Jago Brown

Educational Innovation and Design Manager


Currently I work in the IT department helping to develop the LMS and its processes, user analytics and integrations with MIS.  Prior to this I was eLearning coordinator at an FE college, where developing systems to enhance the student & teacher experience were core responsibilities.  This role combined for the first time my previous experiences in teaching and working in interactive media development.

Lydia Hesketh

Head of Brand


Starting at Bloomsbury Institute mid-2018, I led and managed our re-brand from LSBM to the brand you see today.

I have a degree in English Literature and Art History – after graduating I used my interest in both written and visual content to begin a career in marketing. My initial roles focused on digital marketing before I then branched out into brand strategy and implementation.

Fiona Richardson

Lecturer: Business


A career in local government as a senior manager of two departmental offices and their staff, as well as dealing with a diverse range of stakeholders including local and national companies, was followed by a switch to running my own educational services company. Later, I moved onto an educational management position in a business school where I designed course materials and taught both business subjects and academic skills which I have now been doing for many years both in the UK and abroad.
