I am the Programme Director for Sheffield Hallam University in London, with responsibility for the strategic leadership and operational direction of our new campus development. I joined Sheffield Hallam in 2009 as Head of Strategic Planning and subsequently became Director of Strategy, Planning and Insight. I have worked on a number of major initiatives that have shaped the University, including the Transforming Lives Strategy and the Management Information and Planning Improvement programme which led to ‘The Source’ and a step change in the delivery and use of data across the University. My career in Higher Education began in 2005 at the University of Sheffield. Prior to this I worked in international development and humanitarian programmes for Oxfam, where I held positions in the UK, Latin America and East Asia.
