Brian lectures in strategic management, operations and marketing and related subjects at Griffith College Cork.

He brings a wealth of relevant knowledge to our students having lectured in management subjects at National College of Ireland (2006 - 2011) and having worked as a manager with both corporate companies and start-ups. He also worked as a distance learning and e-learning author with the BBC and EIQA and extensively as a business journalist.

Brian's teaching philosophy can be summed up as follows;

"It's our responsibility as educators to get our students engaged with the learning content, so that they can find something in it that they can apply in their work and future careers - something that makes it interesting for them. That can be really quite buzzy: getting a class engaged in an idea or real life example of how ideas can be applied in an actual workplace and seeing the possible rewards of that."
