Individual Professional Development Coaching and Guidance

The world of international education is changing rapidly, especially in Asia. The rapid growth of international schools brings both opportunities and challenges, especially for the school leaders and managers. I provide a comprehensive and cost-effective consultancy service ranging from initial teacher training (e.g. PGCEi) to advanced management/leadership development and individual mentoring.

Researcher in Gender and Identity

Do you have a nomadic, hybridic identity? To what degree is sexuality biological? What does it mean to be a woman or man in the 21st Century? What is Professional Identity and how is globalisation changing this? Are we now at the Time of Women? Why is marriage going out of fashion? What are the social trends in Asia and the Middle East?

Contact me to discuss and find out more about these and similar major questions in the age of globalisation.
