Dr. Jeanette Garwood (D.Phil.) now works as a freelance behavioural scientist, and psychology advisor. Having been a psychology researcher, and an academic, since 1986, she moved from university lecturing, to applying psychology in the workplace, via an Organizational Psychology MSc. in 2016. She now accepts commissions across a variety of domains.
She began her professional working life as a research assistant and part-time doctoral student at Oxford University’s Experimental Psychology department, although she had experience in telesales before and across her undergraduate years, and saw the role change through computerization, as a temporary worker. After completing her doctoral research in audiovisual speech perception and understanding, she researched at Manchester Victoria University; taught at Manchester Polytechnic, and worked at the Health and Safety Executive’s Health and Safety Laboratories in Sheffield. Returning to academia in 1994, where she worked at the Universities of Huddersfield, and finally at Leeds Metropolitan/Beckett. She has taught short courses for professionals, and taught and trained police officers to be more public focused.
She left the sector because it was, in her view, no longer serving its clients, or its stakeholders the value that they all deserve.
She has degrees from UCL, Edinburgh, Oxford (Green-Templeton), Leicester, and Leeds University Business School.
