Bio Summary

In 2015, I chose to leave BG Group PLC (now Royal Dutch Shell PLC) due to personal circumstance. As a result of being widowed in mid-2014, I felt it was important to take a career break to care for my two sons, both under the age of 10, in order to ensure their wellbeing. Prior to leaving BG Group PLC, I sought direction from senior management on my options for the future and proposed to them that I undertake further academic research which could be translated back into BGGroup PLC at a future date.

As a result of these discussions and reviews, I accepted a financial package that would ensure my financial independence and developed the PhD proposal to submit for an academic programme. This resulted in my PhD proposal to undertake research to better value (both financially and from a non-financial perspective) State Owned Enterprises (SOEs) specifically National Oil Companies (NOCs).

Building upon my extensive industry experience I determined that I wanted to expand my knowledge and therefore undertook an MSc in Geopolitics and Security. As a result of this MSc, I undertook my MSc thesis in Norway, reviewing the Oil For Development programme orchestrated by the Norwegian State. Then, I proposed my PhD to the School of Management who worked with me to develop my idea into a viable PhD which is currently being developed and will form the basis of a new approach to valuing companies with limited public information.
