About Joe…

What do you value about the work we do at Lankelly Chase? I value that we take a different view of things. I value our partners. I value that we don’t necessarily look for inputs and outputs.

I value that we knowingly take risks.

Ask me about… Our partners; power; language; which crisps to pair with a sandwich; West Ham
