Development Manager MBA (Leadership), CQUniversity Australia

Leading the online education revolution, I provide teaching, mentoring, editing, management consulting and new-product development for retail, service, media and online education businesses.

My work focuses on future media business development and production, especially online undergraduate and postgraduate business education, and media for future space communities.

I have worked as a higher-education Dean, an Associate Professor at two major Australian universities, a lecturer, tutor, PhD and Masters supervisor and examiner at seven other universities and colleges and as a trainer and mentor for TAFE Queensland and the Greater Brisbane Small Business Advisory Service.

I bring PhD and MBA-qualified, high-level experience in international university teaching, innovation and research and in face-to-face and online curriculum to develop and deliver award-winning education and communication products and systems to maximise new market opportunities.

In the world of journalism, I specialise in digital storytelling; in academic publishing, we specialise in content editing for academics and PhD and Masters candidates.
