Paul has enjoyed a thirty-year career in leadership development and organisational change. He has been VP of HR for the USA division of WHSmith. He was the VP of Leadership for Canadian food giant Maple Leaf Foods and most recently he has been the VP of People for the international division of Camelot Lotteries. His work with good bosses has given him hope.
