CV

I am researching the emerging and disappearing qualities of conversation in the processes of relating among people involved in organisational change.I am part of the new SDU Design Initiative http://sdudesign.sdu.dk  I see my contribution to the research in the truly interdisciplinary centre as insisting on a focus on human interaction as transformative; with the involved conflicts, power relations and political negotiations as constraining and enabling innovation and stability in organisations.

 In my work I have come to focus on the importance of the present moment and understanding the emerging and disappearing qualities of spontaneous activities in relating among humans.

For a decade I worked as consultant in occupational health service in industry and in the public sector, followed by another decade in an organisational consultancy. In 2000 I met the thinking of Complex Responsive Processes of Relating, and I did my second doctorate at the Complexity and Management Centre (CMC) at University of Hertfordshire.
