I am a passionate purpose-driven educator who believes in the power of positive change and influence through education. Grounded in over a decade of teaching and practitioner research, I actively work to shift mindsets in the area of talent management and leadership, with a focus on diversity and inclusion. Combining my academic and consultancy expertise, I create robust and engaging experiences for my students, weaving theory and practice together. I currently teach Bachelor and Masters’ courses: Global People Management – HRM & Leadership, Human Resource Management and Labour Market Theory and Analysis.
