Operations Executive, Consultant, and Historian

I am an independent scholar of eighteenth and nineteenth century honor culture in Europe and North America. I hold a PhD from the Department of War Studies at King’s College London. You can find my PhD dissertation here. You can find my books on Amazon.com.

Commercial Work

My primary focus is on operational and organizational innovation for energy, telecoms, media, technology, retail, and defense organizations. I also create and deliver pragmatic education and training for professionals. I have previously worked in executive leadership positions for Amazon.com, Lastminute.com, N Brown PLC, and IBM. More recently, I have helped Skype, Ebay, last.fm, Belkin, Spotify, and BMW UK deliver innovation in their operations. I blog about my self-employment and other business topics at The New Yeoman.
