Sue came to EWI in 2007 as a consultant, shortly after the organisation moved from Africa House, in the days when Janette Guiliford was CEO and Andrew Grantham was Treasurer. After 4 years she left for a short break and then returned in 2013. Sue is the longest serving staff member and is now like a piece of the furniture. Her main role is to produce all things financial and report to the CEO. 

If you need any information about finances, she is the go-to person. Prior to being at EWI, Sue was the founder and owner of an office furniture company for 23 Years, quite a different environment to where she is now.

Wiebke Morgan - Membership Manager

I am of German/Latvian descent and have lived and worked in London for over 30 years, after having met my husband here. I have worked in membership associations and professional bodies for over 20 years. I joined the EWI in 2021 from Lincoln’s Inn, where I had been Member Services Manager. Member satisfaction and engagement are my top priorities, so please do get in touch with any problems/queries you might have.

Outside work, I love reading ‘Golden Era’ crime novels and am a member of the Ephemera Society. I also collect fairy tales and own a couple of dolls houses.

Sean has 20 years’ experience working in policy roles in government, a regulator, and the private sector, both in his native New Zealand, and in the UK. He has worked in a range of industries including telecommunications, energy, and medical devices. Sean holds a Masters degree in Commercial Law and is the co-author of a textbook on telecommunications law in New Zealand. 

Sean's key role is to ensure that EWI and its members keep ahead of changes to rules, regulations, and materials on expert evidence, and are aware of recent expert evidence in court judgements. He is responsible for ensuring that policy changes on the provision of expert evidence are fully informed by the experience and expertise of EWI and its members.

Outside of work, Sean enjoys reading, travelling, and hiking in the beautiful Yorkshire Dales. 

Graeme Berney-Edwards - Membership Administrator

I’ve just returned to the workplace having taken some time out to be a stay-at-home dad to our now 6-year-old twins. My career path up until this point was mainly customer service based in a range of sectors including retail banking, road haulage and the airline industry. I’ve also managed to dabble in a bit of on-screen extra work, handyman and gardening services along the way.
I’m looking forward to fresh challenges ahead, supporting the rest of the team and of course meeting and recruiting new members.

Having a young family and dog keeps me busy in the little spare time I get – so I do enjoy a good film and a glass of wine at the weekend.
