Paul specialises in complex assignments requiring the combination of technical understanding with the ability to bring together diverse stakeholder groups. He has experience presenting and liaising with senior policy makers, including reporting at Ministerial level.
An engineer by training, he has an extensive background in risk management as well as strong IT and data analysis skills. He has in-depth experience in the transport, environmental, power, water and third sectors, with some activity in healthcare and local government. Paul took nine years out from Risk Solutions to manage organisational development (OD) and change for an international charity, including five years based in their HQ in Singapore, working on worldwide changes to their governance, finance, HR and pensions.
He has studied organisational development with NTL, a top USA provider of OD and he is a Certified Professional Facilitator (CPF) with the International Association of Facilitators (IAF). He has a special interest and experience in long-term engagements across entire sectors or multi-organisation communities.
Paul lives in Cheshire with a teacher and a teenage son. The latter is his excuse for seeing every new super-hero or Transformers© movie that comes out – usually several times. Paul has no need to ever purchase any more pairs of Converse All Stars© boots – but he probably will.
