Along with her co-authors, professors Vasilis Theoharakis, Marian V. Jones, and Sumon K. Bhaumik, Tina’s paper is published in the special issue of the British Journal of Management on Advancing Research Methodologies in Management Scholarship. The paper analyses the macrostructure of spoken strategic communication and relates to Tina’s PhD, for which she received a full scholarship from the Faculty of Social Sciences.
This special-issue paper develops an adapted framework for analysing the structure of arguments executives of newly-public high-technology firms advance during their earnings conference calls (ECCs) with financial analysts. This knowledge can be utilised in executives’ preparation for future spoken strategic communication events. The paper is Open Access and can be viewed here.
Having a background in management and marketing, Tina’s PhD thesis at SUMS focused on strategic communication when firm executives engage in conversations about their new explorative activities with financial analysts. On being published, Tina said: “I am very excited about this first publication relating to my PhD as I believe that the framework it proposes can make a meaningful contribution to both theory and practice.“
“My time at SUMS has been an irreplaceable experience and provided me with skills and knowledge that have proven invaluable as I am working further on my research pipeline and making the next steps in my academic career.”
Tina is now a Visiting Fellow at Cranfield School of Management responsible for teaching and supervising masters-level students.
