ABOUT ME

I read economics at UCL, going on to teach economics at St Albans Independent College before pursuing a very enjoyable career in the arts, including writing and presenting.  I later took an Open University degree and an MRes in Vertebrate Palaeontology at Southampton University.  It is great to be back at University College London again!

 

I have worked for 22 years as a consultant and facilitator, delivering behavioural change, coaching and communication skills training to businesses.  This work has taken me all over the world, delivering interactive training sessions to public and private organisations, charities and Universities including the BBC, NATO, The Sanger Institute, Wellcome Trust, Ashridge Management College, and Civil Service departments such as The Diplomatic Service and The Ministry of Defence among others. 

 

I have maintained a strong interest in teaching, and am a 'Brilliant Club' tutor teaching palaeontology courses to KS4 and KS5 students, as well as running KS2 workshops on topics such as evolution, rocks and fossils.
