Russell Thackeray thoroughly enjoys speaking to inspire delegates. He offers expert insight on organisation change, developing resilience and effective evaluation – providing key messages and tools to help delegates excel in the workplace.
Russell is an entrepreneur and human capital consultant who is highly experienced and passionate about improving people performance to increase business value, with a strong track record over a diverse client base.
Russell’s qualifications in Psychology, Executive Coaching and Business Administration at Masters Level have helped shape his dynamic, challenging and effective thinking. He has also lectured for Reading University and created new leadership content for the Chartered Management Institute.
With a strong background and interest in psychology, Russell joined forces with Tim Sparrow and Liz Morris back in 2000 to create the “Centre for Applied Emotional Intelligence” and brought EI into the UK by creating a practitioner approach and toolkits for practical application. He could see how Emotional Intelligence could be useful in the business world by linking it to behavioural psychology and neuroleadership creating toolkits to develop other trainers as well as delegates within organisations.
Russell Thackeray launched QED last year following many years of work with HR, L&D and senior Management Teams. The organisation blends together the concepts of ‘change’, resilience’ and ‘evaluation’ into a coherent set of consultancy offerings to clients. In addition to this, a range of training is offered to staff within organisations to build resilience – either overtly, or through change programmes or wider leadership development.
Russell has taken psychology and turned it into a practical resilience toolkit for the business setting. His innovative QED Organisation Development models, strategies and processes have been created to develop Resilient Cultures, Resilient Teams and Resilient People, which are paramount when dealing with and adapting to change.
