Professor Sam Twiselton's (OBE) background embodies the ethos of the Society for Institutional & Organizational Economics: academic excellence underpinned by rigorous research and application. The challenges she faced there, during a time of turbulent educational change at national level, left her with the skills and determination to push the SIoE towards fulfilling its potential as a focus for real-world excellence pushing practice and policy forward.
