William Tate, MA, FRSA, FCIPD, MCMI

Consultant, writer, researcher and teacher in the field of leadership, strategic human resource management and organisation development, change and learning. 'Bill' founded Prometheus Consulting in 1991 following a long career with British Airways.

Bill was British Airways' first Head of General Training. He played a major role in the airline's mid-1980s privatisation culture-change initiative. Up to his leaving he was BA's Head of HR Strategy & Planning. He advised on the human resources implications of the company's merger with British Caledonian. His review of BA's human resources department led to a new role and structure. He introduced flexible working initiatives to combat demographic trends. And he overhauled the airline's bureaucratic systems for providing employment information.

He is Visting Fellow in Leadership at Cass Business School. He was a visiting member of faculty on City University Business School's part-time MBA Programme, where he taught human resource management and corporate responsibility. He is also a member of the Centre for Tomorrow's Company. A prolific author, he has written many books and articles.
