Biography

My first involvement with projects was in the early 1970's with a local authority where I designed and implemented a police crime and criminal project. This was followed by 19 years in the MoD working on many projects, during which time I also was awarded an MPhil at Cranfield for the design and project management of a Tri-service world wide road traffic accident analysis project. The next move was to become a Senior Lecturer in the field of project management and professional development. I currently also hold the post of Adjunct Professor at SKEMA Business School in Lille. Lancaster University, Leeds University and the Open University have invited me to be their External Examiner for their project management courses. Consultancy work has been possible, such as three years involvement in the project management in the Euro Fighter and Air Bus with EADS. In 2002 I was awarded a Teaching Fellow award for my work at Bournemouth University and completed my PhD in project management in 2004. Since then I have run four International conferences on the subject of Excellence in Teaching and Learning for Project management...
