My research interests in entrepreneurship and innovation fall into three main areas:

·        Processual approaches to the emergence of new firms, new business models and new value creation systems. Projects in this area are focused on start-ups in digital media and the creative industries, agri-food, the sci/tech sector, and management practices in incubators. General interest in very early stage concept development and the role of participative, collaborative groups in the experimental phase.

·        Knowledge transfer and knowledge exchange concerning support mechanisms for the above (policies, processes and structures such as incubators), particularly in relation to capacity building and  international development in eg Pakistan, Russia, Portugal, Oman and Northern France.

·        Studies of entrepreneurial identity and its relevance to creative destruction and strategy formulation (with specific relevance to CEO/Leadership)

I am a member of the Higher Education Academy and have a PGCE obtained in 1995.  Since then, I have had 20 years varied experience, undergraduate and postgraduate (MSc and MBA/PX) groups, full-time and part-time, including distance taught programmes in the UK and overseas (Hong Kong, Guernsey, Singapore, Spain, Germany, Oman, Zambia).  I have been involved with the production of text-based support materials, typically study guides and primers, for courses both at undergraduate and postgraduate level, acting as both author and editor, at Lincoln/Humberside University, 1996 – 2000.  Throughout, I have been able to draw on my detailed experience of the use of technology to support teaching (ITTI project, 1993-5), and was a member of the University of Southampton’s  e-learning group till 2014.  I have continued to update my teaching methods and approaches, such as, in 2013, with colleagues, I have pioneered the use of social media within blended online/offline contexts.  I was on the team producing the University of Southampton’s first MOOC.  I continue to give informal staff development talks on these issues.


Subjects available at UG or PG/MBA/PX:

·        Introduction to Entrepreneurship

·        Introduction to Innovation

·        Business Model Innovation

·        Scaling and Growth

·        Digital Media and the Creative Industries

·        New Venture Creation

·        Managing Innovation,

·        Innovation, Technology and the Environment

·        Innovation and Technology Transfer

·        Creativity and Innovation

·        Philosophy of Research/Research Methods



Currently involved in developing a Major, and a cross- campus Minor in Entrepreneurship and Innovation, aligned to energising the Undergraduate Enterprise context.
As Director PG Education at the University of Southampton School of Management, (August 2008-2011, as Deputy Head of School) I was  responsible for education and quality assurance issues concerning MSc and MBA programmes across the School, (18 programmes and around 700 students).  I chaired the PG Education Committee which comprised the Programme Directors of the programmes as well as other School representatives, and also the Exam Boards, where final marks were confirmed. I was able to take on this senior role due to my extensive knowledge of curriculum development in a number of contexts, moving from general management subjects to specialised entrepreneurship and innovation provision:
Initially, the move from Humberside Business School to Lincoln School of Management in the late 90s engendered a great deal of UG and PG development in the management area. I undertook my fair share of unit/module creation, but more significantly, was Course Leader for the Distance Taught PG programmes in Hong Kong and Zambia, working with MDCI (our agents) to set up QA systems and manage the first cohorts through the programmes, troubleshooting and developing QA systems as necessary.
I moved to Loughborough in 2002 to take up a lectureship in the East Midlands Science Enterprise network.  The remit of this post was to develop and extend entrepreneurship UG teaching that was in the School to other faculties; this was successful, as the modules were taken up by other Schools, but careful management was required to effect suitable tailoring for the new Schools without fragmenting the provision and increasing the resource requirement to unrealistic levels.  More significantly, as part of a team that included members of the Tech Transfer Office, we were awarded 25K from the Gatsby Innovation Fund to investigate and transfer best practice in business concept development from NCSU and MIT.  This resulted in the launch of a team-based MBA module that worked with live IP to develop real marketing plans in conjunction with university scientists and business development staff.  The module still runs to this day.
On reaching Southampton, I was part of a team that developed a range of UG and PG teaching (programmes and modules) and was Director of the BSc Management with Entrepreneurship, which is still running and attracts high quality students – the purpose for the course being to engender entrepreneurial knowledge and skill sets that suit behaviour and roles in large firms as well as small (not just to focus on start-up).
More recently, the entrepreneurship subject has moved on from its origins in ‘generic’ business functions (how to manage marketing, finance, strategy, growth, accounting, etc) in small/growing businesses, to a more mature discipline that embraces new discourses that resonate in the public consciousness as well as at policy level – the Creative Industries and Social Entrepreneurship for example.  To address this shift, I led the development of a new MSc in Entrepreneurship and Innovation (PT/PX) at Southampton which was validated in 2012.
In the year of inception, I was part of a team that contributed a module, Living and Working on the Web, to the University’s Curriculum Innovation Programme, an interdisciplinary module  that capitalised on our strengths in Web Science and the Digital Economy.  I also contributed to the first version of the Web Science MOOC.
More bespoke developments re regional development of entrepreneurship/SME education have taken place, being driven by the needs of projects such as INTERREG (EMN Normandie) and INSPIRE (IMSciences Peshawar) which are mixed research/curriculum/outreach projects
