Today, Bernard also enjoys teaching for the Irish Management Institute, Oxford University, BPP, and ICAEW. On top of that, Bernard also serves as non-executive director on the board of businesses and has a seat on the dean’s council for Lancaster University Management School.

Away from his professional life, Bernard’s priority is being a good husband to his wife Claire and father to his three children Sophia, James, and Oliver. Together with them and their dog Millie, he lives in Milton Keynes, just north of London, England.
