Lorna Gemmell, EL & HR Training Manager
Some trainers have a flare for delivery; others have the technical knowledge to ensure that the important messages delivered are completely accurate. With over a decade of hands-on advisory and Tribunal experience as a qualified employment lawyer, coupled with more than five years’ experience as a dedicated trainer, Lorna is able to deliver both.
Lorna plans and delivers our popular programme of public training events, ranging from our bi-annual free employment law updates through to special events and conferences. She also works with organisations to prepare and deliver bespoke and engaging in-house management training programmes tailored to meet the organisation’s objectives.
Lorna is frequently complimented for her engaging and informal delivery style and her ability to respond quickly and accurately to delegate questions. She is curious by nature and enjoys getting to know the people and organisations that she works with. Watch what you tell her though or you may find it re-hashed into a case study at her next training session!

We moved our legal support to WorkNest (formerly Law at Work) having previously used a time and line law firm. It was important, though, that an all-inclusive fee structure did not come at the expense of quality. Thankfully we’ve been delighted with the service we’ve received from WorkNest.”
What we recognised in WorkNest is the background that they have. They are able to supply knowledge and experience in a number of disciplines, which enables us to develop our business in a way that’s safe, to do it on time and with a quality to it.”
