Career summary

On leaving University I joined the NHS through their National General Management Graduate Scheme and spent some 10 years working up to General Manager, including 2 years working in a military hospital in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. In-between I spent 4 years working in the pharmaceutical industry working with BASF (now Abbott), first working in a field sales role influencing payers before being promoted to Head of Strategy. The last 10 years have been spent running a business psychology consultancy. My breadth of experience over the last 20 years as a manager and psychologist within the private (corporate and SME) and public sectors has helped me work more effectively with clients to improve individual, team and organisational effectiveness.

I'm a Chartered Psychologist with a passion for the following areas of practice: assessment and selection (including the applied use of psychometric instruments and design of selection processes); performance appraisal and personal development; career management; organisational development; and management/leadership development.

Interesting fact: I'm a qualified PADI Scuba Diver, albeit one who is somewhat out of practice.
