Project highlight: I’m really pleased with the progress of a new Legal Innovation Forum we’ve been running in Telstra. We’re using design thinking processes to rapidly prototype solutions to eliminate low value, non-strategic work. We are well on track to meet our end of calendar year target of eliminating 30,000 internal lawyer hours spent per annum on specific categories of low value work.
What do you do for fun? Ocean yacht racing, kite surfing and playing guitar in my band.
Interesting fact: I had a previous career performing on film and stage as part of a comedy team. These days the only people who find me funny are my 3 small children.
