Dr Marc Duffy MRes, BA

Lecturer Of Strategic Management, Enterprise And Change

Summary

I am a former practitioner with management experience in heavy industry, aluminium, iron and steel-making.

In industry, I travelled the world as a key account manager for Latin America's metals processing sector. This included frequent prolonged periods working in Mexico, Venezuela and Spain, owing to my second language skills (Spanish). I also traveled to China, Thailand, Indonesia, Brazil, Belgium and Finland.

I returned to Sheffield Hallam University in 2015 to complete a PhD at Sheffield Business School. I am now a lecturer at Sheffield Business School, with a focus on applied research, sustainable and responsible business, and the Level 4 Course Leader for the Business Studies BA (Hons) degree.

My research interests are centred around practical application (and usefulness) of research for business. The PhD was an investigation into the influencers of Organisational Commitment within Sheffield City Region's mid-sized business.

I worked with professional football and rugby clubs, heavy industry and import and export organisations to address this question, and worked with each organisation to implement the results of the study.

The PhD contributed to knowledge by answering the question — why do employees commit to their employers, and why is this important?

I am interested in working with organisations interested in employee commitment, and keen to work with other academics with shared interests.
