Personal profile

Personal Profile

BSc Eng, MBA, PhD
PgCert in Academic Practice, Fellow of HEA

The transition to digital economy has brought new business challenges which - as a business professional - I see as creating opportunities for entrepreneurship and innovation. 

As an academic, I reflect on the latest challenges through learning as Dundee Business School expands the paradigm of today’s business education and persistently advances contemporary management theory. 

My current research revolves around value creation in organisations, with an emphasis on the enterprise renewal. It draws on such themes as employee engagement, authentic leadership, sustainability and corporate entrepreneurship.

Continuous entrepreneurial learning is another aspect of my research and business practice.

I’ve been involved in a wide range of knowledge exchange projects in such areas as digital services, private health care, fast food, leisure and hospitality, and beauty care.

I work with local enterprises as well as companies in China, Malaysia, Nigeria, Ukraine and Kazakhstan to support local business development.  I also act as a mentor to a number of small local businesses and microbusinesses.
