Susan Barry

Liverpool Business School

Faculty of Business and Law

A Senior Lecturer in Executive Education at the School of Leadership and Organisational Development at Liverpool Business School, I lecture across a range of MBA, MSc, postgraduate and undergraduate programmes as well as corporate work. Prior to joining LJMU I had over twenty years’ experience working within education, as a specialist in business education. I have held various leadership roles, largely centred around organisational, staff and learner development and have also worked in HR within the public sector, before re-joining academia to teach at the Liverpool Business School within the faculty of Human Resource Management and then going on to join the School of Leadership and Organisational Development. I am research active and have published. As a qualitative researcher I am interested in the lived experiences of individuals, groups and organisational dynamics and the interface with organisational policy and processes. With a focus on examining implications for theory and practice, to benefit both organisations and employee health and wellbeing.
