Full Profile

Max joined UCLan full time in 2017 having been in different guises of education environments for a considerable length of time.  Her teaching is currently focused on international human resource management, but she has an eclectic interest in most things business and management (except for finance!) and particularly the use of the ‘human resource’ to maximise organisational performance within an ethical and sustainable values base.

She is keen to foster teaching environments where learning can occur and where students, delegates or pupils develop skills, knowledge and curiosity about the subject under study (be it chemistry or coaching) and gain awareness of themselves as learners on that journey. She especially enjoys exploring the use of technology to support that curiosity through collaboration, communication and co-creation of learning content.

Max has delivered professional accredited courses for the CIPD and ILM and is also an accredited user of tools such as the ‘Team Management Profile’ and ‘Windmills Working, Learning, Playing, Giving’ career management programme. She enjoys working with others to develop good practice that supports and champions positive working relationships and work environments.
