Our People

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.
