Examine Business focuses on case studies, reports, market/economic research, tips & tricks, how-to’s, and general analysis of businesses and economic developments from around the world. Furthermore, the main aim of this site is not to provide business news, but, thoroughly researched and useful articles/reports that organizations can make use of.
I am the founding editor of the Examine Business website, while my wife consults on media and communication topics. I have worked for over a decade in different business departments, predominantly in marketing and project management. Along the way, I also seemed to have earned the nickname “The Messiah”, for helping to turn around and reform the marketing departments of some of the businesses I worked for. However, my interest always lied in marketing and the way businesses and economies have developed/are developing.
I am currently completing my Doctorate in Business Administration (DBA) with the Edinburgh Business School (UK), having recently graduated from the University of Aberdeen (UK) with a Master of Science in Digital Marketing Leadership. Furthermore, I earned my Bachelors Degree from The Open University (UK), in Politics, Philosophy, and Economics.
