The Pursuit of Excellence

A noticeable sense of nervous anticipation spread throughout the lecture theatre of Saïd Business School, like osmosis on a cold January morning. With forty-seven highly experienced professionals gathered from the far corners of twenty-eight differing countries, each eager to debunk the complexities of emerging markets and evolve their understanding of business at a global level, […]

It’s Sunday and the bus leaves from Gloucester Green (Oxford’s main bus station) towards the airport and I have mixed emotions after I had to say goodbye to an intense week of studying at Saïd Business School. It was the last module of the Diploma in Strategy and Innovation. Back in February, I arrived here […]

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 opportunity is that we can express our thoughts and directly influence how we are perceived.

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 […]

The start of my Oxonian journey

One of the scariest and nerve-wracking events for a 40-year old lady, apart from being aware that I hit 40 and also that I’m disclosing it here, and being a mother to a teen, a wannabe teen (hubby) and a puppy entering his teens, is getting back to studies!! Of course, you know that when […]

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 […]

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 […]
