Before I joined Norwich Business School in October 2012 I worked at BPP Professional Education for five years as a Subject Specialist. My role meant that as well as teaching on professional qualifications courses I led specific papers, providing training and guidance to other tutors, preparing course materials and online lectures and generally trying to support my colleagues' teaching. I carried out this role for ICAEW Advanced Level Corporate Reporting and Audit & Assurance, and for the ACCA paper P1 Governance, Risk and Ethics. I was also involved in developing scholarship at BPP and organised the production of some of BPP's first Working Papers.
I qualified as a Chartered Accountant in 1992 while working for Spicer and Oppenheim (subsequently part of Deloitte). I worked as a manager in accountancy firms in the Thames Valley and qualified as a Chartered Tax Adviser. I have been involved in education since 1996.
I am currently teaching Financial Accounting, Advanced Financial Accounting and Personal & Corporate Taxation.
