About Suzanne Withrington

Suzanne has a dual role at Teesside University; academic responsibilities are in the subject areas of entrepreneurship, strategic management, organisational behaviour, enterprise and project supervision. She teaches the full spectrum of provision from non accredited master classes to post graduate qualifications.

A specific area of interest is the exponential growth of the UK manufacturing industry through the entrepreneurial endeavours of a small number of companies; in particular how philanthropic Quaker companies such as Cadbury and Rowntree influenced a significant  change in work practice whilst pioneering new manufacturing techniques.

Enterprise interest and activities

Suzanne's enterprise interest is the relationship management of the Schools external partnerships within the spectrum of fraud, investigation and financial crime; this activity may be delivered locally, nationally and internationally and involve partners from a diverse range of sectors.

She works on behalf of the School with the law enforcement agencies, regulatory authorities and the private sector to promote Teesside University's expertise in this field and forges links between academe and commerce. This engagement is important in addressing current economic issues, whilst simultaneously informing the curriculum of future courses.
