Stephen is rated as one of the top 3 lecturers at Europe’s top Business Schools - Cranfield. He has a reputation of taking complex management concepts and being able to distil them down, into highly informative and fun lectures - often using “storytelling” techniques. His attitude is “if you haven’t done it – you shouldn’t be teaching it!”
Unusually, for an academic, he has actually has spent most of his working life in real business and still runs his own, highly successful, project management company (his client list now reads like the FTSE/Dow top 100!)
Stephen is an unusual blend of academic, businessman and teller of tales. He has taught in UK, US, Holland, Germany, France, Portugal, Singapore, Hong Kong and Australia, and has appeared on national radio and TV.
