Joanna also takes a keen interest in developing awareness of these subject areas; she is a regular speaker at internal and external seminar events and also delivers training on a variety of sector-specific and general employment law topics.
Joanna commented “I enjoy supporting organisations with their complex and often highly sensitive employee relations matters and helping clients achieve positive outcomes. I also have significant experience of working closely with HR teams to successfully manage complex internal investigations and hearings.
