Dr. Doug Henderson, Director


Doug Henderson B.Sc, Ph.D

Doug Henderson is the Director of DHA Management Development, a management personnel development business he started in the spring of 1991.

Doug has been involved in facilitating development for over 20 years. He has a particular interest in the use of an outdoor environment and the ways in which it can be used to both enhance and embed developmental messages. He has found this to be of particular benefit for teamwork development programmes where the outdoor arena provides a uncluttered backdrop against which to observe the teams performance. Doug has also found outdoor tasks and activities relevant to programmes which have a more personal focus.

Over the years Doug has built up a breadth of experience in the world of personnel  development through his involvement with several different organisations. During the last 10 years he has been involved in the design and delivery of specific experiential learning packages aimed at improving a range of managerial competencies. This has lead him to work with all levels of management from managing director to 1st line supervisory.
