A media professional of soon-to-be 30 years' standing, I use my journalistic skills and experience to help people all over the world to become better managers and leaders, and to enjoy more successful careers, through first-class e-learning content
I've been a journalist since the age of 19. I've lived and worked around the UK, taking in local newspapers, radio, B2B and consumer magazines, freelancing and news agencies along the way. I am currently head of editorial at Mind Tools, an e-learning provider specialising in management, leadership and career skills development. I lead a team of editorial professionals who produce a range of content designed to help people to lead and manage better, to enjoy successful careers, and to contribute positively to their organisations' success.
Since spending eight years on the editorial staff of the UK's leading monthly magazine for learning and development practitioners (four of those as editor) prior to joining Mind Tools, and meeting many people throughout my career whose lives have been transformed by learning, I've developed an understanding of - and a deep appreciation for - the positive benefits that learning and development can have on people's lives, particularly in helping them to become better managers and leaders, and to enjoy more successful careers as a result. I use that understanding and appreciation, alongside the skills and experience I've acquired during nearly 30 years as a journalist, to help to produce e-learning content that really makes a difference to the Mind Tools audience.
Achieved the goal I set for myself at the age of 13 to become a journalist (and have had a great time doing so!)
