Learn more about Stuart Schofield, Client Director in Mannaz.



A chartered occupational psychologist with a passion for designing and facilitating great learning experiences. I live in London with my wife, two young daughters and an ever-growing collection of ‘Frozen’ merchandize!


What do you do in Mannaz?

I am a client director working out of the London office.


What motivates you?

I am most energized when I am watching my participants sparking off each other and creating new ideas and connections for themselves. The recognition that no matter how intricately a workshop has been put together, truly engaged participants will make this learning experience their own.


What is your greatest accomplishment?

Moving to Hong Kong was a fantastic experience. In China and in many parts of SE Asia there is new generation of highly motivated emerging leaders. After 4 years delivering scores of leadership development programmes, I felt I had learnt more from my participants about leadership in an international context than they had from me.


What mistake have you learned the most from?

Context is everything! Having wonderful, insightful and scientifically robust model is great but if the model doesn’t help the person make sense of their work, no problem, delete it! No matter how much I love a particular model, diagram or an idea, if it does not help my participant on THEIR journey, I simply remind myself of what my Frozen-obsessed daughters would say… ‘Let It Go!’
