“The Cork County Development Board is charged with the co-ordination of services at the county level. This involves the implementation of key inter-agency economic, social and cultural projects. In that regard, Alvina’s informative and interesting presentation to the multi-agency Board helped to significantly advance the process of integration in Cork County. Members found her focus on Cultural Diversity Awareness extremely useful and recognised the benefits of proceeding with the integration issue on a county-wide level. I have found Alvina’s approach to putting her message across to be engaging, positive, practical and good-humoured.”
