Dr Ian Madley

Associate Director, Business Relations

The theme through my career has been leading and driving growth or major change. What I bring to organisations is a combination of strong strategic thinking and an ability to drive projects through to completion. Importantly I have been able to do this in a wide range of organisations large and small as well as private and public sector.
