Lucy Saffin, Marketing

“We’re bombarded with promises of ways to make our lives simpler that don’t necessarily translate. You often want a straightforward solution without the need to consult a lawyer to understand it.  It sounds obvious but it’s a real differentiator with Storey. I try to work on the premise that if I don’t understand it – no one will!”
