Formerly a senior manager for NHS in Scotland, his substantive roles included (Hon.) Fellow in the College of Medicine and Veterinary Medicine at the University of Edinburgh (2014-2016), Government steering group member and service development of the Scottish Chronic Pain Service (2013-2015).

As Visiting Professor to the Hall, Dr Fascia has a dual role. To promote excellent and robust research and engagement within the Oxford collegiate and to participate in research projects with appropriate partners, both nationally and internationally.

The role of religious experience in the knowledge transfer process. ISBN (eBook) 9783668681798 - ISBN (Book) 9783668681804

To date, there have been few studies which denote the affect of socio-cultural or religious phenomena within a transfer scenario as significant, and how this interaction may affect the outcome of the knowledge shared or exchanged in a business context. This paper therefore examines how, in a business context, knowledge transfer is influenced by perspectives given to the knowledge.
