About the author
Kate Russell studied business law, qualified as a barrister and then moved into industry, where she gained experience as an operations manager and as a supplier of corporate HR and training in the manufacturing, distribution and services sectors.
Describing herself as an operations person who delivers HR, rather than an HR person, Kate started Russell HR Consulting in 1998 and now divides her time between advising small and medium sized businesses on HR issues and delivering a range of highly practical employment law awareness training to line managers, including a range of public workshops. Her unusual combination of legal background, direct line management experience and HR skills, enable Kate to present the stringent requirements of the law balanced against the realities of working life. She is a senior presenter for companies such as IDS and Lexis Nexis, a popular public speaker and the author of a number of books.
