My interests and expertise encompasses leadership studies, organization theory and philosophy, organizational development and international development. I have six years’ experience of running large-scale international development initiatives in Lao People’s Democratic Republic, funded by the Australian Centre for International Agricultural Research. In addition, I am collaborating with the Malaria Elimination Initiative – a Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation funded research group based at the University of California, San Francisco – on malaria elimination programme management in Southern Africa and the Greater Mekong Sub-region.
I have extensive experience of running and teaching on leadership and executive development programmes internationally, including acting as a tutor for the London Business School EMBA core module ‘Business Ethics and Corporate Responsibility’. I have acted as an academic and personal coach to a number of senior executives in the private, public and not-for-profit sectors. My organizational and leadership development consultancy experience includes working with the UK NHS and a variety of other public and private sector organizations.
I am a fellow of the Leadership Trust Foundation and fellow of the Higher Education Academy. I have held visiting positions at the Helsinki School of Economics, the Royal Institute of Technology of Stockholm, Leicester University and the University of Humanistics, Utrecht.
