I can not express how pleased I am to have finally submitted my PhD thesis for examination. There are so many friends, family members, colleagues, participants, clients, researchers, tweeps, acquaintances and strangers whose words, thoughts, support and understanding were critical in the development (and most importantly the completion) of the thesis. To all of you, thank you so much. It really is finished this time.
I’ll be posting a link to the full Pdf shortly. [Edit - here is the link to download the thesis] Please find the in brief version (abstract) below.
