Professor Adam Shore

Academic Director of Liverpool Business School, Liverpool John Moores University

Dr Adam Shore was appointed as the Academic Director of Liverpool Business School at Liverpool John Moores University in January 2018. Previously he was an Associate Professor and Director of Learning and Teaching for the School of Management at Swansea University. Adam’s role at LBS is wide reaching, having responsibility for student experience, teaching enhancement, internationalisation, and the promotion of high-quality research and enterprise. Adam is passionate about the student experience, and is a strong advocate of student voice, partnership and co-creation.

In 2004 Adam co-founded Dynamic Rock climbing centre, and drew upon this experience to develop a suite of modules in the area or entrepreneurship and business start-up, with a focus on authentic assessment methods. This continued real-world experience helps to inform his teaching and leadership style, promoting an entrepreneurial culture.

His research interests are in entrepreneurial learning, with a focus on grief and the impact this has on the ability of the individual to learn from mistakes. With a background in actuarial statistics, he uses a mixed methods approach to studying entrepreneurial phenomena.

Adam is a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy, a Fellow of the Chartered Management institute and a member of the Chartered Association of Business Schools’ Learning, Teaching and Student Experience committee.

To me, entrepreneurial leadership is a mind-set. It is about thinking and acting like a dynamic small business start-up, and using the creativity, optimism, and self-determinism found in a successful new venture as the central ethos in everything that we do. Operating with such a mind-set, and building a culture of entrepreneurial activity, leads us to challenge conventional wisdom, step-out of our comfort zone and drive institutional change in the pursuit of excellence.
