He is extremely experienced at facilitating and developing groups, either open-access or corporate, and getting them to acknowledge and appreciate the issues and situations that face them. From this they can then begin to take ownership before engaging with, developing and delivering appropriate and innovative solutions to challenging managerial dilemmas.

Our latest film offers a local perspective on the wider history of the National Health Service.
Set up in 1948, the newly nationalised provision of healthcare, now known as the NHS, was desperately short of staff. Unable to recruit closer to home, the British government began to recruit overseas.
This production highlights the contribution of African Caribbean people to the building of the NHS locally. It traces a longer history of compassionate care that includes Mary Seacole and other early pioneers.
It also acknowledges how knowledge of specific health-related needs including sickle cell disorder and thalassemia, diabetes and mental health has prompted healthcare initiatives and community self-help schemes.
The need for early intervention and greater partnership at the community level are identified as necessary steps as the NHS continues to adapt and evolve to meet the needs of Britain’s diverse communities.
Produced as part of Black History Month 2020, this video is made in partnership with the University of Huddersfield and has received funding from the Society of Social History and the Society for the Study of Labour History.
