I am the Module Leader on the BSc Accounting and Finance:
Corporate Law AF 2204
Assurance AF 2100
Audit and Assurance AF3100

I am also part of the team delivering the Taxation Modules on the BSc.

My areas of expertise are all aspects of taxation, assurance, corporate governance and corporate law. I have extensive experience of teaching on undergraduate courses, post graduate courses and professional accounting courses throughout the UK. I have been an external examiner at many universities and am currently also a visiting lecturer at the University of Westminster.

Apart from my academic work I have considerable practical experience including working for both small and large Chartered Accountancy firms including running my own practice for a number of years. I was also the Finance Director of a computer company RAIR Limited.

My goal over the years has been to not only impart academic /technical knowledge to my students but to constantly relate study to the ever changing real world. My aim is to give students an edge with potential employers and to set them on successful careers.

By background I am an engineer, by training I am an Army Officer and gradually I am becoming an academic.

I have a degree from the University of Surrey in Civil Engineering and on graduating joined the Royal Engineers. I served for 20 years all over Europe and North America, retiring as a Lieutenant Colonel having commanded a Bomb Disposal regiment.

Whilst in command I took an MA in Management at the Canterbury (now Kent) Business School and on leaving the army set up and ran my own interim management business.

I ran that company for 10 years during which time I was also the Chairman of the Interim Management Association. I closed that company down in order to complete my book on interim management and to finish my D Prof with Middlesex University.

Since 2004 I have been an independent management consultant and interim manager as well as lecturing on international negotiations at the Air Business Academy in Toulouse. In 2010 I was taken on as a Visiting Lecturer at the Business School and now am leader for 3 skills based modules delivered through a team of 8 professional tutors.
