Research interests

His current research and consulting interests include exploring how entrepreneurs and managers overcome leadership, cultural, institutional, and commercial dilemmas as they seek to grow their new ventures or transform their existing organisations. He has won awards for his publications on the interface between technology, military policy and commercial strategy and technology, interest areas that he picked up while attending the Australian Army Command and Staff College.

He has supervised 2 PhD/ 1 honours students to completion in the areas of venture capital decision-making and the role of adaptive change and dynamic capabilities in high performing firms.  He is currently supervising 5 PhD/ 1 honours students who are conducting research into returnee professionals, corporate environmental reporting, board decision making, business education, working across cultures and organisational change (see further information section attachment).

In the lead up to the full publication of the report, through advice by the CPA, their report was also accepted by the Commonwealth Government's Senate Economics Committee's Inquiry into Access of Small Business to Finance in 2010 with a follow-on submission to the Joint Parliamentary inquiry into family businesses in Australia in 2012.  The original full report is available on the CPA Australia website.
