“Lynn’s expertise, dedication and experience of dealing with the Charity Commission were invaluable to the Legion. 

Lynn brought focus, direction and greater clarity to the Programme, enabling us to unpick the varied and complex issues that we were facing and to ensure the best outcome for our beneficiaries.  Not only did Lynn secure the Charity Commission’s support but the targeted and open communication she led built trust and understanding with the large number of Branches affected, which was critical to the programme’s success. 

She also recruited and managed a wholly new team.  This was a major accomplishment and which contributed greatly to the success of the overall programme.  Although it represented significant changes to how the Legion dealt with its property, these changes were accomplished without problem or incident and that in itself was no small achievement."
