At Newcastle University I give 10 lectures in Advanced Agribusiness management and 10 lectures in Estate Management.The aim is provide students with conceptual frameworks for successful business management then illustrate with applications principally drawn from my current experience in the directorship of a European agribusiness supplying finest quality winter salads to UK and Scandinavian multiple retailers and decorative foliage to continental markets. Similarly Estate management lectures are supplemented by illustrations from personal and family intersts in rural property in farming,recreation and development and maintenance of land for public and private uses.
