"Silke is a very dedicated professional, highly knowledgeable and she brought her decades of experience in the organic sector into the internal audits we conducted with her. I appreciated very much Silke's inoffensive style, being open to first understand how we work before drawing quick conclusions. The points Silke raised were always well researched and transparently explained to us. She gave us very good analyses and we could go straight into implementation. Her audits were a great preparation for the USDA audit, and we had no problems at that point. The auditors clearly appreciated the work we had done together. It was great working with her."
