Natalie Wilmot

Senior Lecturer


I am a senior lecturer in the International Business subject group.

Prior to joining the university, my professional background was in export sales and global supply chain management, during which time I worked extensively with organisations in Spain and South America.

My doctoral research examined the impact of language diversity in international supply chain management, and my current research interests are concerned with various aspects of language diversity and translation work in the context of international business.

I teach on a range of undergraduate and postgraduate modules, dealing primarily with topics related to Cross-Cultural Management and Global Supply Chain Management, and I am the Course Leader for the Executive MBA.

In addition to being a Member of the Institute of Export and International Trade, and a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy, I also hold the position of Treasurer for GEM&L (Groupe d'Etudes Management et Langage), an international, interdisciplinary scholarly body which brings together academics interested in language issues in management. In 2018 I was also appointed as Visiting Professor at the University of Bordeaux.
