Judy combined rigour and thoroughness with informality, valuably getting members of the Board and the Executive to relax both in meetings which she observed and in one-to-one interviews. She also established a positive relationship with the Chairman and Chief Executive of the Financial Conduct Authority, who oversee our Service and took an interest in the review; this was particularly helpful in concentrating their minds on key issues of concern to them.
