I am a former Manager with Midland Bank plc and as a full-time Senior Lecturer in Banking and Economics at Loughborough University and EOCCS Director for EFMD. I have accumulated 40 years of experience in Business and Banking education, Higher Education management and teaching innovation. I am passionate about sharing my experience with peers and frequently present at learning and teaching conferences and seminars.
In 2017 I stepped down as inaugural Associate Dean Teaching (2010-2017) at the School of Business and Economics at Loughborough University and now focus on on-line education as EOCCS Director, for EFMD Global Network.
I am a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Bankers (now LIBF) and a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy. I have been working with LIBF as a member of its Academic Board and the Chartered Association of Business Schools. I am honoured to be one of the inaugural CMBEs.
Research interests include personal and corporate insolvency - read my INSOLVENCY BLOG - as well as SME lending by banks and student engagement with group work and technology in learning. In 2007 I was awarded a PhD based on personal insolvency research.
I have an intensely practical approach to his teaching and research work and have wide experience in teaching undergraduate, post-experience and postgraduate students both in the UK and abroad, including Liechtenstein, Ukraine, Finland and Singapore.
