A message from PVC Faculty of Business and Law, Tim Nichol:
“It is with great sadness that I write to inform you that our dear colleague, Dr Alistair Beere, passed away at the end of August.
“In April we recognised Alistair’s huge contribution to the work of the Liverpool Business School and Liverpool John Moores University over many years. That work touched the lives of us all as colleagues, and the lives of countless students.
“We will all have our personal memories of Alistair and a constant theme, I know, will be those many acts of kindness, the constant acts of support and the help so willing given.
“More than anything, I will always be grateful to Alistair for the example he gave us all regarding the commitment we must have to our students and the experiences we need to provide beyond the classroom. In particular, he demonstrated the need to take students out to show them the world around us and the benefits of bringing the business world into the school. Students were central to all he did, and we will remember him best by reflecting this in our work.
“It is very sad to say goodbye to our friend and all our thoughts are with Wendy, Alistair’s wife, and the family. I know you will join me in sending Wendy our condolences, love and support.”
