I am the Wellbeing Lead at the UK College of Policing and the Senior Responsible Owner (SRO) for the National Police Wellbeing Service in the UK. I also supports the National Forum for Health and Wellbeing at Manchester University Alliance Business School. I am an Honorary Researcher at Lancaster University Management School and a Visiting Fellow at the Open University Business School. I hold a PhD in Management and Social Psychology and an MBA from Lancaster University.
My research interests are centred on wellbeing, resilience, and transformation in the context of policing, and most notably I introduced the concept and phenomenon of Leaveism to explain human behaviours associated with workplace workload and stress. I am a Member of the Society for Education and Training, a Fellow of the Chartered Management Institute, and a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts.
