John Gentle


John established his consultancy business, Joineduplearning, in 2002 after 24 years in the aerospace industry. He specialises in providing project management training, education and associated consultancy. John’s philosophy, reflected in his courses and events, is that learning about project management is as much about education as it is about training and that the skills of “how?” should be accompanied by an understanding of “why?”.

John’s clients include aerospace companies together with academic and professional bodies, for whom he delivers events throughout the UK, in Europe and as far afield as China and the USA.

The bulk of John’s early career was in line project management, becoming the development programme manager for a major civil engine project before spending several years in quality and business improvement roles. He was then appointed the corporate training manager for business improvement and in this role John developed and ran courses in project management which are still being delivered today and which, at the last count, had been attended by over 8,000 corporate delegates.

John is a Member of the Association for Project Management. His qualifications include an Honours Degree in Physics from Hull University, a Masters Degree in Combustion and Explosion from Leeds University and a Postgraduate Diploma in Business Process Improvement and Quality Management from Nottingham Trent University.
