I have worked at the cutting edge of social and political science in academia for over fifteen years and I would like to bring some of that experience to the world of business, organisations and professional development more generally.
I start from the premise that as academic and scientific fields become more fragmented and specialized, important advances in the development of knowledge can become obscured amid the competitive pressures for differentiation.
On the other hand, to respond to real life economic, social, political and cultural problems, what we need are dynamic, flexible, integrated situational assessments.
The challenge then is to combine a long term, deep commitment to truth, analytical rigour and knowledge accumulation, with socially sensitive methods and strategies for intervention in specific contexts and circumstances.
I draw on my training and research across social sciences and a specific regimen of keeping my knowledge up-to-date to integrate various forms of insight, to design a rigorous and responsive approach to specific problems, one that has a better chance to resonate and make a difference.
Thus, I am looking to secure commissions that have twin objectives: they advance fundamental science, the understanding of economic, social and political phenomena and they are useful and effective in response to pressing social needs, large or small.
Actively tackling our blind spots, the areas of personal and professional expression neglected in the past is an arduous, brave process that requires patience as well as willingness to embrace vulnerability.
I draw on a variety of sources – formal knowledge, from social science research, as well as psychology, literature and the arts – to design learning experiences for professionals interested in self-development.
Current offerings include research and writing projects, individual and corporate training to facilitate the development of skills and minds, and strategic partnerships for decision makers in business and politics.
