Dr. Tanya Le Roux

Before stepping into academia, Tanya worked as a communication professional in South Africa and the UK. She worked for large and small companies, and consulted on issues from strategic communication, communication in change management, to identity creation – and all the other communication management issues in-between.
She has lectured strategic communication management for 13 years in South Africa before joining Bournemouth University in 2017.
Tanya strongly believes in combining academic work and practical experience, locally and internationally, in order to benefit both academia and professional practice.
She shares her knowledge through the journal articles and chapters she has published, as well as through presentations at conferences. Tanya serves on the global Blue Ribbon Panel that evaluates the yearly international IABC (International Association for Business Communicators) Gold Quill Awards.
Her research interest is focused on strategic corporate communication management, and specifically the application thereof within the field of disaster risk reduction.
