I am the Dean of Sydney Business School at the University of Wollongong. My areas of expertise are coaching and mentoring, leadership, innovation, education, authentic assessment, and helping students develop research skills. I have many years of experience working in industry as well as in academia, and see the value of bringing a practical bent to academic pursuits and academic rigour to practical issues.
My book 'Coaching and Mentoring for Business' was published by Sage in 2014.
