BiographyThirty years of professional teaching and research experience in the fields of accounting, finance and ethics have helped me to become an influential voice in global debates on business education and ethical finance. I have spoken at international conferences all over the world, and to a diverse range of audiences from students to professionals, business leaders and academics. Broadcast credits include BBC World Service, BBC Radio 2, Radio 4 and many local BBC radio stations. I have also appeared on Channel 4 and been profiled in Forbes, the Guardian and Economia.
Areas of Research / Professional Expertise
Actively involved in researching and writing on a range of ethical finance topics - Big 4 global accounting firms and their regulatory arbitrage culture; banking regulation and its systemic problems; Jainism and Ethical Finance; The failure of HBOS - Britain's largest corporate collapse; Creative accounting and professional collusion in regulatory arbitrage.
I love teaching and helping students and business leaders to grow. Ensuring that research influences public policy is a personal passion, and I have obtained international impact from my research projects on Ethical Finance, which include the books I have written for Routledge.
