A chartered marketer (MCIM) with a soft spot for business creation with impact, I am currently a lecturer in enterprise and entrepreneurship at Coventry University, where I am also the Deputy Course Director for MSc International Entrepreneurship and Academic Communication Lead. Formerly helped, by managing teams of specialists both in agency and in-house, Fortune500 companies across several sectors (e.g., FMCG, financial services, manufacturing, e-commerce, aerospace, engineering, pharma) maximise their strategic comms efforts, I also enjoyed taking part in the creation of a couple of startups. I like to share my experience to help startuppers tackle their marketing challenges. I hold a PhD in Entrepreneurship, two MBAs and a first in comms and am always keen on a good story to tell.

“The desire to get rich and create wealth will clearly not go away, nor should it. These findings do demonstrate that individual wealth creation is by no means the only driver for entrepreneurs. The new generation of entrepreneurs increasingly tend to be aspirational in other ways.”
