Faculty of Business and Law

Dr Natalie Marguet is a Senior Lecturer at the School of Leadership and Organisational Development, where she is responsible for developing and delivering modules on the MBA, CMDA and bespoke leadership courses across the north-west. Additionally, I proudly serve as the Lead Action Learning Facilitator for the Circle Leaders' Programme—a national leadership development initiative for Circle Health Group's senior leaders (formerly BMI Healthcare), solidifying my commitment to impactful leadership development

Her teaching relates to project management, strategic consultancy research, research strategies for practitioners, and scholarly business practice. Before joining academia in 2010, Natalie worked for ten years across several sectors, including transport, construction and financial services, and held several managerial positions.

At the start of 2024, she celebrated collaborative success with FCE Projects Ltd. and Liverpool Business School, achieving an "Outstanding" grade in their transformative 2-year partnership. The partnership was extended with the design and delivery of a new Future Leaders Group Development Programme, driven by the transformative power of Action Learning and coaching

In 2017, she received external funding from the Association for Project Management titled ‘Capturing and evaluating individual and social factors that influence critical project decisions’. This research strives to understand how real-time project decisions can be captured, mapped and measured to gain insights into the ways that decisions are made in a project context.

Her PhD delved into the nuanced dynamics of organisational decisions within executive boards, not only contributing to academic knowledge but also translating insights into impactful executive education initiatives - recognised in 2021 through a Fellowship from Systems and Complexity in Organisations (SCIO).

Natalie welcomes connections from those with overlapping interests, both from industry and academia. If you would like to speak to Natalie then please contact her via email
