As Director of Learning in one of the Big 4 professional services firms,

and assessment at the most senior level. He played a major role in developing
the firm’s global programmes, and has advised and designed and delivered

As Head of Development at an award-winning local authority, Stewart set

individuals are not only deployed in the right way but also motivated to work
towards the best interests of the business. His interest is in:
the culture, direction and needs of his clients; where
they are now and where they want to be in the future
down deep to understand how talented people are identified
and implementing initiatives to ensure talented people
are deployed appropriately, developed effectively and
retained by the organisation
