I am an innovator in risk management and corporate governance. I am fascinated with corporate culture and behaviour and passionate about the role good corporate governance should play in contributing to economic growth in a way which is good for both businesses and society. I have developed a range of executive educational materials and resources to assist boards and their organisations to improve corporate performance by enhancing governance, culture and resilience.
These include a powerful yet simple workshop approach which should make ticking time bombs such as what happened in Volkswagen to occur and bring them to attention if they do exist well before they go off while there is time to take action. Other resources include culture assessment, values assessment, ethical assessment, performance assessment and compliance assessment.
I lecture and have published on corporate governance, risk management, business ethics and corporate culture and can act as a programme manager for facilitating improvement in these areas. In Autumn 2014 I co-authored new research on culture and understanding corporate behaviour Culture and Channelling Corporate Behaviour Summary of Findings
I chair the Control and Risk Self Assessment Forum, a network of practitioners, academics and others interested in the cultural and behavioural aspects of governance and risk management.
