I am an experienced academic with 13yrs in the UK HE sector and 20yrs in the hospitality, leisure, travel and tourism sectors around the world. I place a high value on applied learning and situational knowledge and specialise in creating fun, engaging and practical learning experiences to help participants gain the knowledge and insight to be able to apply their academic understanding in a real world environment.
I lead on the Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs programme at the University of Gloucestershire and I am studying for a PhD in Entrepreneurship Policy at the University of South Wales.
