Therese (Tess) C.N. Howes

Tess Howes has twenty years of experience as a professional member of staff at three Australian universities: The University of Technology, Sydney; Sydney University and Macquarie University. She is presenting one of the findings of her Doctor of Education thesis at the HERDSA 2015 conference, a conceptual framework of leading strategic planning in Australian universities. As an experienced higher education manager and strategic planning practitioner, Tess is very interested in the factors that influence the way individuals lead strategic planning in Australian universities and the different outcomes that result. Tess has a range of research interests in leadership, strategic planning, strategy development, management, the history of the Australian university sector, particularly the Dawkins Reforms, as well as turn of the century Australian women’s history. She extended her sabbatical to present and publish the findings of her doctoral study and establish a life history writing service as she is passionate about encouraging personal historical self-expression.
