Will has published in top American, European and Asian journals in the fields of management, sociology, industrial relations and geography, and his research has been competitively funded by the Economic and Social Research Council, the Arts Council and various national governments.

Will’s research focuses on three areas. First, on how reputation and leadership is built, managed and rehabilitated within different types of institutions. Second, on the mobility, economic impact and social networks of highly skilled migrants. Third, on some of the methodological, fieldwork and practical challenges with interviewing elites.

Impact research

Will is currently working on two impact projects. The first is co-creating and implementing a series of leadership mind-sets with the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts. Funded by the Arts Council, England, Will is now researching how libraries can maximise their social and economic value for a broad group of stakeholders.
