I lead Arup University, bringing together our specialists in diverse fields to shape programmes which accelerate the development of our capability. My background is in structural engineering, and leading multi-disciplinary teams on complex projects towards excellent outcomes has shaped the approach I take.

I believe most people are naturally motivated to reach beyond what they already know, for something even better, and my job is to make these steps as easy as possible. 

Through Arup University, and through our communities of practice, which we call Skills Networks, we create a momentum that involves everyone in stretching their horizons as well as building in a resilience and assurance to our work. 

Above all I’m interested in how important organisational development is in enabling individuals and teams to flourish, and how a clear strategy is the flip side to effective action on the ground.
