Chief Executive & Head of Research
Darren’s PhD thesis addresses behavioural change in the unemployed and the impact of resilience upon job outcomes. Following a full time MBA at the prestigious Cranfield School of Management, he grew a government-funded employment service company twelvefold. Upon selling the company to a division of the $300m turnover Anglia Ruskin University, Darren migrated to Australia to concentrate upon the research and implementation of behavioural science.
He keynotes at conferences concerning employment, youth, offending, welfare and behavioural science, and is grateful to count many of the world’s leading authorities, scientists and senior civil servants amongst his direct contacts and friends.
