What Kevin says

Kevin Ruck
Kevin Ruck

“I get a buzz from teaching as I like to explore new ideas and ways of working. I like to think big about PR, internal communication and employee engagement. I think you tend to always get what you’ve always got if you always do what you’ve always done. So teaching and learning is about thinking differently in ways that can be applied to better practice. I also put a lot of emphasis on research, insights, measurement and evaluation. That’s why  I did a PhD. It enabled me to understand how to do robust research that makes a difference to practice.”
