Have I found what I was looking for at Oxford?

Living in the digital world is a great opportunity. We can click to like and click to share. But the great chance is we can express our thoughts and directly influence how we are perceived. Our program manager proposed to me to write a blog. I did not hesitate. I admire writing. I learn writing. […]

Strategy and Innovation – Module 2

I’m late in sharing this blog on my Module 2 experience, but nevertheless here it is..   First things foremost…the biggest highlight when we went back for Module 2 was wearing the Sub fusc (one of those Oxford quirks) on Day 1, when we gave our Module 1 exam. We gathered at the college all […]

Strategy and Innovation – What do I wish I had known before I started the course?

I thought a lot about attending this course before I applied and mostly I thought about all the barriers and concerns, of how little free time I already had, and how selfish would it be to spend less time with my young son; how would I juggle my work commitments and still be able to […]

When I was asked by the Saïd Business School Marketing Team to share my experience on a blog, I agreed to do it without a second thought given that a similar blog a year ago moved me to start my own application. So, if you are an experienced professional who is either thirsty to learn, […]

My new reality – The Diploma in Global Business

I could not help but think, as I circled the desks of the Radcliffe Camera to find a free study spot, of those who came before me.  What would I give for some of Tolkien’s creativity, the prescience of Aldous Huxley, the courage of Gertrude Bell, or Oscar Wilde’s wit? Was it enough that I […]

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 […]

Funded by Strategy

Admittedly I have long loved ‘Strategy’. Though I had never formally studied the subject; I was drawn to its wisdom and economics. As a young practising micro-economist, I would read Porters papers in awe. I yearned for that kind of wisdom: that clarity in judgement; that ease in explanation. If only I could touch that […]

My journey to Oxford University.

My journey to Oxford University seemed to have begun even before I knew it!! A couple of summers ago, I was visiting Oxford, it was a Sunday and as we walked along I saw a college with a huge courtyard. When I attempted to go in I was stopped and told no one can enter […]

At Oxford with Superheroes

Aristotle said that courage is the virtue that enables all other virtues, and as an entrepreneur, it is important to show a lot of courage but to balance it with temperance. At the age of 24, I incorporated my first business, EGV Recruitment, which was active in medical recruitment. We expanded it internationally after one […]
