Personal profile

Personal profile

I’m an international management lecturer at Abertay with considerable experience of providing advice and consultancy in areas such as strategic planning and employee engagement.  I am the Programme Leader for Business Management and the Chartered Management Institute lead on campus. 

I also lead Abertay’s Innovation for Global Growth project which involves Abertay students and some of Scotland's leading employers - including Heineken, RBS and BT, SFA - working together to find solutions to business problems. As part of this project, Abertay students recently used computer games technology to help design BT's first Customer Experience Lab.  The event has been recognised for its contribution to graduate employability and employment.

My teaching is mainly in the areas of international management, organisational behaviour and critical management studies. I’m a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy and am keen to explore contemporary approaches to teaching and learning.  My approach to teaching is largely influenced by storytelling and innovative methods in assessment.  

My most rewarding achievements to date have been being recognised by my students for my approaches to teaching through the Student Led Abertay Students Association Awards.

I have been involved in numerous media projects examining the recent economic history of Dundee and employment in multi-national companies.  I was part of the production team for the BBC documentary series ‘Power to the People’, and have been involved in a number of radio productions including guesting on a documentary for Radio Scotland hosted by Ricky Ross.

Prior to teaching, I was employed by an American Multi-National Enterprise as a robotics technician.
