  • "I completed my undergraduate degree in Hotel & Catering Management at Brookes many years ago so coming back was the natural choice for my PhD. My supervisors are fantastic, always very supportive and encouraging, enabling me to achieve my ambition of obtaining a doctorate within the field of hospitality."
