that published the WKD editorial. She has my highest recommendation.
Vice President International Relations and Chief Membership Officer, ASPS
I have had the pleasure of working with Angela in conducting a feasibility study for a proposed first time meeting and subsequently the management of the meeting from initial concept through execution. Angela's wealth of experience in marketing and research and her exceptionally strong team leadership skills resulted in a very successful meeting. I have also consulted independently with Angela over the years and her understanding of associations and international markets is exceptional.
Rajeev Kohli, CIS, CITP
Joint Managing Director at Creative Travel
I got to know Angela in my role as the global President of SITE. She was brought onboard as a consultant to work with us on a comprehensive transformation of SITE, help us renegotiate a few management contracts, create and manage process of selecting global partners for events and marcom services as well as lead our new CEO requirement process. An assignment that ran for many months. I have to say that hiring Angela was the best thing we could have done. She was focused, always on the ball. She brings in a good analytic perspective on issues. She was able to manoeuvre the different personalities of an association’s leadership board and most importantly was always able to stay neutral and objective. I enjoyed working with her very much. I would have no hesitation in recommending Angela to anyone looking for some association consultancy work.
I have worked with Angela in a number of different capacities, including in my role as a Trustee for an global trade association. She assisted us in reviewing our current organisational structure, making recommendations for improvements. A year later we asked Angela to assist us in our search for an new international CEO. At all times I found Angela to be a great partner - she was honest, candid and managed a very complex process in a clear way - creating deadlines and keeping us on track. Angela was more than an 'organiser', she was a very valuable adviser throughout the process and a highly trustworthy confidante. I would highly recommend Angela's work and integrity.

Senior Vice President, Volvo Groups Trucks Operations
Angela is an excellent "external" sounding board with a strategic mindset combined with a hands on and action oriented approach. Together with her goal orientation and great knowledge of EU affairs... and last but not least, her brilliant personality, made me hire here for several years in Brussels helping me executing my lobbying in a professional and cost effective way.
Global Advocacy Director, Baxter
I worked with Angela for 3 years while she supported me in delivering Global Advocacy plans for Baxter Healthcare Pharmaceuticals, she integrated well within the Global Advocacy team. She was hard working, well organised with excellent communication skills. Overall Angela contributed to the success of many of the Global Advocacy projects and initiatives that were implemented.
Angela advised Euromic in 2018 quite successfully. She helped guide us through an internal re-structuring and recruitment of a new CEO. She took the pressure off the volunteers so the process was seamless and timely. She is diplomatic and astute and her understanding of Boards and getting things done across cultures is second to none.
