Dr. Charles Knight
Salford Business School
Associate Dean Academic (Student Experience)
I am an academic leader and management consultant with a proven track record of delivery in the areas of learning and teaching and enterprise. I undertake consultancy and research into the digital economy with an emphasis on how organisations and individuals can and will adapt to disruption to existing business models and ways of working. I am involved in the Chartered Associate of Business Schools (CABS) Associate Deans Network. I have worked extensively with a range of Universities at the strategic level to develop and rationale their portfolios.
Previously to working at SBS, I was a director of the ERDF funded Productivity and Innovation Centre at Edge Hill University and a part of the leadership team in Edge Hill University Business School. Over the last ten years, I have been involved in both 'pure' research projects and commercially funded work on a consultancy basis. My interest in this type of work began when I did doctoral research exploring how front-line police officers were making use of mobile technologies.
