Meet the panellists


Richard Khaldi (1993), Chambers Director – Maitland Chambers

Richard spent over a decade working for economic regulators in the public sector before becoming a director at PA Consulting, an innovation and technology consultancy. Richard advised CEOs, boards and investors on how to navigate and make the best of the UK’s economic regulation framework. He also worked with other regulators and government departments on strategy and policy questions.

Richard left consultancy at the beginning of 2020 and returned to his legal roots. He is now Chambers Director for Maitland Chambers, one of the leading sets of barristers' chambers in the UK.


Emily Scott (2015), Business Analyst - McKinsey

After testing out working in a gallery, a trading floor and a rainforest, Emily was attracted to management consulting because it offered a variety of experiences, people and environments that she had always hoped for. 

Since starting her career in management consultancy, Emily has worked across public, social and private sector projects; highlights have included creating a pre-launch fundraising strategy for a new racial justice non-profit, to transforming the operating model of a top film organisation.


Anna Sherriff (2006), Principal Consultant - Gate One

Anna initially thought management consulting would be a financially sound way in which to spend her gap year, but 12 years later she’s still there. The wide variety of clients and their challenges has kept things interesting – she has run readiness events to help London prepare for the 2012 Olympics, improved digital services for adults looking for social care and helped pharmaceutical companies to be more patient focussed.

Anna recently took the plunge and left the world of big corporates. She is now enjoying working for Gate One, a digital innovation consulting firm.
