Dr. Andrew MacLaren

 

Dr. Andrew MacLaren is a multi-award-winning university lecturer, based at the CREWS research centre, School of Social Sciences at Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh. His research is principally concerned with the sociolinguistics of teamwork: how teams communicate. He has published internationally, authoring textbooks, book chapters and peer-reviewed articles in a variety of areas relating to cultural and small group dynamics: from the British Army in Afghanistan, to professional kitchen teams, and even The Only Way is Essex! His current work is focused on astronaut communication in deep space exploration, and the communication processes of healthcare teams in trauma scenarios. Before entering academia, Andrew spent 10 years working as a tennis coach. He still sees his spiritual home as on a Tennis court. Andrew works with Fieri as an Academic Consultant, providing us with his latest academic research within the Leadership and Development field. Andrew also supports us through our thought leadership, writing blogs and providing exclusive learning content for our Fieri Alumni.
