About me

I am Senior Lecturer in Organisation Studies in Bristol Business School.  I work within the organisation studies department focusing on Change Management, including undergraduate, masters, and short courses for professionals. I am also a team coach within the Team Entrepreneur Award in which TEs learn by doing and running projects and ventures as well as working as a Team Company. My career history is both academic and non-academic.  Within universities I have been a lecturer and Award Programme leader.  I have worked in: the Voluntary third sector, for example, Black Asian & Minority Ethnic experiences and employers actions with the Justice Sector specifically with the police and probation services, and employment; Young families early intervention and commissioning / bids, and  interpreter services to support work with families; Local Government specifically self-managed and group approaches to Management Development, as well as equalities;  the Private Sector including Consultancy, Management of Change specialist, and HR mainly for large employers.
Within UWE I am involved in the development of a range of new undergrad and postgrad modules covering organisational studies, management of change, as well as complexity leadership and change.  A key priority in 2013-15 is to remain research active and publish from the range of my research experiences including my PhD.

Area of expertise

My current focus is coaching, change and organisation development. My Doctorate focused on collaboration and community participation with the change to citizen-led service delivery / partnerships introduced by New Labour.  Specifically it looked at discourse and embodied identities in public meetings called ‘Partners and Communities Together’ and partnerships introduced as part of local neighbourhood policing to address locality crime and disorder and quality of life issues.  As well as critical discourse analyses favouring a longitudinal ethnography  I have also used more traditional qualitative approaches within my other research into organisational change and the management of change.  My teaching has been focused on change, management, and the range of organisational behaviour topics, and some HR topics with undergrads and Masters Student
I have two 3* publications that draw on these experiences and topics – and are collaborative with colleagues from Cardiff and/or Keele University. I am working on other papers that focus on organisational change
