My Profile

Professional Background

I specialize in the design of distributed-leadership learning programs for executive teams in entrepreneurial and large firms. In particular our designs focus on developing executives' decision-making capacities in uncertain, complex and ambiguous environments.

I am Director of Training Games, Spain

I'm a Visiting Lecturer for the MBA and Entrepreneurship Programs at the European Business School, London, ESEC-Toulouse University, Barcelona and at the Barcelona Management Institute. I was Founding member of the Barcelona Entrepreneurship City Group.

Between 2004-08 I was the learning facilitator on the Park Royal Partnership 'Entrepreneurial Mentoring Program' for Small & Medium Size enterprises. I am lead adviser to the GBP15m London Carnival Village capital Project and Director of the related Yaa Asantewaa Arts & Community Centre, London.

I hold a number of directorships, advise, consult and publish in the area of Strategic and Entrepreneurial Learning.

Recent publications include :
C.W.J.A., Gonsalves, E. (2008). Entrepreneurial Resource, Organizational Learning and Strategy-Making: Linking Theory and Empirical Design in R. T. Harrison, & C. M. Leitch (Eds.), Entrepreneurial Learning: Conceptual Frameworks and Applications. London: Routledge.

Personal Background

My Interests

I am especially interested in how the works of Augusto Boal in producing theater can be used to break down and reconstruct the teacher-student relationship in Business School University Education and also how his approach might benefit re-conceiving the relationship between trainer-trainee in Corporate Training programs. Boal's work in theater was developed alongside that of his compatriot and friend Paulo Freire who's work I increasingly wish to build into my developing contribution and learning as a University teacher and Corporate Trainer.

(Comment.gif: You're doing great, Ed. I suggest you keep practicing the tutorials in your sandbox page and add to the headings on your userpage. --Nellie Deutsch 15:32, 17 December 2009 (UTC))
(Comment.gif: Thanks Nellie. I'm very slow so stay with me;). Doing lots in the sandbox but more anxious in userpage- still I've got a photo and some bits up and aligned!!--Ed Gonsalves 16:03, 17 December 2009 (UTC))

Very nice to meet you in the class. WikiEducator is a very warm and comfortable community. () . If there is any way I can help you, please let me know (coloured backgrounds, margins, user groups in multiple languages). Come visit my user page. Also, just to remind you, I put up a new page on which you can practice collaborating, by using your editorial skills included in this tutorial. See: Alternative Teaching methods and add your comments, criticisms, more methods, or reflections. Just try it. Cheers, Phil. --Phil Bartle 11:01, 15 December 2009 (UTC) (UTC)

*Hey, thanks Phil...I suspect that we have a few things in common when it comes to evolving teacher practice...although it will take me another 40 years to get to anywhere near your level of generating and sharing know-how. Thank you for all.

I would think you have many alternative methods of teaching in your field.--Phil Bartle 12:31, 16 December 2009 (UTC)
