“Tess’ work has been pivotal to the success of this complex project. As with any project charged with creating significant and lasting cultural and professional change, Tess’ involvement has required high-level strategic planning and negotiation skills. Tess’ great strength is her ability to analyse complex problems and break them down into achievable actions. Tess is outstanding at facilitating diverse groups of individuals, ensuring that each person is given a voice and keeping agendas in check and on track. Tess’ embrace of honest and open discussion allows for inclusive and appropriate decision-making at all levels. Her ability to design and implement effective structures and processes that engender and support the momentum of change is quite exceptional….Importantly, Tess pays close attention to executive and procedural matters, bringing a high level of professionalism to the everyday business of project management. In a team context, Tess is equally valued for her energy, positivity, empathy, enthusiasm and sense of humour.”
– Anthony Woodward, Project Manager, Pathways

“Arts Tasmania commissioned Tess Dryza of Ripe Online to undertake online and face to face facilitation and analysis of an industry development project. The team was enthusiastic, committed, highly professional and immediately responded to deadlines and changes in the brief. They worked collaboratively and creatively with us in developing the project. This involved designing and moderating an online forum for discussion, including generating catalytic questions to prompt engagement. The face to face session was sensitively and efficiently facilitated by Tess Dryza, who was much admired by the participants for her incisive yet empathetic approach. The whole process made it much easier for Arts Tasmania to achieve its desired results and we look forward to working with Ripe Online in the future on similar projects. I have no hesitation in recommending Ripe Online and their broad range of services.”
– Katherine Hough, Director, Arts Tasmania


“The Landcare Australia website has become an integral part of our organisation. It’s a promotional tool, a resource centre and a meeting place for the Landcare Community. Tess fully engaged with our needs and delivered a creative and practical solution that allows us to do our job better.”
– Brian Scarsbrick, Chief Executive, Landcare Australia Ltd
