Personal profile

Interests

As a Professor of Practice in Management, I am responsible for business engagement activities, and welcome the chance to work with external organisations who are interested in collaborating with Queen's Management School.

Research Interests

My professional background includes both business leadership and academic research and teaching, and my research focuses on various aspects of leadership within family businesses and SMEs.  My PhD considered the differences between family-owned firms in West Germany and England after the Second World War, and the extent to which values and practices visible in that period are still influential today. 

My current research interests are in leadership, particularly in adverse conditions, and the management of small- and medium-sized enterprises, especially family firms. In all of these areas I am interested in both historic and current issues.  I would welcome the chance to work with companies willing to collaborate in the writing of case studies for management teaching.  

Teaching

I teach undergraduate, MBA and executive classes.   My current areas of interest are in Leadership, Resilience, and student-company management consultancy projects.
