Biography

I hold a PhD in Management, specialising in Entrepreneurship in Sub-saharan Africa, from Keele University. Having initially qualified as a Chartered Accountant, I also hold a Master of Science degree in General Management and a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Lagos, Nigeria.

Currently, I am a Lecturer in Business and Director of online MBA. I am also the module leader for Business Strategy and the Entrepreneurship pathway of postgraduate dissertation at Keele Business School, Keele University.

Before joining Keele in 2019, I was a Senior Lecturer and Director of Part-time programmes of the School of Business and Management Studies (Business Administration and Management Department) at Lagos State Polytechnic, now Lagos State University of Science and Technology, Nigeria. I also have substantial consultancy, management and start-up experience. I have had personal business success as the co-founder of McDam Consulting Ltd, as management consultancy services for the business and financial services sector. As a consultant, I have worked with entrepreneurs to provide start-up support, training programmes and targeted recruitment strategies. Most prominently, I served as the Lead Consultant to the formation of Nigeria’s first Islamic Microfinance bank, supporting all corporate and statutory document development, mission statements, compliance frameworks and the recruitment and onboarding of the bank’s Managing Director. I retain the business and industry contacts to support students into enterprise opportunities and have successfully leveraged this insight in the mentoring of students through the development of business ideas into verifiable business models, supporting them through start-up and growth, and the management of the company.

My areas of specialisation and research interest are entrepreneurship, enterprise, small business management and strategic management. Presently, I supervise postgraduate students' dissertations. I am also interested in supervising PhD students in the areas of entrepreneurship, enterprise, small business management and strategic management.
