I believe that good teaching and learning is based upon: 1) developing understanding of subject matter through critical thinking and enquiry 2) developing self-belief, self-confidence and self-expression 3) combining the above with independent study.
- Which subject(s) do you teach?
I work in most aspects of management and social sciences, from foundation degree to PhD. The past year I have worked with A' Level, final year undergraduate, MBA and PhD students. I am equally at home with beginners as advanced students. My subject areas are core business skills; economics, entrepreneurship, innovation, project management, change management, communication studies, strategic management and planning, branding, PR, CSR, marketing, consumer behaviour, partnership and sponsorship. I also advise on research methodology, especially constructing dissertations and theses from Bachelor's degree to PhD, essay/report writing, personal statements, structure and proofreading and draft appeals for students unhappy with issues surrounding their grades.

Inspirational, supportive, articulate, reliable, expert. Kiran embraces all of these characteristics and more. His knowledge of sports business management and organisation is vast and second to none. He is extremely well-networked and through his contacts can introduce his students to real-life experiences. As a lecturer, he was organised, patient and had the ability to articulate complicated concepts in an easy to understand style I would highly recommend him to any future employer, in academia or business
Kiran was pivotal to my progression into commercial sport. He gave me the confidence, academic foundation & practical insight to pursue a career in a closed-off industry. His lectures were thorough and in-depth providing current & relevant examples & his feedback fair & constructive. To date Kiran has been the most influential person in my academic and professional life; he always went that extra mile, preparing me for interviews, introducing me to useful contacts or giving critical feedback for assessments
Kiran was my professor at the European School of Economics where I studied Sport Management, & Marketing & Sponsorship. He focused the course to motivate his students to learn & succeed to the best of their ability. His lectures were full of realistic examples & he constantly promoted class discussions. He was always available for extra help to ensure I had a complete understanding of the subject matter. After completion Kiran remained available for guidance. I would strongly recommend him as a professor.
