I am a Lecturer in Business and Management at Keele Business School. I deliver on a range of undergraduate and postgraduate modules on our business degrees and MBA and Executive programmes as well as other postgraduate apprenticeship courses within the University.
Prior to joining the Keele, I was a Senior Lecturer in Business Technology in the Department of Operations, Technology, Events and Hospitality Management at the Manchester Metropolitan University Business School where I led an international MSc in Project Management accredited by the Association for Project Management.
I also held the position of Director of Short Courses and Commercial Activities liaising with many SME’s and larger organisations in the UK and internationally including the top 4 consultancy companies worldwide.
Since the early 90’s I have led numerous workshops, courses and programmes to include information systems, project management, business strategy, e-marketing and management, climate change and sustainability, business process re-engineering and so on.
I have a particular interest in emerging technologies in the re-design of business processes, systems theories and methodologies, people and organisations, motivation theory and teams, leadership, managing change, knowledge management and applied learning techniques, including blended learning.
I was a project manager in the pharmaceutical sector for a period of secondment, managing a major migration project across borders and significantly improving the processes within the Department and enhancing the skills and knowledge of the workforce through 70+ training courses.
Between 2006-2008 I was a guest presenter on a live weekly television broadcast reviewing emerging technologies and innovation themes.
I have advised several organisations on their business strategies and adoption of information systems and technology.
I have been a contributing member of the British Computer Society and am an affiliate member of the Chartered Management Institute.
