Visiting Professor of Transformational Leadership,

As a thought leader on Leadership and Entrepreneurial HR, I chair conferences, present and run masterclasses, write, and undertake research to push forward the effectiveness of leadership and its benefits for individuals, teams, organisations and wider society. This supports senior leaders, HR teams, CEOs, CFOs and other professionals together with line management at all levels. For HR teams it provides insight into the delivery of talent and leadership development, in order to deliver world-class organisational performance. As a trusted advisor, researcher and business partner, I enable organisations to turn the ideas into action to get the best from their people, quickly, simply and effectively, using minimum resources.
