Lou Walker MSc
Lou has 16 years' experience as a management trainer and leadership development consultant. In 2015 a longstanding interest in how nutrition and physical activity affect health and performance prompted Lou to study for an MSc in Obesity & Weight Management at the University of Chester.
Returning to consultancy in Autumn 2017, she will focus on speaking on the findings from her MSc research project - the first academic exploration of office cake culture. The results have implications for health in general and workplace health in particular. In addition she will continue her research at the University of Chester into the effects of snacking on health in the workplace.
Lou has worked as an associate for consultancies on behavioural diagnostics and personal development for clients in a variety of sectors including finance, pharma, construction, food and drink, and travel. Areas of particular experience include development and assessment centres, competency frameworks, coaching and management training. She is an accredited practitioner of the Harry Schroeder High Performance Behaviour framework.
Lou has always had a keen interest in functional health – the promotion of health and happiness through a combination of optimum nutrition, exercise, sleep, stress management and gut health. She is currently studying for a Postgraduate Certificate in Human Nutrition, at the University of Chester.
