David Goodman

Senior Lecturer in Leadership and Management

David Goodman


I joined the University in January 2015 and previously worked at the University of Portsmouth between 2004-2014 in the Faculty of Environment and the Faculty of Creative and Cultural Industries as Business Development Manager. In Portsmouth, I worked on a wide range of business, research and consultancy projects alongside associate lecturing roles across Faculty within the School of Architecture and School of Creative Technology.

Before working in Higher Education my career was in the private sector within the theatre engineering industry. I worked on a range of private and public projects for clients as diverse as P&O Cruises through to The Royal Ballet School.

Having initially graduated with a degree in Fine Art, I returned to study and spent several years studying, as a ‘distance learner’, with the Open University resulting in Master in Business Administration (MBA) in 2008. Committed to life-long learning, further study resulted in a Professional Certificate in Accounting (Open University 2013) and Postgraduate Certificate in Learning & Teaching in Higher Education (2017).

I am the Programme Coordinator for the Chartered Manager Degree Apprenticeship Programme (BA (Hons) Management). I teach a spectrum of Leadership and Management topics but in particular: organisational behaviour; leadership and management of groups; creativity and innovation within organisations.

I use problem-based approaches with students and try to use ‘live’ projects within teaching. These projects provide students an educational challenge in a ‘real’ context and reflect my personal experience of work based learning.
