Director, Head of YSC Edinburgh

With an initial background at the clinical end of psychology, Ed then pursued an extensive HR leadership career in both public and private sectors. He led Executive Development at the University of Edinburgh Business School and taught the core leadership element of the MBA programme, where he also developed widely publicised research in the area of Emotional Intelligence and Management. He has spoken at numerous conferences and industry led bodies and is known for his current work with leaders on the transitions they require to be successful.

At YSC, Ed has a reputation for getting close to client needs and looking at the art of the possible rather that posing a one size fits all solution.  His diverse spread across industries means he spots trends and helps organisations plan for the future rather than just survive in the present.
