Lecturer in Entrepreneurship

Biography

Martin Gannon is a Lecturer in Entrepreneurship.

Martin's research primarily explores the dynamics, machinations, and motivations underpinning entrepreneurial philanthropy. Broadly speaking, he is interested in exploring why some leading philanthropists move from success in the commercial world towards actively divesting their wealth. To this end, he is also interested in gaining an understanding of how family dynamics impact upon large scale wealth redistribution decisions, and how individuals' entrepreneurial backgrounds and experiences have helped to shape the contemporary philanthropic landscape . Martin holds Undergraduate and Masters degrees from Strathclyde Business School, University of Strathclyde (UK).

Martin currently serves on the Editorial Board of Tourism Management Perspectives, and his research is available in a range of leading international publications, including: Business History Review; Annals of Tourism Research; Tourism Management; Journal of Travel Research; the Service Industries Journal; International Journal of Contemporary Hospitality Management; Journal of Consumer Culture; Current Issues in Tourism; the Journal of Travel and Tourism Marketing; and Tourism Recreation Research.

Martin is the Module Leader for the postgraduate New Venture Planning module, both on campus (ENT 11101) and online (ENT 11501/ENT 11401). Further, he also teaches on a range of Entrepreneurship and Innovation modules, including Creativity, Innovation & Enterprise (ENT 08101), Managing Innovation (ENT 11607), and Starting a New Business (ENT 09101).
