DCU Business School Executive Dean awarded honorary fellowship of the EMII
The Emergency Management Institute Ireland (EMII), which has its home in DCU, awarded the honorary fellowship of the EMII to Professor Dominic Elliott.
The Chairperson, Sean Ward, delivered the following citation:
“Dominic, on behalf of the Board and Members of the EMII, I am delighted to recognise your achievements and the significant contribution you make across multiple aspects of emergency management by making you an Honorary Fellow of the EMII.
The Honorary Fellow award is the highest honour bestowed on any individual by the EMII. It is awarded for outstanding achievements in the field of Emergency Management. In Dominic’s case, we especially recognise the contribution which he has made to the development of academic knowledge in emergency and business continuity management.
It is difficult to convey in a few minutes the massive contribution which Dominic has made.
Dominic has more than thirty years’ experience in Higher Education, following 6 years in industry and public service. From a research perspective, Dominic has published widely in the fields of Strategy and Crisis Management with particular interest in how organizations learn, or fail to learn, from Crisis and Business Continuity Management – research that has stretched across a number of sectors including, Finance, Football, Child Protection Services and Petrochemicals, amongst others.
With a commitment to practice and impact, Dominic has worked with a variety of organizations, as a consultant or an Executive Education facilitator, including BP, Sainsburys, IBM, HMRC, Royal Bank of Scotland, the Government of Lesotho, Merrill Lynch, BNP-Paribas, and Philips to name a few.
Dominic has shared his research and knowledge across more than 30 universities globally, from Wisconsin to Ukraine, Shanghai to Bologna, Dubai to Mumbai.
More recently Dominic has sought to develop his knowledge in the application of AI, especially within the context of Higher Education and the opportunities and threats it may create.
As an Institute, we were delighted when Professor Elliott was appointed the Executive Dean of the Dublin City University Business School, joining in early 2023. Prior to joining DCU Dominic was the Paul Roy Professor of Strategy at the University of Liverpool Management School from 2002 to 2017. At Liverpool, he took on a number of roles, including that of Dean.
Immediately before moving to DCU, between 2017-2022, Dominic was Dean of the School of Business and Creative Industries at the University of West of Scotland.
For many of us who completed the Masters in Emergency Management here at DCU, it is for his key publications “Business Continuity Management: A Crisis Management Approach” with Schwartz and Herbane and “Key Readings in Crisis Management: Systems and Structures for Prevention and Recovery” with Denis Smith that he is most remembered – plus his countless peer-reviewed journal papers.
Just when everything was going so well… we discovered he follows Leicester City and Leicester Tigers – so no wonder he studies crisis management!
So, Dominic, I am proud that the EMII is recognising all that you have done and continue to do. Through this Award, we can celebrate a remarkable individual and your contribution to the development of emergency management education and research. We look forward to spending more time with you at EMII events and wish you well as Executive Dean at DCU Business School and as you set up your new home in Ireland”.
