About me

Through my work as a consultant and trainer, I help organisations take innovative approaches to their development and growth. One of my main areas of interest and expertise is organisational learning in NGOs and I’m passionate about enabling organisations to recognise their collective expertise, develop their intelligence, increase their adaptability and become healthier and more enjoyable places in which to work.

I have worked on these issues with international and national NGOs and networks in over 30 countries on three continents since I began as an organisational consultant and trainer in 1984.

I received an MBA from Edinburgh University and I have degrees in Environmental Sciences and Social Work. Over the past few years I have written a number of influential publications on organisational learning and knowledge management in NGOs: ‘The Learning NGO‘, ‘Learning for Change’ and ‘Organisational Learning in NGOs: Creating the Motive, Means and Opportunity‘.

I am a member of Framework – a values-based consultancy collective committed to equality, social justice and ethical practice that works exclusively with non-profit sector organisations around the world.

I live in St Andrews, Scotland with my partner. My two daughters live in Nova Scotia, Canada and London.

  2. Hi Asma

    Thanks for your interest in my questionnaire. I am happy for anyone to use it and I would be very interested to hear about your experience of using it when your research is completed. In a separate email I have sent you an excel version that automatically totals the scores and plots the ‘spider diagram’.

    Good luck, Bruce
