She is a public policy expert who has worked on a range of social policy projects for think-tanks Demos and the Institute for Public Policy Research.

Yiu is a former senior official at The Treasury and the Prime Minister’s Strategy Unit and has worked as a consultant at McKinsey & Company before joining the think-tank Policy Exchange as the head of its Digital Government Unit.  

He is also director of digital participation at the Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations.

Sean Worth, director of Westminster Policy Institute, said: "Business can no longer sit on the sidelines without having a voice in big policy issues. Whoever forms the next government will want business leaders playing a much more open and positive role in policymaking, which is why we’re expanding on our policy analysis and thought leadership offerings."
