Programme Director of the Oxford Strategic Leadership Programme
Oxford Said Business School
Tracey teaches and directs courses in leadership on open and custom programmes. She plays a leading role in innovation both in learning design and programme content in executive education. She is particularly interested in how smart adults learn, in the effective design of learning spaces and in the blended use of new technologies along with live, experiential, up close traditional methods. Her programmes draw widely on the humanities and on the research from right across the University.
She is the third Programme Director of the Oxford Strategic Leadership Programme which has been running since 1982. She also directs programmes for SABMiller, State Farm Insurance and The Lloyd’s Market Association. She teaches on Women Transforming Leadership and plays an adjunct design role on other programmes. She convenes monthly innovation workshops at the Business School where faculty are encouraged to experiment and try out new approaches with an expert audience.
Before joining the School faculty in 2002, Tracey was managing director of WMC Communications. At WMC, she developed lobbying strategies for financial services companies and helped to design and implement internal communications strategies for large organisations.
Prior to this, she worked in investment banking (Allen & Company) in New York, consultancy (Bain & Co) and as New Business Director in publishing (Marshall Cavendish). She also taught English Literature at St Paul’s Girls’ School.
She is a trustee of the charity Family Links and a director of the public affairs consultancy, Interel EPA.
