After brief stints in the car industry and public health, Leigh joined the University of Huddersfield in 1993 as a Research Assistant. She quickly became involved in teaching and soon decided on a career path in lecturing. Leigh has worked for the Business School ever since and has taught across a range of undergraduate, post graduate and professional courses. Leigh started teaching economics and strategy and has more recently moved to managing people, personal and professional development and entrepreneurship. Leigh enjoys working with practicing managers and encouraging participants to apply theories and new ideas to their management practice. The best part of the job is seeing participants change and grow in confidence as a product of learning and developing new skills and mindsets. In recent years, Leigh has worked with entrepreneurs in developing business ideas and new venture creation.
Leigh is the Programme Director for the MBA and MSc in Healthcare Management and continues to teach modules across postgraduate and professional programmes.
Leigh’s research interests have also evolved, ranging from supply chain management, through to developing education practices that can support budding entrepreneurs.
She is currently Course Leader for the CMS and Year Tutor for the MSc in Healthcare Management and teaches across a range of applied programmes.
Leigh’s research interests have also evolved, ranging from critically evaluating the role of theories and concepts in business thinking, through to developing education practices that can support budding entrepreneurs.
