Details about Expertise / Competences / Technologies
Prior to joining the Dublin Institute of Technology to lecture Human Resource Development (HRD), Sue Mulhall ran her own learning, consulting and coaching business for over a decade and previously was a HRD practitioner for 13 years. She is a pracademic, combining theory and practice, particularly in the field of career management, and has published both nationally and internationally.
Her international award-winning doctorate in the areas of human resource development (2012 Emerald Outstanding Award in the Human Resource Management category) explores how participants construct and interpret their career experiences, including their career success, in the changing world of work and employment. This research has been disseminated in international publications (four sole authored journal articles, two sole authored book chapters and eight papers presented at conferences) and is being prepared for future publication (four working papers and two proposals for career academic textbooks, including one requested sole authored and one speculative joint venture). As an expert in my field, I have been invited to collaborate on a Horizon2020 funding proposal exploring societal resilience in 29 countries to understand the social repercussions of the recent financial crisis and to chair a track (Measurement and Evaluation) at the annual conference of the Academy of Human Resource Development in the University of Limerick (June 2015)
This significant teaching and research experience is supplemented by a demonstrable track record in human resource management, gained while leading my own knowledge-based HRM learning, consulting and coaching company that developed leadership performance and potential, with a particular focus on contributing to the business environment and the wider community. In addition, I have considerable experience as a HR practitioner in the private, public and non-profit sectors, am a chartered member of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development and have worked in academic administration. This record of achievement of blending academic excellence with practice in supportive learning contexts is enhanced by my excellent critical thinking and analytical ability, communication and interpersonal skills and the highest calibre organisation and coordination skills. It also augments my capacity to work in a creative manner on my own initiative and in partnership with other team members.
