Her previous appointments include that of Director of Studies for the International MBA and Executive MBA at Bristol University, and she was also Head of the International Small Business Centre in Bristol, where she developed programmes to encourage entrepreneurship and business growth in Bosnia, Vietnam and Kenya.
