I have a background in education in both the School and Further Education Sector but also in transport management with RHM in London, and management training with the North Yorkshire based Lindley Educational Trust. I joined the Business School in 1992 after completing a Masters Degree at Lancaster University.
I teach across all three years of the UWBS undergraduate provision and also at post graduate level. Currently my major contributions to the former are in the areas of employment relations and in sustainable human resource management. With post graduate students I specialise in employee relations and employment law.
|Corporate and community engagement||I am an active member of the Rotary Club of Great Britain and you might often see me rattling a collection bucket as we try our final push to rid the world of that crippling disease polio. By the end of 2012 Rotary’s target is to raise $200 million to match a challenge grant of $355 million pledged by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. The immunisation programme has by now been successful in all but a handful of countries.|
