Director, Corporate Research Forum
Mike has worked in Senior HR roles in the US and Europe with major international businesses including Avon, Rowntree, Unilever and Hewlett Packard.
He founded CRF as a research consortium to investigate the principles and practices that make a difference in people management. He applied the same principles in forming PARC, a research group investigating good practice in the area of performance, reward and governance. He is also a founder of Strategic Dimensions, a leading HR recruitment business.
Mike sets the agenda for CRF/PARC’s annual international conference which has become Europe’s premier HR event. He speaks and comments at company events, judges on industry award programmes and is on the council of the Guild of HR Professionals. His extensive network embraces academics, politicians, business leaders, journalists and the senior HR profession.
He is particularly interested in how leadership teams embrace People Management and how this enhances (or detracts from) business performance.
