BAM Event Report - Mid Career Faculty - Moving to the next level

15th December 2017

On 30th November 2017, 21 academics from various institutions across the UK gathered at Nottingham Business School to engage in a career development workshop hosted by the British Academy of Management and Nottingham Trent University’s Centre for People, Innovation and Performance.

One of the challenges facing mid-career faculty is developing a career plan in line with aspirations that matter for individuals, while embracing school and university strategic goals. In this workshop, academic leaders from leading business schools shared their vision as well as the strategies and tactics they deploy to develop mid-career faculty to the next level and beyond.

The event was led by Professor Greg Bamber (Monash University, Melbourne, Australia), Professor Nelarine Cornelius (Associate Dean, Academic Staff Development, School of Business and Management, Queen Mary University of London) and Professor Helen Shipton (Nottingham Business School, Nottingham Trent University).

The event panel was made up of the following esteemed academics:

  • Professor John Leopold (Emeritus Professor at Newcastle University Business School)
  • Professor Andy Lockett (Dean of Warwick Business School)
  • Professor Maura Sheehan (Edinburgh Napier University)
  • Professor Baback Yazdani (Dean of Nottingham Business School, Nottingham Trent University)

They provided insights from their career journey and used that to support attendees in developing a career plan that speaks to their unique strengths and aspirations, taking account of the context within which they are positioned. Delegates engaged in a unique and insightful career mapping process, and were able to communicate their challenges and future goals with members of the event panel in a small group setting.
One mid-career attendee said that this was the best development activity that they had ever experienced.
