Programme Director, MA Social Entrepreneurship at Goldsmiths, University of London
After nearly 20 years researching and teaching in UK Business Schools Richard left academic life in 2011 for voluntary community development work. He was lured back into academe in 2014 by the prospect of taking over the reins running the Masters Programme in Social Entrepreneurship at Goldsmiths’ Institute for Creative and Cultural Entrepreneurship (ICCE). Goldsmiths is famous world-wide for its creativity and innovativeness and this is clearly reflected within the programme.
Richard has over 50 publications including a paper reprinted in two different international reference collections. He was the Founding Series Editor of Dialogues in Critical Management Studies and co-editor of the collections The Third Sector (Emerald, 2011), Managing Knowledge: Critical Investigations of Work and Learning (Macmillan, 2000), and Knowledge and Innovation in the New Service Economy (Edward Elgar, 2000).
He is an accomplished academic researcher with a rigorous cross-disciplinary approach. This is based on practical experience with Third Sector organisations complemented by expertise in organisational development and Innovation Studies.
