RALPH TAIT THA, THB 86-93
After maxing out on Art at CH, I left school and studied Fine Art at Goldsmiths. On leaving university, and spending a few years temping and not finding a job as ‘artist’, I took a role at the Financial Times, working on the artwork that went into the paper. I then moved into running projects, which turned into programme management, and then on to managing the integration of companies acquired by the FT’s parent company, Pearson. Since then I’ve been working in Organisation Design and Change Management, and recently left Pearson to start my own company, building software to help organisations manage change more effectively.
Beyond work, I live in Leigh on Sea in Essex, and I’m married to a wonderful Swede. Together we have 4 children, with 7 years between them, which keeps me much busier than starting a company.
I’m also a governor at my children’s school and have no personal hobbies (see previous note about the 4 children).
