After a career in retail and international marketing, I then completed the full-time MBA programme at Nottingham Business School (NBS) in 2012 and subsequently worked as a Research Assistant on two major ESRC funded retail research projects.
I was then involved in the development and launch of the National Retail Research Knowledge Exchange Centre (NRRKEC) which is based at NBS
and where I have been Senior Research Associate since November 2015.
In October 2016 I began a part-time PhD at NBS where my research is focused on academic-practitioner knowledge exchange that has impact in the UK retail sector.
I also tweet regularly about various UK and global retail topics @NelsonBlackley
