Through my work at various levels, from individual through team to whole organization, I try to help people ignite that spark and bring their full potential into being. I have a particular fascination with adult development: how we can grow our ability to deal with increasingly complex challenges and transform the way we think and see the world.
I have been working in my current field for over twenty years. Originally I trained as a linguist and spent some time living and teaching in Spain; I then worked in higher education development and innovation policy, before taking up a role as an expert consultant in organization at McKinsey and Company, where I stayed for nine years.
I love travelling and eating, mostly with my wife Ann now that my two sons are away at university. I try to keep fit, having completed more than 20 triathlons, and enjoy reading and cinema. I am a trustee for the refugee charity Safe Passage, and do pro bono coaching for social enterprise CEOs.
