I am a Professor in Business Education in the Organisations and People division in Brunel Business School. In a career spanning nearly 25 years, I have been a business studies academic in the areas of marketing and general managment and leadership and I have held a number of central university positions. Between 2003 and 2019, I worked in academic staff and researcher development, including being the Assistant Director of the Graduate School at King’s College London and heading up the Brunel Educational Excellence Centre at Brunel University London until 2019. Both of these positions plus my national and international work for Vitae (see https://www.vitae.ac.uk) have involved me in strategic leadership and operational management including managing people, projects and resources, which now form my research interests in leadership in higher education. I am a member of the Executive Committee of the UK Council for Graduate Education and am currently serving as the Honorary Secretary. I am also a Principal Fellow of the Higher Education Academy and a Fellow of the Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce (RSA). My research interests are focused on academic leadership in modern universities. In the Business School, I am involved in working closely with colleagues to provide guidance and support for the enhancement of learning, teaching and assessing in business education.
