Her early pioneering work with Patrick Aldwell and Richard Green and Tony Zwart has been critical to the coordination of the iconic Nuffield and Kellogg Leaders programmes and their continual modernisation to ensure that modern scholars get world class leadership development.

We were sad to see Anne go, but grateful for her vision and commitment to the primary sector and Rural Leaders over the last six years.
