Customer experience and innovation specialist Corinne Fenech on Monday announced that she is embarking on a new journey as Lecturer in Marketing at Glasgow Caledonian University.
“Today is a big one,” she said, before adding that while this means a change in career and country, having to relocate to Scotland, it is “not a change of purpose”.
Her new position comes after more than two years as Strategic Partner at Malta-based StreetHR and over a year as Lecturer in Organisational Behaviour at STC Higher Education. She is also a Business Consultant and Trainer at innovation training and consultancy firm Tink Tings, as well as Associate at London’s Institute of Business Ethics. Her experience also includes over 18 years at GO plc, where she worked in various positions, including Customer Experience Manager.
“I hope, pray, and will do my best to continue working in the areas of ethical business, social marketing, and human-centred design to the best of my abilities, and to learn new things along the way,” she added.
While she remarked that it is “not easy to take such a step,” she explained that her husband, Noel Fenech, along with her family, friends, and colleagues in Malta have all gone “out of their way” to support her. She also thanked the community at University of Glasgow Adam Smith Business School, the university where she is currently reading for a Doctor of Philosophy in Management at, as they have made this step change from daunting, to possible, to reality”.
She proceeded to express gratitude to Glasgow Caledonian University Head of Department of Fashion, Marketing, Tourism & Events Linda Shearer, “whose patience and support are admirable”.
“I will mess up, it will take me time, and a lot of ‘come again’ to get used to the accent, probably pulling off a couple of cultural gaffes on the way, but I look forward with courage and serenity,” she concluded.
Aside from her current studies, Ms Fenech also holds a Master of Arts in Business Ethics, a Master of Business Administration, and a Diploma in Management Studies, all from University of Malta. She also graduated from the Institute of Tourism Studies Malta with a Certificate in Hospitality Studies.
Glasgow Caledonian University is a public university in Scotland that was formed in 1993 following the merger of The Queen’s College and Glasgow Polytechnic, which were founded in 1875 and 1991, respectively.
