About me

In addition to being a half time senior lecturer at Westminster I am a partner in all about Talent a company established to assist organisations with their people development. Based on this experience I write regular articles on management and leadership issues available via Twitter:@allabouttalent.

Alongside aaT I lead the work of the independent Think Tank, Diverse Skills for Growth along with Dr Gillian Shapiro and Baroness Oona King. I chair the Board of Trustees for Terapia a leading training centre in integrative child psychology and counselling based in North West London. Until 2011 I was the Chief Executive Officer of the Broadcast Equality & Training Regulator (BETR). Prior to that, for ten years I managed a global media development department in the Business Consulting Services of IBM and held several posts in PricewaterhouseCoopers Consulting I began my career in broadcasting as a trainee at Thames TV.

I went on to be an owner/manager of three production companies specialising in location recording, computer graphics and post-production. In my academic roles I established and managed a Media Production BA at West Herts College and a MA degree in Media Management at the University of Hertfordshire. My book Managing in the Media was written to support these programmes.

Research

Currently I'm conducting research for my PhD on UK Government Skills Policy and its impact on the UK Broadcast Industry. I run occasional short courses on managing creative teams based on this research. See more on my personal website.
