Professor Denise Skinner CCMI


Denise Skinner

Currently working as an independent consultant I am a passionate believer in the need for excellent leadership and outstanding management practice in organisations. I see the CMI as playing a key role in this agenda and welcome the opportunity to work with Board of the East Midlands Region to support our members at all stages of their career.

My personal experience has been gained in a range of public and private sector organisations including having been an owner/ Director of a retail SME, a Board member of two private limited companies, a civil servant and holding academic and strategic leadership roles in Universities; most notably having been an Executive Dean contributing to the outstanding success of Coventry University in recent years. My particular expertise lies in the fields of trust, diversity and change management. I have an international academic reputation and I have published refereed journal articles, co-edited books and book chapters on these topics, regularly presented papers at international conferences and been an invited speaker at professional events. 

In addition to being a Companion of the Chartered Institute of Management, I am a Chartered Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Personnel & Development (CIPD), a member of the Institute of Directors (IoD), a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (HEA), and an Emeritus Professor of Coventry University.
