We take 5 minutes out with Ann Cojeen to discuss her career to date, how she starts her day and which mystery she would like to know the answer to.
I deal with all aspects of real estate transactional law from acquisitions and disposals including developments, strategic estates management and portfolio management. I act predominantly for public and private sector clients in the health sector. I also act for some funders supporting health developments.
Delivering estates solutions for clients.
Acting for East Midlands Ambulance Service NHS Trust in relation to its blue light scheme which championed the idea of One Public Estate across the various blue light services. It involved delivering a strategic estates-focussed review and the implementation of a variety of solutions with the police and fire authorities as partners. Collaboration was key and all parties embraced the spirit of the enterprise. I’m really proud to have been a part of this project.
When I was younger, I was a bit of an adrenaline junkie. On a trip to New Zealand, I got the bug and did three bungy jumps, a tandem skydive and river sledging. Years later and with a family, I’m not sure I’d do any of those things again … except perhaps the skydive which was the most amazing, exhilarating, serene experience I’ve ever had!
I could talk all day about the best film soundtracks and how a great soundtrack can really enhance a film. The best music really enhances a film so that you are truly immersed in the moment.
I love going for an early morning swim. One of my favourite places to be is in the water. It energises me for the day ahead.
Is there intelligent life out there in the universe? I’d love to believe that there is but I’d sincerely hope it was friendly and that we can learn from it.
