Dr Annette Naudin is Associate Professor and Academic Lead for Teaching Excellence and Student Experience in the College of English and Media.

Prior to working in academia, Annette set up a creative enterprise, running a successful textile design business, supplying outlets such as Liberty, Harrods and exporting to Japan, USA and Europe. This first-hand experience of creative entrepreneurship led to creative industry consultancy work with clients including local authorities, Craftspace and Arts Council England.

Annette completed a Ph.D (2015) at the Centre for Cultural Policy Studies at the University of Warwick, exploring the cultural worker’s experience of entrepreneurship. Annette’s research is concerned with inequalities and the challenges faced by cultural workers, the relationship to cultural policy, to place and to higher education. Working with a range of partners (such as Birmingham City Council and Arts Connect), Annette has engaged in evaluations, commissioned research, and collaborative work to address inequalities in cultural work and influence cultural policy.
