Dr Nia D Thomas JP
LLB (Hons), MSc, DBA
I was born and bread on the West Wales coast. I moved to Cardiff to study my undergraduate degree in Law and Japanese, which gave me the chance to live in Japan in my third year. At the end of my degree I got a summer job at an NHS Trust as an administrator to the exec team at their head quarters. I really enjoyed it and decided to stay. I was promoted, taking on other roles in other Trust and then working nationally.
I had an opportunity to transfer to local government and work on the Welsh Government’s flagship early years pre-school development and parenting support programme, Flying Start, which I loved. During that time, I joined the magistracy, completed my masters and started my doctorate.
I worked in early years for ten years then had the opportunity to move to London. I went back to the NHS, taking on a corporate role, working in strategy, planning and latterly, culture change at Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children. I recently also took on the role of Trustee at Coram Voice.
This website was borne out of a need to keep the little grey cells active during the COVID lockdowns of 2020 and 2021, and also the desire to share my research finding and experience with others.
I completed my doctorate, focused on self-awareness, leader effectiveness and leadership at all levels, in the Spring of 2021.
