    "How can we support doctors when they make mistakes?", "What do board chairs think about the gender diversity?", "How do senior execs leverage their relationships?", "Why do people cycle to work?" and "How do we develop leadership with interpersonal mindfulness?". These are the questions addressed in this symposium by practitioners completing the new Professional Doctorate in Occupational and Business Psychology programme at Kingston University. Designed to bridge the scientist-practitioner chasm by enabling established practitioners to enhance their research skills, the programme has led to fascinating questions being explored using robust scientific approaches. This symposium includes five presentations each applying sound theory and research methodologies to answer real world concerns. It explores some of the challenges facing practitioners wanting to engage in research and the ways in which these can be overcome. This session will end with a Q&A where the group will answer questions about their research and share their experience of sitting across the academic-practitioner divide.
