Projects per year
I am an experienced lecturer, facilitator, and researcher with over 15 years experience in research, strategy development, and organisation development. My current work involves supporting students, communites and businesses to imagine alternative socio-economic and socio-cultural futures. I specialise in arts-based inquiry, responsible leadership, and impact and engagement.
I take an interdisciplinary approach to both my research and teaching, drawing on artistic techniques and practices to explore, challenge and interrogate notions of responsible leadership, community engagement, and social innovation.
I have designed, developed, delivered and facilitated a broad range of organizational development initiatives at all career levels, delivered international CPD programmes (British Council, Erasmus+, Irish Research Council), as well as training for universities across the UK (King’s College London, University of Northampton, Liverpool University, Brunel University, Association of Research Managers and Administrators). I take an interdisciplinary approach to my practice and use a range of creative techniques to encourage learners to explore notions of responsible and shared leadership, continuing professional development (CPD), and equality, diversity and inclusion.
Summary of Research Interests
My research explores how the arts and humanities approaches can inform and challenge current approaches to leadership, continuing professional development (CPD), and communication and engagement. I am currently working on three interrelated projects:
- Arts for Business: this projects looks at how artistic research and practice can contribute to business performance and productivity, with a focus on how creative thinking and practice can foster meaningful engagement with issues such as stakeholder and community engagement and social and environmental impact.
- Executive Cabaret: this project looks at how the medium of cabaret can provide an alternative format for executive education that increased both engagement and learning while unsettling traditional notions of CPD, learning and development, and executive education.
- Town Centre Theatrics: this project considers the contribution businesses and business leaders make to how a town centre is experienced by residents and visitors. Rooted in theories of shared leadership, community engagement, experiencescapes, and performance and theatre, the project looks at a systems approach to regenerating town centres, with an initial focus on the British Seaside Town.
