Dr Paul Thomas

Paul is known by the BBC as ‘The Business Doctor' and is an experienced and respected thought leader, author and trail blazer on matters relating to change, organisational development and structures that allow people to thrive and flourish within 21st century organisations.

Paul works with private and public sector organisations of all sizes, including multi-nationals. He is committed to demonstrating that there are effective ways to run the workplace, with increased outcomes and service effectiveness, and without losing front-line staff. Paul believes in unlocking the potential of the staff to solve the problems themselves through Simplexity and Leadership from within. Paul’s dislike of management practices is nothing personal — he just thinks the way most businesses are managed is outdated.

Paul has previously been a University Head of Leadership and a Leadership Fellow and is currently a University Research Fellow. His work has taken him to India, China, Malaysia, Pakistan, the USA and many European countries. He completed a global action research project on leadership and complexity thinking, visiting 19 countries in six months. He is currently 2013-14 elected Regional Chair and Fellow for Wales for the Chartered Management Institute (CMI) and a Fellow of the Chartered Sports Management (CIMSPA) and Institute of Consultancy.

Paul is considered by many to be a fascinating and impressive business speaker, and is much in demand throughout the world, from TEDx to global and international conferences.

Paul is also author of the book ‘Leadership from the Frontline’, about his impassioned mission to support forward-thinking, progressive and ‘human’ business organisations by helping them to get rid of the plague of unnecessary management that he believes is stifling our working lives and our economy.
