LearningLearning has been at the heart of my work for the last 25 years and continues to be the main focus of my consultancy. I am interested in how people learn and how best to improve the quality of their learning.
TechnologyOne of my areas of expertise is around the implementation of digital technologies in educational contexts. Focusing on how they can be scaled sustainably to maximise their positive impact on learning.
InnovationMy passion continues to be around developing and applying creative solutions that add value to my client's businesses rather than pushing change for its own sake.
ConsultancyI am a self-employed independent consultant working on my own or with associates to provide advice, practical support and research to clients across the public, private and third sectors.
This website promotes my learning, technology and innovation consultancy.
I blog (irregularly) as a way of trying to capture where I have been and where I am planning on going next. Keeping track of some of the people, places and ideas that I have come across on what has been a wonderful professional journey deep into the heart of learning.
I have been self-employed since 2009 working with great clients to improve learning. Previously I was national director of learning and technology and head of future learning and teaching. My background is in schools and local government educational advisory services.
