I am Director of Studies for the Online MBA (Master of Business Administration) at the University of Liverpool. I joined the University in 2016 and, prior to this, I was a Senior Lecturer in Strategic Management for over 10 years in a UK university. I have also worked in strategy and management roles for Abbey National (now Santander), BT and Marks & Spencer.
I received a PhD from the University of Bath and my main research interest is as part of the ‘Strategy as Practice’ research field, in particular the study of strategic change from a sensemaking and identity perspective. I completed an MBA with Cranfield University in 2000. I also hold an MA in Learning and Teaching for Higher Education and I am a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy. This reflects my wider interest in learning and teaching innovation and excellence.
