Dr Emma Brown
My academic career was preceded by 17 years working in the service sector, gaining varied management multi-site experience. I have comprehensive managerial experience which includes having direct responsibility for and active involvement in, CBT and IT Systems training and development, security and stock logistics, stock audit, the production of training videos (used company-wide), local frontline staff/management recruitment, plus selection, training, development, discipline, grievance full local control of financial and management accounting, regional/area level management conferences, assessment centre management, health and safety, local co-ordination with the Trading Standards and Chamber of Commerce organisations.
My research and knowledge transfer interests relate mainly to the psychology of managerial behaviour and how this relates to the management of people. My experience is enhanced by my training as a psychometric assessor (BPS level B). Recent interest also includes gaining an enhanced understanding of the social variables affecting Doctoral students’ satisfaction and the completion rates.
