Dr Penny Andrew
I am an energetic optimist and love the challenge of 'how can we make this happen?' Law teaches you to think about a problem from different perspectives which really helps you to understand why something is important for whom and who you need to work with to make things happen. I believe in 'doing' - it's only by making an idea real that we can learn and improve. Ultimately, the essential ingredient is people - by bringing together different ways of thinking, ideas and experience we can be fantastically creative and anything is possible.
