Delia is an outstanding writer. She has a natural clarity of expression and style, and is highly adaptive to any format - from news to annual reports to research publications.
She is highly skilled at assimilating new information and turning it into succinct, engaging and bright content.
A brilliant writer capable of turning her attention to politics and personal growth on a variety of platforms with equal aplomb, But this is rarely about her: she sets a pace which enables people around her to do their best work. Consider yourself lucky if you get to work with her.
