Enterprise Lecturer - CREATE

Inverness College UHI
Research Hub
1 Inverness Campus

I am an Enterprise Lecturer based in the Centre for Enterprise and Innovation at Inverness College, UHI with 20 years’ experience across a number of disciplines. In terms of curriculum delivery I am currently the Programme Leader on the Postgraduate diploma in Global Entrepreneurship. I also provide opportunities for students to develop ‘enterprise and entrepreneurial thinking’, working with Primary and Secondary school teachers as well as Forestry students at the Scottish School of Forestry (SSF)

Non-curricular activity I am involved in includes the annual UHI Business Competition, as well as Scotland’s Enterprise and Entrepreneurship Educators Programme (SEE), the only professional staff development programme which equips participants to become informed, flexible and professional enterprise educators.

I am part of a team that delivers enterprise training to Research staff and students to encourage researchers to think about the skills required beyond academia and the changing research context. An introductory workshop leads to further training in developing entrepreneurial thinking and impact.
