Joanna Watson

Joanna joined GGI as a Senior Consultant in September 2021. She previously worked at PwC for over 30 years, where she specialised in providing assurance services to public sector and not-for-profit bodies, specialising in the NHS and Higher Education.

Joanna’s experience includes internal and external audit, governance reviews (including well-led reviews in the NHS), risk management reviews, due diligence and investigations. She has considerable experience of working with boards, including board training and development on risk management and governance, and workshops to facilitate agreement of strategic objectives and risks.

She is skilled in building relationships and developing networks, and in using these effectively. She relishes challenges and enjoys developing solutions to solve complex problems.
