“I’m Kathy Daniels, and I’ve been an ICS Learn tutor for 20 years. I also teach at Aston University at both postgraduate and undergraduate level, and I’m a Lay Member of the Employment Tribunal.

I first became Head of HR at a large manufacturing organisation, then started my own consultancy practice specialising in employment law and employee relations.

I write a large range of learning material for ICS Learn, CIPD and a range of universities, and I’ve authored seven books.

I enjoy communicating my passion to my students. I'll never tire of being nosy about people!”
