Ken is a business orientated human resource and employment law consultant specialising in boosting individual and organisational performance by enabling managers and directors to act with confidence when tackling issues that may present potential legal problems. Despite government intentions, employment law has become increasingly complex. Employees can take their employer to ‘court’ without any costs, and with compensation awards now having exceeded £4 million, it is not surprising that managers can be nervous and fail to tackle issues effectively.
Ken specialises in exploding the myths and removing anxieties about employment law through his clear and lively presentations and training. As a result, managers and Directors then feel more confident to resolve practical people issues in the workplace, and take the necessary action in their business to avoid future problems. Ken uses his understanding of managing businesses to show managers what they ‘can do’ rather than what they ‘cannot do’. His unique proposition is that he combines a background in line management, corporate HR/Personnel, and seven years as a consultant with a major law firm, to deliver practical solutions that improve performance. This experience, which has included providing a full range of personnel management services to small companies without their own HR manager, enables Ken to illustrate his presentations with real life examples relevant to a wide variety of enterprises. He is also much in demand as a specialist speaker and trainer on issues of interest to HR professionals and employment lawyers, and has had articles published in People Management, Personnel Today, and Management Development International. Ken’s lively style has provided CEOs, Directors and senior managers with an opportunity to gain a quick overview of employment law, and enabled them to act with increased confidence when tackling issues at work, and protecting the interests of their business.
