Our People

Eleonora Affronte

Academic Administrator


I joined Bloomsbury Institute in 2014 as a student, completing an HND in Business and Management in 2016 and graduating from (Hons) in Business and Management in 2017. Consequently, I decided to carry on my postgraduate studies at Bloomsbury Institute, completing an MBA and graduating in November 2018. Being a previous student and MBA STAR representative at Bloomsbury Institute gave me the opportunity to improve my knowledge and skills and deal with different situations with academics. I received an award for ‘Contribution to Academic Life at Bloomsbury Institute’ in May 2018.

Abul Hashem

After I completed my studies here at Bloomsbury Institute, I joined the Student Engagement, Wellbeing and Success team in 2019. I support and guide our students throughout their time with us and also once they graduate, providing employability support, peer assisted learning and a range of wellbeing activities.

I have taught English for 11 years in many countries around the world including Egypt, Portugal, Qatar, Vietnam, Indonesia and Argentina.

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.
