Coming from a British teaching background, I have been working at Grenoble Ecole de Management since 1998 primarily as a teacher of English. This initial role has since developed into one of administering the English programs at the school for French students, this involves recruiting teachers, program development, scheduling, coordinating the standardized (Toeic, Ielts) tests within the school. Another part of my responsibilities include working at the centre for international Affairs where I am the Academic Advisor for Australia, New Zealand, Scandinavia and Canada. This task involves advising and guiding both inbound and outbound students in their course choices, visiting partners attending international higher education conferences as well as working on ways to further existing partnerships ( double degrees, faculty exchange , consortiums etc). A further activity involving pedagogy is working with the Heads of the DFR to produce a specialization catalogue of modules that covers all student demands (periods, frequency etc). I am an  internationally experienced  and well-travelled professor with a strong track record of providing bespoke training courses  for students ranging from undergraduate to executive education.
