    Founder and Managing Director

    As MD of the company I get involved in all of our activities. I am particularly excited about the opportunities social tools provide for creating collaborative learning experiences. I am a publisher by background and so I keep a close eye on our range of CPD courses, but whether we develop something for sale or to meet a clientís needs I always try to focus on the end user.

    I am a past director of the eLearning Network and a frequent judge of the annual eLearning Awards. I am Chair of the ICAEW Practice Assurance Committee and was for some years a member of the ACCA SME Committee.

    As Publisher at Nelson Croom, I am responsible for shaping and then delivering our publishing programme. I research the market so I can make informed publishing decisions about the areas we should focus on. I then seek out authors who are experts in their field and commission them to write content in response to the needs of the market, our partners, and our learners.

    I am also a guest lecturer at Kingston University on their MA in Publishing where I regularly introduce their students to the processes involved in managing a publishing project.

    Account Manager

    I work as the Project Manager on all Nelson Croom's bespoke projects. As our bespoke projects involve creating online courses for a wide and diverse range of clients and subjects, I now have a little knowledge about a lot of things! I think it is this diversity of subjects that has kept me interested in the work for so long as there's always something fascinating I learn from every project we work on.

    I now work from home in North Yorkshire for the majority of the time, with at least fortnightly visits to London so I can still meet face to face with clients as required. Outside of work I spend most of my time riding and competing my horse, Grace.

    Development Manager

    As development manager at Nelson Croom I organise the development team to ensure that all our courses are created to the highest possible standards. I do everything I can to make sure the courses address the specific needs of the clients' user base; I want every Nelson Croom course to be truly relevant and properly adapted to the people using them.

    I'm always keen to pursue any possibilities and innovations within courses that will improve the flexibility, usability and customisability of our platform, Imago.

    I have a digital, editorial and educational background, having worked in the past at various online magazines, at Penguin, and as a qualified English Instructor.

    Technical Director

    As Technical Director for Nelson Croom I work away at the continuous adaptation and development of our technological capabilities to better support the needs of both our clients and learners. You might think that after 15 years of developing our Imago system, life would have become routine. In fact, the pace of change continues to increase and weíve always got a whole pot full of ideas for new features and facilities that Iím looking forward to tackling.

    Founder and Chairman

    As Chairman of Nelson Croom I work with Alan on the strategy and direction of the organisation, as well as chairing our board meetings and managing our shareholders.

    The inspiration for Nelson Croom came whilst doing mediaeval history at Bristol University in the late 1990s. As a publisher for 30 years, I was intrigued by studying history online and that started me thinking about the wider potential for online learning.
