Space for Learning Ltd, Director

Dr Sharon Varney specialises in developing more dynamically-capable organisations. She works at a strategic level, helping to create more effective organisations, and engages at a very human level, supporting people to manage change and transition. Sharon developed her cross-sector expertise working in large, global organisations. She was Group Head of Learning and Communications for a global engineering and construction company in offshore oil and gas. Previously she was Vice President for International Learning & Development at a US bank. Alongside her consulting work, Sharon is a speaker, author and educator. She currently leads The Henley Forum at Henley Business School – a centre that is dedicated to advancing practice in knowledge, learning and change.

The Henley Forum has almost 20 years’ experience helping organisations to advance their practice in developing dynamic organisations through knowledge, learning and change. Over that period, we have built a rich body of evidence-based practical knowledge and tools that address real-world challenges. Within our membership-based community, we offer a space where practitioners, academics and thought leaders combine experience and ideas to help our members develop new, actionable insights. Henley Forum members come from a wide variety of disciplines in private, public and third-sector organisations. Some are world-class practitioners, others are just discovering the benefits and challenges of developing dynamic organisations through knowledge, learning and change work. Our diversity creates new connections and fosters cross-sector learning to add value and impact. The Henley Forum is an applied research centre at the triple-accredited Henley Business School, part of the University of Reading.
