I love getting under the skin of corporate life. Cracking thorny people issues. Delving into why boards and management teams are not functioning as they should. Providing robust, evidence-based analysis in times of stress and change.
This website sets out who I am, my beliefs about the world of work and my thoughts on the economic and social disruptors that are turning corporations on their heads. It also provides links to my blogs and publications.
My career has spanned public policy and regulation, HR, financial journalism and economic consultancy. I have more than 20 years' experience as a board advisor, including as an Executive Director of the Bank of England and as Economics Editor of The Times of London. I am a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Personnel Development, the UK's professional body for HR and people development. And I started off my working life as a professional economist, which is probably why I'm still a data geek at heart.
Outside the workplace I am a passionate advocate for the rights of children with Special Educational Needs - including, but not limited to, neurodiversity.
