‘My 3 pieces of advice’ by Dana Grey

Be inclusive, lean back, and use your role to effect good change.

The “3 pieces of advice” series was born in 2019 as part of our annual event for in-house lawyers. These brief 5-minute slots were created as a platform for attendees to volunteer to share work and life advice with their fellow peers.

This latest video features Pension Protection Fund director of legal, compliance and ethics and data protection officer Dana Grey, sharing her 3 pieces of advice during lockdown.
