Research statement

Professor Herington’s research contributes to the development of sustainably successful organisations using relationships as the basis for operations and success. Taking a marketing perspective, all stakeholders of the firm are customers with whom the organisation should build strong relationships in order to create a sustainable competitive advantage. Carmel continues to research the drivers and consequences of relationship-building with the current goal of developing relationship metrics that show the impact on the bottom line.

Contribution to management education

Carmel is an experienced post-graduate and executive education lecturer who has taught in different and diverse education settings in Australia and internationally (Asia). She combines her belief in the importance of relationships with a focus on continual improvement in her teaching approach and style. Her teaching has been awarded and she holds academic publications in teaching pedagogy.

Contribution to management practice

Carmel brings her previous experiences from profit and not for profit business experiences to academia. She has worked with tourism, allied health and retailers in the areas of relationship marketing and internal marketing. She will believe that her contribution to practice is complete when organisations are finally convinced that “looking after” everyone with whom a business has contact is really good for business.
