MA Business Research (Durham University) and MA Marketing (Brunel University)

Experienced commercial director turned lecturer. I work part-time at the university combining teaching with management in practice via the familys property business and my armchair investing. I volunteer at Oxfam putting books on line where Ive recently started setting up a supply chain of second hand academic textbooks to help reduce the cost to students. 

I am curently studying for a doctorate in education. My current research is focussed on the inequality between teaching only and reserach focussed academics in UK universities.
