After completing my MBA at Strathclyde, I joined the Business School in 1992 intially as a Research Fellow and then as a Lecturer; prior to joining Strathclyde I worked in the UK, Canada and the USA in senior managment positions in MNCs.
I currently live in Abu Dhabi in the UAE, and manage the Business School's postgraduate programmes in the international centres in Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Oman and Bahrain; previous to relocating to the UAE I lived in Shanghai for 4 years and Singapore for 6 years, managing the Strathclyde programmes in S.E. Asia. Alongside my administrative responsibilities I also teach on the MBA programme, predominantly on the 'Strategy' module.
My research focus and interest is in the general area of strategy and scenario planning/thinking, in particular, the scenario development process and the cognitive processes, heuristics and biases which affect our thinking. I am also an experienced practitioner in scenario techniques, having undertaken a diverse range of scenario consultancy assignments in a wide range of countries with an array of public and private sector bodies and non-governmental agencies, including the World Bank and the World Economic Forum.
