Where were you when you were accepted into Oxford?

I will always remember where I was when I decided to apply to study at Oxford, a bit like remembering what you were doing when the world lost Princess Diana or anyone else of remarkable position and calibre- those significant times in your life when something happens and changes you or your thinking in a […]

Imposter syndrome: let it drive you, not control you

When thinking about a subject for my first blog I was inspired by a conversation with a friend of mine who I met on the Post Graduate Diploma in Organisational Leadership at the University of Oxford. This person is someone I look up to a great deal, he’s a real high flyer working for one […]

The start of my Oxonian journey

A life game-changer at Saïd Business School

Life between myth & reality It’s really funny how the majority of us fall into the “I know it all” trap. This is a totally delusional belief framed by our mastery of our routine job, the people we usually deal with, the prevailing culture and traditions of our society and most importantly our egos.

Managing transitions

The end of the year invites us to pause and reflect. To take stock of the joys and challenges of the past year and to prepare for the year ahead. As the results of our final exam were just released, I have been thinking about my time in Oxford, another chapter coming to an end […]
