Stephen Carver is rated as one of the top three lecturers at one of Europe’s top MBA business schools. He has a reputation of taking complex management concepts such as project, programme and crisis management and being able to distill them down into highly informative and fun lectures - often using “storytelling” techniques. His attitude is “if you haven’t done it – you shouldn’t be teaching it!”

Stephen’s credentials include 30 years in change projects and programmes, as well as being a risk, communications and crisis expert. He has also worked at Board level in Europe, USA, Middle East & Asia. He is also a Fellow of the Association for Project Management and the Institute of Risk Management.

Unusually, for an academic, he has actually spent most of his working life in real business and still runs his own, highly successful, project management company (his client list now reads like the FTSE/Dow top 100!)

Stephen is an unusual blend of academic, businessman and teller of tales. He has taught in the UK, USA, Middle East, Holland, Germany, France, Portugal, Singapore, Hong Kong and Australia etc. etc. and has appeared regularly on national radio and TV.
