At present I am providing maternity cover for the Head of Media and Communications.

My background includes more than seventeen years’ experience delivering corporate communications to improve business results in companies across four sectors: oil and gas, telecommunications, mining and banking which means I am relatively new to the HE sector although I have recently finished a taught Master's degree at another institution.

My recent focus has been on internal communications and I've worked closely with leaders in organisations to enhance employee engagement and understanding of the context for their work.  In particular, I have worked on developing effective employee communications to improve health and safety performance in the energy industry and I have a proven track record of building local capacity to deliver world class communications in challenging environments.   

My professional experience has been gathered in the UK, Russia, Germany, Thailand and Japan with companies such as Deutsche Bank, TNK-BP, Sakhalin Energy Investment Company, SUAL Holding, Energis and BG Group.
