Learning and Development

Supporting the development of the health research community.

My approach to learning and development is informed by my long standing professional commitment to supporting the personal development of health researchers working within clinical and academic settings, as well as enabling the development of cultures of research within NHS organisations.

I bring to my work a distinctive background of over 30 years experience of working in senior clinical, managerial and educational roles in the NHS, voluntary and academic sectors, together with extensive experience of designing and delivering

  • postgraduate programmes
  • workshops, seminars
  • residential courses
  • conferences
  • supervising students at Masters, Doctoral and Postdoctoral levels.
  • commercial exhibitions
  • arts based workshops

I have worked locally, regionally and nationally to facilitate engagement with research and researcher development.

The combination of my extensive knowledge, experience and coaching skills anchors my facilitation in the creation of an interactive, supportive environment. This not only enables people to increase their knowledge, skills and expertise but also, as importantly, provides a vehicle for personal reflection and exploration to facilitate the translation of learning into action.

Co-production is central to my approach to ensure that the work I deliver is responsive to the needs of the people and organisations with whom I work.
