Her career has been shaped by societies issues (Payday Lending, PPI and COVID-19 related insurance claims) through various roles held.

Most recently, Lisa has been assisting a large insurer client with its strategy and approach to dealing with high volumes of complaints arising from Business Interruption policies.
