He has served on local regional, and national UK public sector boards, written more than 1 000 articles and over 70 books and reports, and led more than 20 investigations to identify the critical success factors for key corporate activities and quicker, more affordable and less disruptive routes to high performance organisations.

Of his latest achievement, Coulson-Thomas said: “The university from which one obtains a PhD will always be special, and even more so if it shares one’s engagement with India and one’s commitment to building relationships between India and the UK. I have met Aston alumni in India in senior positions and I look forward to working with the Aston India Foundation for Applied Research to the benefit of both countries.”
