About Lisa Conway

Before joining the University as a Senior Lecturer, Lisa spent much of her career leading large teams within both commercial and public sector organisations.

Lisa began her career in retail management, in both store and head office management positions with well known brands in both supermarket and fashion retail.  

Subsequently, she spent several years in Senior Management roles in local government with particular expertise in the fields of economic development, regeneration, business growth, adult skills, learning and employability and with research interests in reaching the hard-to-reach to impact social mobility.

This background supports Lisa's leadership of modules in organisational management, managing people, retail management and intrapreneurship as well as her commitment to embedding employability skills into her teaching.

Most recently in her career, Lisa has worked successfully as a Management Consultant, both in the UK and the Middle East, helping organisations to develop and implement business development and transformation projects and empowering female postgraduate students to fulfil roles in employment.

As a member of the University's alumni, having completed her Master of Science in Management with Marketing here at the Business School, Lisa is particularly keen to pass the baton and help other University of Chester students to fulfil their potential.

Lisa is also current Chair of Young Enterprise Cheshire and Warrington Board.

  • Module Leader for Organisational Management,
