What surprises people about me
I used to be a violin teacher
When Lisa was growing up, she always planned to work for Formula One. It seemed like a natural fit, because she studied mechanical engineering and loves finding solutions to problems that seem impossible. But fate had other plans, and she ended up applying her problem-solving prowess in the world of consulting. Lisa focuses on tackling government clients’ most complex issues – particularly around supply chains and commercial arrangements.
Lisa’s hugely proud of her role in building the supply chain for personal protective equipment (PPE) from scratch at the start of the Covid-19 pandemic. Afterwards, she became the Head of Commercial in the team supporting the vaccine rollout, which won the ‘Team of the Year’ and ‘Supply Chain Operations Award – Process’ at the Supply Chain Excellence Awards 2022. In that project, she focused on setting up the vaccine supply chain and ensuring the National Health Service (NHS) had everything it needed to distribute and administer vaccines to people across the country. Public Health England estimates that the vaccine deployment programme saved more than 128,000 lives.
Lisa’s working style isn’t hierarchical, as she sees value in understanding everyone’s experience and perspective. She enjoys getting to the root of a tricky problem and working closely with clients to find solutions. She’s always careful to listen to clients’ needs and ensure the solutions she proposes address all of the issues. That’s particularly important because the problems she works on are highly complex, and priorities can shift rapidly.
Outside work, Lisa enjoys keeping fit and seeing the world through the eyes of her young son. She lives in Hertfordshire, but she loves going back to her native Ireland to visit family and friends. She particularly enjoys hill walking in County Kerry near where she and her husband got married, as long as it’s not raining.
