Arthur is a leadership development specialist working from South Wales. He combines academic interests
with practical assignments and has been researching the role that walking can play in development opportunities
as well as in the fabric of everyday working in corporate and public service settings.
Within the Leadership Development Group he is interested in how walking, both in town and country, narrow or expansive, opens out opportunities for dialogue, storytelling, narrative and reflective spaces and sees that the lessons learnt from these can be applied in leadership settings to enhance and support corporate development and progress.
Arthur's approaches are collaborative and innovative and his curiosity has opened up many avenues of other research but particularly in the use of space and placeand the role artefacts plays in learning and the understanding of concepts.
