Nation branding [also referred to as place branding] is a niche multi-disciplinary field of study within conventional marketing management. It involves the evaluation and management, thereafter of the image, perception and positioning [awareness and reputation] of a country/place in the minds of multiple stakeholders, including tourists. To date, my research has contributed to niche areas of tourism, including how macro dimensions - such as perceptions of how a country is governed, the culture and heritage of a country, its competitive advantages, immigration regime and inherent perceptions of a country’s citizens – influence the travel behaviour of tourists [their preferences and travel intentions]. Moreover, my research focus on the COVID-19 pandemic as a contemporary dimension influencing travel behaviour has provided academics and tourism practitioners with critical insights into how crisis-induced perceived risk factors such as physical, psychological, social and financial risk have affected the psyche of tourists and constrain tourism demand. My completed research spans two inter-linked themes in tourism Nation Branding and its subsequent influence on tourists’ travel behaviour. Since 2017, I have completed three research projects and authored and co-authored over 20 published articles in local (25%) and international journals (75%).</p> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-other-experts-in field--type-entity-reference field--label-above"> <div class="field--label">Other experts in</div> <div class="field--item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/1615" hreflang="en">Tourism</a></div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-visit field--type-entity-reference field--label-above"> <div class="field--label">Visit</div> <div class="field--item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/1377" hreflang="en">Tourism Research in Economic Environs and Society (TREES)</a></div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-visit-fsd field--type-entity-reference field--label-above"> <div class="field--label">Visit</div> <div class="field--item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/1423" hreflang="en">Faculty of Economic and Management Sciences</a></div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-other-media field--type-text-long field--label-above"> <div class="field--label">Other Media</div> <div class="field--item"><p>ORCHID: https: //orcid.org/0000-0003-4084-8906</p> <p>Research Gate: <a href="https://www.researchgate.net/profile/Tafadzwa-Matiza">https://www.researchgate.net/profile/Tafadzwa-Matiza</a></p> <p>Web of Science: <a href="https://publons.com/researcher/AAZ-7333-2020/">https://publons.com/researcher/AAZ-7333-2020/</a></p> </div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-physical-address field--type-text-long field--label-inline"> <div class="field--label">Physical Address</div> <div class="field--item"><p>NWU, Potchefstroom Campus, Building E3, 228</p> </div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-telephone-number field--type-string field--label-inline"> <div class="field--label">Telephone Number</div> <div class="field--item">+27(0)18 285 2331</div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-cellphone field--type-string field--label-inline"> <div class="field--label">Cellphone Number</div> <div class="field--item">079 804 0687</div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-e-mail-main field--type-email field--label-inline"> <div class="field--label">E-mail</div> <div class="field--item">tafadzwa.matiza@nwu.ac.za</div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-image field--type-image field--label-hidden field--item"> <img src="/sites/news.nwu.ac.za/files/files/experts/11265394_10153043044063462_5075374723107925982_o%20%282%29.jpg" width="1065" height="946" alt="" typeof="foaf:Image" class="img-responsive" /> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-photo-caption field--type-string field--label-hidden field--item">Tafadzwa Matiza</div> Mon, 31 Oct 2022 11:49:49 +0000 BELINDA BANTHAM 28592 at https://news.nwu.ac.za Chris van Heerden https://news.nwu.ac.za/expert/chris-van-heerden-0 <span>Chris van Heerden</span> <span><span lang="" about="/user/32504" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">BELINDA BANTHAM</span></span> <span>Mon, 10/31/2022 - 13:39</span> <div class="field field--name-field-field-of-expertise field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden field--items"> <div class="field--item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/1095" hreflang="en">Economics</a></div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-person-s-title field--type-list-string field--label-hidden field--item">Prof</div> <div class="field field--name-field-job-title field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden field--item">Professor</div> <div class="field field--name-field-name-surname field--type-string field--label-hidden field--item">Chris</div> <div class="field field--name-field-job-role field--type-string field--label-hidden field--item">Coordinating Programme Leader for Risk Manage</div> <div class="field field--name-field-surname field--type-string field--label-hidden field--item">van Heerden</div> <div class="field field--name-field-other-experts-from field--type-entity-reference field--label-above"> <div class="field--label">Other experts from</div> <div class="field--item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/1275" hreflang="en">Faculty of Economic and Management Sciences</a></div> </div> <div class="field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field--item"><p>Chris van Heerden is a professor in the School of Economics at the North-West University (Potchefstroom Campus).

My research focuses on how theory can be used in practice and help practitioners in the financial sector to understand the behaviour of financial market participants and their risk profiles. With this research and my researcher partners have been collaborating with a private investment firm in South Africa to help perfect their investment client profile.</p> <p>Therefore, my research is aimed at providing information to the industry that can be applied practically, by understanding the behaviour of market participants (behavioural finance) in the investment and banking industry. This area of research has also extended into the banking sector to better profile the behaviour of depositors and their behavioural finance biases. A more critical analysis has also been done on the demographic profile of bank customers relating to their banking behaviour. This will also enable banks to predict possible bank runs and minimize losses. Some of my research has also looked into how behavioural finance (herding behaviour of investors) on the stock market can lead to extreme volatility in a firms stock price and possible losses.</p> <p>Over the years I have delivered more than 8 postgraduate students along with a recent PhD student. In my career, I have managed to publish more than 30 research articles in internationally recognised journals. Between 2020 and 2021 the last 2 years, I have published an average of eight articles per year in high quality, peer-reviewed journals to make my contribution to the field of banking and finance. Up to date I have an output of 17,23 in total research output.</p> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-other-experts-in field--type-entity-reference field--label-above"> <div class="field--label">Other experts in</div> <div class="field--item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/1342" hreflang="en">Economics</a></div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-visit field--type-entity-reference field--label-above"> <div class="field--label">Visit</div> <div class="field--item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/1352" hreflang="en">Trade and Development (TRADE)</a></div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-visit-fsd field--type-entity-reference field--label-above"> <div class="field--label">Visit</div> <div class="field--item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/1423" hreflang="en">Faculty of Economic and Management Sciences</a></div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-other-media field--type-text-long field--label-above"> <div class="field--label">Other Media</div> <div class="field--item"><p style="margin-left:48px;
