Current Management and Academic Leadership Role

From January 2013 to date: Head of Research, Staffordshire University Business School. Main responsibilities to date: membership of the University REF Advisory Group; leading, managing and writing the REF2014 submission in Business and Management Studies.
From 2008 to date: Founder and currently Director of the Centre for Applied Business Research (CABR) within Staffordshire University Business School.
CABR was established to raise the level of activity and profile of Business School research and enterprise activities. To this end, over the period 2009 to 2013 we secured £640,000 of additional research and enterprise funding for the Business School (according to our REF5 submission), appointed two Enterprise Readers, put in place administrative infrastructure, and enlarged our capacity by both providing more research opportunities and by mentoring more colleagues into becoming active researchers. The ethos of CABR is to realize synergies between an enterprise agenda of business engagement and a research agenda preparing for assessment under the REF2014 and beyond.

My continuing contributions to CABR include academic leadership and management, personal research, research supervision and mentoring (including joint publication), bid writing (with successes including a HEIF project and an FP7 project – see below) and working on external projects.
