Steve Chadwick

Director of Strategy, Planning & Change, University of Bristol

Steve Chadwick has a wealth of experience as a strategic planning professional, spending over 28 in the planning function of the universities of Northumbria, Newcastle, Durham and Exeter before taking up post at Bristol as Director of Strategy, Planning & Change in August 2016. Steve has been a Director of Planning functions for over 18 years, and among other things has had responsibility for: strategy development and implementation; strategic programmes and projects; resource allocation; risk management; business intelligence; performance monitoring; incident and crisis management; business continuity and horizon scanning.

At the heart of his approach to integrated planning has been the desire to establish a continuous ‘strategic conversation’ between senior managers, academics, professional services staff and students. He has sought to ensure this conversation is well-informed and evidence-based so it leads to high quality decision-making which enhances institutional performance.

Steve has played a prominent role in the HE strategic planning community nationally for many years, chairing working groups for HESA, training senior managers and serving on the HESPA Executive and Development Committee. He has also worked as an independent consultant and trainer in the UK and Middle East.
