Phil Swan

Business development manager at Cardiff University

Areas of expertise:


I am the Business Development Manager within the CPD Unit and the principal liaison between the CPD Unit and the College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences.

My role includes supporting colleagues in the development and delivery of flexible CPD offerings, including short courses through to standalone postgraduate modules, as well as monitoring, collating and reporting on data in relation to CPD activity.

I am currently undertaking a doctoral research project at the University of South Wales under the supervision of Professor Dylan Jones-Evans. The study has been commissioned by the Federation of Small Business (FSB) Wales and focuses on the behaviours of Generation Z (born post-2000) entrepreneurs in Wales and includes looking at the social contexts that surround their entrepreneurial behaviour.
