Richard Calderwood has a background in economic geography, planning for retail location, marketing and supermarketing and is a Research Developer in the Institute for Business Research. His current research interests are in: advertising creativity, effectiveness, and strategy, retail marketing.

Richard has recently submitted his PhD dissertation entitled “Client Views on Developing Quality Advertising: The Role of Client Involvement, Relationship Stability, Agency Flexibility and Client Agency Competency and Expertise”. This research examined client side perspectives of why some advertising campaigns are more creative and more effective than others. Two U-shaped interactions were observed:  1) agencies with either low or high levels of competency are less likely to produce effective campaigns; medium levels of competency lead to the most effective advertising campaigns, 2) the most original work occurred when agencies either highly flexible or highly inflexible; originality was lowest when agencies were only moderately flexible.

Richard is currently involved in research projects, drawing together researches and facilitating bids for research.
