Meet the tutor - Rene Barrett:

I am an independent development consultant, a fellow of the CIPD, with an MBA, have extensive understanding of the transformation and devolution agenda and the needs of practitioners across the public, private and voluntary sectors. I am also an Associate with North West Employers and The NHS North West Leadership Academy and a prime deliverer on current GM Leadership Programmes, Masterclasses and Workshops.

My previous experience includes being Director of Development at North West Employers, Assistant Director of HR with Salford Council and Director of Learning for the GMB trade union. I have extensive employee relations experience and am regarded as a leading regional figure in relation to workforce development and skills.

I support organisations both regionally and nationally in the diverse areas of leadership and management, workforce development, partnership working, action learning, and the development of creative problem solving skills. Increasingly I am working with clients, both individually and organisationally on building resilience, wellbeing and flourishing.
