I was born and bred in South Africa - Johannesburg I am fluently bilingual in English and Portuguese. I obtained my first degree in Sociology of Communication in South Africa. I then moved abroad to live and work in Portugal. Moreover, I travelled to England to pursue my postgraduate studies at the Open University. I also pursued my field research in England and later obtained my PhD from Fairfax University, Louisiana, USA. My qualifications thus include a Doctorate in Human Resource Management - Human Resource Planning with the title: "The Relevance of the Labour Market in structuring organisational human resource policies which enable the effective management of organisational change through the prioritisation of individuals so as to achieve organisational excellence". I was granted a scholarship from the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation in Portugal, for the PhD degree programme, from 1997-2000. My current research has been on Human Resource Management, training, learning and development as well as emotional intelligence and its link with the behaviour and management of people in organisations. Other areas of interest are related to ethical studies, leadership, entrepreneurship and the need for training and development in the realm of tourism. Academically, as a facilitator, I endeavour to implement an holistic-systemic approach and in this way have both developed my holistic-systemic and conceptual thinking abilities and nurture those of my students’ as well. I am currently a lecturer/senior lecturer in the Human Resource Department of the Business School at the University of Glamorgan. I also conduct supervision of HRM MA and PhD Dissertations. My interests include playing Chess, gardening, cooking and baking, cycling, visiting museums, reading, listening to music and travelling.
