This is a job-share with Duleep Deosthale.

Greetings from Edinburgh! My name is Chris Yeomans and I am Deputy Director of the University of Edinburgh’s International Office. Over the past 17 years, I’ve developed a strong understanding of leadership and management in higher education, working in a diverse range of roles. I’ve been a university lecturer, worked in Brussels with the European Parliament’s Education Committee, represented all UK universities as Head of Policy at Universities UK, and for the last eight years have worked in leadership roles within universities, developing innovative internationalisation strategies and managing international teams of higher education professionals. 

I believe that my diverse experience of higher education management allows me to contribute fresh thinking to the Strategy and Management Expert Community. I have a specialism in intrapreneurialism and institutional change in universities, and I am well placed to ensure that new and emerging areas of university leadership and management are on the EAIE agenda. 

In my first term on the Strategy and Management Steering group, I feel that I have learned a great deal about how best to contribute and to represent colleagues on the committee. I would be honoured to serve a second term. This is a job-share with Duleep Deosthale.
