Faculties are rethinking programme teaching methods to teach partly/fully online in the autumn 2020 semester or the full year ahead. Learn quickly what is effective and achievable, bring the right resources into the project and use experienced people to see it through.

Online professional profile

Online social networks are different from the conference circuit. Social media’s changed the professional environment and it’s important to participate carefully and effectively. I provide online networking and career coaching services.

Internships and placements

I help institutions to brief and manage employers effectively and to prepare participants thoroughly so that they benefit fully  and gain commercial awareness. I wrote wrote a series of guides for Vitae that will help you to shape and manage internships and placement programmes.

Outplacement for universities

I am a fully trained redundancy coach. Outplacement coaching helps people recognise the need for change and make sense of their situation. Maintaining university reputation, it reduces stress, makes job-seeking more successful and supports affected individuals and those who stay.

The greatest hazard in life is to risk nothing.
