Research overview

My research interests concentrate on the development, enhacement and growth of individuals and organizations in an entrepreneurial context with a particular focus on leadership, leadership development and learning.  My work has significant theoretical, industrial and policy impact.  Current work takes a critical approach drawing on ideas of gender and power to examine the interrelationships between the micro and macro level influences impacting agents. Related projects include examining the role gender plays in business owners' networking behaviours, how women entrepreneurs understand and enact power, and exploring next generation engagement in family businesses.  I am Editor of International Small Business Journal, a leading entrepreneurship journal.

PhD supervision

I am willing to supervise students in leadership in entrepreneurial contexts. I also am interested in gender, identity and learning.
