Biography

Paresh Wankhade is the Professor of Leadership and Management at Edge Hill University Business School. He is also the Director of Research and the Programme Leader for the new Professional Doctorate in Emergency Services Management

He is the Founder Editor-In-Chief  of the International Journal of Emergency Services and is recognised as an expert in this field. His research and publications focus on analyses of strategic leadership, organisational culture, organisational change and interoperability within the public services with a special focus on emergency management.

He serves as the lead of the Strategic Advisory Board of the Larrey Society, an international think tank on hospital care and ambulance delivery. He has been regularly chairing  specialist panels  tracks on the leadership and management of emergency services at major international conferences including the annual European Academy of Management (EURAM) Conference; British Academy of Management (BAM) Conference, International Research Society for Public Management (IRSPM) Conference  and the Public Administration Committee (PAC) Conferences. His publications have contributed to inform debates around interoperability of public services and challenges faced by individual organisations and bridging the theory-practice gap. His last book on Social Capital, Sociability and Community Development explored these issues in eight selected case-study countries around the world. His recent work (co-authored with professionals) has explored leadership and management perspectives in the ambulance  and police  services investigating key management themes in these services. He is regularly invited to speak at emergency service related events. He also contributes to local and regional events and supports collaboration between academia and public, private and third sector organisations.

He is currently supervising two professional doctoral candidates and four MPhil/PhD candidates and is keen to hear from individuals who are interested in reading for a PhD in leadership and management of public services or related themes.
