Nick von Behr - Research and Analysis

About me


I'm experienced.

This means I've actually been there and done it.

Education and training can give you so much, but what matters is applying your skills in a range of contrasting situations. You need to learn from trying things out in the field, whatever the outcome.

You'll get on with me. I meet deadlines and communicate regularly with project sponsors/managers to be sure we're all headed in the right direction.

I've worked with international organisations based in London that expect a high standard of output.

Until early 2019 I was employed at the Institution of Structural Engineers as Education Manager.

Previously I worked for 14 years with the UK's Academy of Sciences, the Royal Society, home to Stephen Hawking and Tim Berners-Lee, plus many Nobel Prize winners.

I also spent a year at BSI's global HQ in the Standards Policy team.

Current Interests

I have just written  a book on the Victorian Brunel and Barry families of architects and civil engineers.  I have started planning and writing  my next book which will be historical fiction.

I have undertaken social scienceresearch to Masters level and on a freelance basis for clients, which has extended to education policy work as an employee and consultant.

My family is international including fluent speakers of the following languages: English; German; Russian; Ukrainian and Tagalog (in the Philippines).
