dr-neil-thompsonDr Neil Thompson is a well-published and highly respected author; a very experienced and successful training facilitator; and a sought-after consultant and international conference speaker. He also tutors the Avenue Professional Development Programme, a subscription-based online learning community – see below for further details.

The focus of Neil’s work is twofold:

  1. Helping organisations to get their ‘people issues’ right so that they maximise their effectiveness by taking seriously the well-being needs of their staff and managers;
  2. Empowering individuals and groups to fulfil their potential through optimal learning and development, problem solving and communication.

Following a successful career in social work in which he established himself as a leading thinker in the field, Neil continues to play a major role in shaping social work theory and practice while also making a significant contribution to our understanding of human relations issues in the workplace, such as: equality and diversity • stress • conflict management • loss, grief and trauma • and related matters.

He has a wealth of experience in helping people deal with their problems and challenges across the ‘people professions’ – that is, members of the helping professions plus people involved in management, leadership and human resources.

He is the managing director of Avenue Consulting Ltd and its publishing wing, Avenue Media Solutions.
