Judie Gannon

My research areas and interests span several aspects of the industry including organisational behaviour, talent management, leadership and leadership development, employability and low pay/living wage issues. My first love, after hospitality, is human resource management and in particular strategic human resource management.

I have published in the areas of internationalisation, strategic human resource management, expatriation and management development. i currently supervise three PhD students and three Doctorates in Coaching & Mentoring - with several successful completions and examinations at this level.  

In 2008 I initiated the development of the Bacchus Mentoring scheme where industry executives, mainly Brookes alumni mentor final year and postgraduate students as they transition into the world of work. This innovation aims to ensure better first moves for hospitality and tourism graduates and over the longer term retain talent for our sector. The scheme now has 200 student mentees and 140 mentors from across all industry sectors. In 2011 I was awarded an Oxford Brookes Teaching Fellowship for the extension of this scheme where final year undergraduate students now mentor first year students as they transition into University and prepare for their second year work placements.
