Born in Surrey, but formative years spent in Northumberland, with a family from East Anglia, I am definitely English. After a degree in Marketing (Engineering) I spent 20 years in industrial marketing with various concerns, principally in the energy sector. Following some work with the DTI (now BERR) and various consultancy activity, I ‘fell’ into the academic world.
Since then I have been involved in a variety of courses across the institution, including course leadership, external validation for other institutions, member of various University committees, including Teaching and Learning, Planning and Resources, Senate, etc.
