Ann Whitehead originally studied law. In her early career she worked in environmental management, later switching careers to the wellbeing industry. One of the reasons for changing direction being her frustration with producing recommendations that were not actioned, with the lower standard of ‘legal compliance’ often the preferred choice of the client, rather than the higher standard of ‘best practice’.
Passionate about politics she has campaigned on various subjects close to her heart. This made her realise how much misinformation voters are deliberately exposed to. An optimist by nature, Ann hopes this book can contribute to a healthier political landscape.
