Business School Visiting Professor
York Business School
I am the master of the MDQ (Massively Difficult Question) – ones that challenge leaders to think about what they do and why. Author of more than 50 books, I bring a wealth of practical experience and leading edge research to developing leaders at the top. Visiting professor at two universities, I work across the world, stimulating top teams to become role models for learning and to examine how they can raise their collective performance. A successful entrepreneur in my own right, I make serious management topics accessible through humour, story and provoking perspectives. I am regarded as a leading global authority on coaching and mentoring, and on Board behaviours. I am available for speeches and masterclasses, internationally.
Every year I take on a major new learning challenge – from sky-diving to mountaineering, learning to be a masseur and stand-up comedy.
