To the Sentencing Magistrate
Broadmeadows Magistrates’ Court
I am aware that Ms Angela Cranne, my employee and Opera%ons Head at Social Events Master, has been
recently charged with “Dangerous Driving”. As her employer I provide this character reference on her
behalf with a sincere belief that the o-ending is highly contrary to her work ethic and disposi%on in life.
I have known Angela since she applied to be a Marke%ng Execu%ve at my company seven years ago. It has
been a great pleasure working with such a talented and benevolent woman and she has helped me
expand my company to what it is today. Many of our clients could a0est to Angela’s dedica%on to work
and to her many posi%ve quali%es. She is especially known for personally sponsoring Christmas par%es for
children in two orphanages every year. As an ac%ve member of a group that promotes children’s welfare,
Angela has also greatly contributed to sending many children with special health concerns to medical

charitable ac%vi%es have been very upli5ing to the morale of all employees. Most importantly, Angela has
made it possible for my company to employ more people. She shows dignity to our older sta- (baby
boomers) and has always maintained that skill issues should never be a reason for someone to be
terminated because she believes that skills can be honed by promo%ng an ideal workplace environment.
She is excep%onal at judging people’s talent and assigning the best person for a speci3c task.
This is Angela’s 3rst criminal charge and she is clearly worried by what this can do to her personal and
professional reputa%on. She approached me about the o-ending and expressed how she truly regrets
driving at a speed that was dangerous to the public, let alone to children who have been the centre of her
charitable e-orts. She is currently a0ending a safe driving program and aims to learn more about tra9c
regula%ons so she won’t commit the same road mistakes again.
It was de3nitely a surprise to have learned about Angela’s o-ending and I personally understand the
gravity of this o-ence. However, knowing the kind of woman she is, I am sure that she will take a great
