Presenters

Dr Brandon Lee
Assistant Professor of Strategy | Strategic Awareness and Business and Acumen

Brandon Lee Brandon’s research focuses on the emergence and evolution of new markets and industries. He examines firm-level strategies and broader market-level competitive dynamics and institutions and their interrelationships. He has a particular interest in market niches that arise due to opportunities created by the negative environmental and social externalities associated with conventional means of production. Industry niches such as organic food, renewable energy and green buildings are all sources of innovation and social change that can reshape consumer preferences and consumption patterns, reframe marketing and distribution, and alter how goods and services are produced.
