Really Good Ideas


MSc Organisational Psychology

Chartered Civil Engineer

Practitioner Member of the Association of Business Psychology

I have extensive engineering and corporate development experience in the infrastructure sector and a record of delivering novel behavioural insights projects. 

I began my career in engineering consultancy, later moving to major projects contracting before leading strategy and business development projects in the managed services sector. 

I advise clients on the behavioural aspects of major infrastructure projects, procurement exercises and provide a critical review of behavioural programmes in both the programme implementation and mobilisation phases. 

I am also an Associate Tutor for Birkbeck’s Organisational Psychology MSc and an Independent Financial Adviser. 

When not engrossed in all the above I escape to enjoy running and cycling in the hills and woods near where I live.
