Having worked as a GC for 5 years and a global COO for 2, I have found solutions to most operational problems (purpose of the legal function, panel appointment and mobilisation, budget and spend management, demand management, KPI’s and scorecards, legal tech implementation, transformations, process optimisation, people and change management) and I want others to benefit from the lessons that I have learnt.
