A bit about me and my blog

My name is Mani Pillai. After some 17 years of working in various corporate communications roles in financial services, I started a doctoral research at Brunel London University in 2019. Under the supervision of Professor Mustafa Ozbilgin and Dr Joana Vassilopoulou, my research project will examine the career experiences and career strategies of individuals from diverse backgrounds in the London Insurance Market.

I am running this blog for two reasons. Firstly, there are insightful academic research papers and books on a plethora of work issues which the industry is not always aware of. I hope to share and discuss some of these critical pieces of work in my blog to help to bridge industry with academia. Secondly, this blog will also reflect on my transition to academia and my research journey.

Importantly, I wish this blog to be a continuing discussion on work-related issues and will welcome your thoughts and comments.
