Biography

I became enthused about HRM when helping restructure British Rail for privatisation. Ever since I’ve been committed to helping managers make their organisations both productive and great places to work. I promote this idea when speaking on radio about industrial disputes, promoting positive management practices in organisations, or working with students like you on our courses.
