Biography

Peter joined the School in 2016. His professional background lies in healthcare, qualifying as a Registered Mental Nurse (RMN) in 1991 and working as a Community Psychiatric Nurse in Glasgow prior to specialising in the area of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) for those suffering from psychosis. He was awarded an MBA from the University of Strathclyde Business School (2002) and his career shifted towards management research after an appointment by the Scottish Government to evaluate the integration of NHS Greater Glasgow and Glasgow City Council's drug and alcohol addiction services. He subsequently acted as a management consultant to Glasgow Addiction Services for three years and formed part of the Scottish Government's Joint Improvement Team that helped manage the dissolution of the former Argyll & Clyde Health Board.

He completed his PhD at the University of Strathclyde Business School (2011). His research examined the relationship between strategy legitimacy ('is this the right thing to do?') and strategy commitment ('and will I go along with it?') in the context of 'deliberately-emergent strategy' where edicts and participation are simultaneously used in chorus.

Peter has held the positions of Lecturer and Teaching Fellow, University of St Andrews School of Management (2012-2016), Visiting Lecturer, University of Aberdeen Business School (2014 and 2016), Teaching Associate, University of Strathclyde Business School (2007- 2012) and Research Associate, University of Glasgow Medical Research Council (2011). He has taught ‘Strategic Management’ and ‘Strategy Consulting in Practice’ in SE Asia and the Gulf Region as part of the Strathclyde MBA (2006-2016).

Peter has undertaken extensive organisational research within the areas of addiction and child protection (NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde), cancer services (Glasgow City Council and NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde), youth antisocial behaviour in Glasgow's housing regeneration areas (Medical Research Council) and advanced nursing practice (NHS Education Scotland).
