Farewell and Welcome

I received recently an email link containing our pictures during our last black-tie dinner at St. Cross College. As I browse through all the pictures, I can’t help but feel nostalgic about the whole Oxford experience, thinking how time flies really fast.   It was only late last year when I decided to pursue a […]

Module 2 and an EXAM!!!!

The residential week for Module 2 was a scary prospect. The first thing that we had to do was an exam on the Wednesday morning (the exam was on Module 1), then it would be into the lectures for Module 2. This would be my first formal university exam for over 20 years. Between the […]

One of the rewarding things about doing the course in Oxford, is the people that I am meeting and the experiences that we share.  There is an incredibly great richness to the experiences and knowledge of the members of the cohort.

A journey to one of the roots which define my own existence as a sentient being and this is my will-of-wish. I have reasons to believe that we are practically at the end of an […]

From Oxford to the World: a simple equation…

It all began after a visit to Oxford as a tourist three years ago. During this tour, I was impressed by the beauty of this city; which encompasses all its activities around its university, its colleges and all students and professors. I was impressed by the history you feel while walking in the streets of […]

The First Steps

After I volunteered to write a blog about my experiences at the Saïd Business School, I thought “what the hell have you done”, which unsurprisingly was exactly the same thought that I had when I completed the enrolment process for the Diploma in Organisational Leadership. I intend to write a series of blog posts tracking […]

Reflecting Back

Everyone in the room, starting to wrap up their laptops, folder, packing bags, rushing towards the exit doors, waving goodbyes walking out of Oxford Saïd and off to their destinations. Only when the lights turned off, is when I realised how precious these days were that shaped module 3.  Every 6th week getting ready, packing bags, […]

Breaking the ice

This video was taken during module one of the Diploma in Global Business when everybody was new and trying to fit in. I had great fun putting this together as it not only brought the whole class to cooperate, but we became like a family. We now have Facebook and Whatsapp group chats that keeps […]
