Dear friends,

I decided to design a personal web-site in order to provide a central forum for communicating with students and clients (both current and former).

Please excuse the self-promotional nature of the contents found here. But the intent is to link this site to my profiles at the academic institutions that I am associated with; and as such, it is necessary to provide the type of personal information that visitors to such sites require.

I have tried to design a site that provides updates on recent professional projects and activites that I am involved in. For academics who are interested in the research that I am undertaking or for organisations in the public sector in search of public management training or consultancy, please feel free to contact me.
