I spent almost ten years in the private sector before making a career change to academia. Now, I really enjoy teaching and research, plus integrating the two areas into practice. I have also done considerable organizational consulting and training. My co-authored book, “Motivating Language Theory,” was published by Palgrave-Springer last year, and I am working on a second one. I am also co-editor of the “International Journal of Business Communication.”
