I am interested in entrepreneurship and small business start-ups and showing students the benefits of being enterprising.  I have worked closely with the Welsh Government’s Department for Economy, Science and Transport, a role that has allowed me to support student and graduate business start-ups.  I am also interested in major global sports and have introduced a level 6 module Global Sporting Events for the 13/14 academic year.

My current teaching in the School is on the Level 6 and Masters Level Enterprise Project - where the students look into constructing a business plan for a business they are interested in and evaluate the feasibility and potential for the results they obtain.  At Level 5 I lecture on Developing a Business and the enterprise route of the Research Methods 2 modules.  Developing a Business lets the students set-up a small business from the initial conception of the idea and conducting their market research, to writing the business plan, with a view to starting a an enterprise through the Cardiff Met enterprise club, Launchpad.
