A bit about me
My primary role is in leading the business and operational side of the college and its strategic development, as well as the great team of staff we have here. I also have the pleasure of engaging closely with students through my work as a pastoral group tutor and with some former students as a spiritual companion.
Besides my work at Trinity I am closely involved with Bristol Diocese as chair of the Board of Finance and in accompanying clergy through ministerial development review; I am also a lay canon of Bristol Cathedral. For many years I chaired the governors of Bristol’s Church of England secondary school, an excellent local school which a good number of the children of Trinity students attend.
One of my keen interests is children’s spirituality (a passion shared by my colleague Howard Worsley) and once a year I have the privilege of leading a session with Trinity students on aspects of the spiritual formation of children and young people.
Another area of interest is leadership, especially collaborative leadership. My master’s is in Strategy, Change and Leadership and my dissertation focused on exploring leadership from the perspective of complexity theory and relationality. It sees leadership more in terms of process than person and understands collaboration, and a collaborative culture, to be of fundamental significance.
