Following a 15 year career in Business and Industry, moved into academia to pursue interests in how technology should best be used in organisations, including its impact on staff as well as the organisation itself.
Studied at Durham University before being recruited by BP as a Commercial Graduate Trainee. Worked in various roles in UK Sales & Marketing, and became involved in the testing and administration of BP Chemicals' bespoke ERP system. Commercial roles in other multinationals followed, including Global Marketing Manager for a speciality chemicals company which was rolling out SAP R/3. Involvement in this lead to a change of career into IT, studying a Masters in IT&Management at SHU before taking up a role at SAP in London. A further career change occurred in 2002 on becoming a senior lecturer at SHU, in which role I have sought to bring computing topics to life by relating them to 'real world' experiences, both at Postgraduate and Undergraduate levels.
