An attempt to crank the mental gears before the exam.

It’s 5:30am.  My alarm is buzzing harshly. This cannot be right. It’s Sunday. Clearly, I’ve forgotten to turn my alarm to its “weekday only” setting. Only I haven’t forgotten. No, I begrudgingly admit to myself, this isn’t a mistake. I set the alarm on purpose.  We are having our first Skype call among the 2015 […]

…That’s inspirational

For me, the Diploma of Organisational Leadership has been inspirational.  The inspiration has come from multiple sources, and, often, from places that I had not anticipated. When you come to Oxford you expect to be inspired by brilliant minds.  And when it happens and you interact with a person whose intellect is razor sharp, it […]

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 […]

Once again a thoroughly enjoyable, immersive and “all too soon over” week at...

The second residential week of the Diploma in Organisational Leadership at Oxford kicked off with our first two hour examination. “Gowning up” in Sub Fusc for the examination, as is traditional at Oxford, added to the excitement and somewhat nervousness for most of us for whom it had been a while since we had last […]

A journey to remember, the Oxford way

Being a mother of two very young children can be quite a challenge most days and to be able to commit to additional responsibilities and a change in lifestyle can be a challenging yet an amazing experience. It has been a few months since I enrolled myself on to this course and I have to […]

Where the W’s are…

I wake up in the middle of the night. “Why”? is my first thought. “What?”, is my second. And my third one is “How does not start with a W.” Do I detect some pre-exam stress? The Why, What and How are everywhere nowadays! Especially when I sit in front of my books and notes […]

Three weeks last summer….

Last year I attended the Said Business School’s Advanced Management and Leadership Program (OAMLP).  The course was a three week residential program (at Egrove Park, not the main business school) that did three things: refreshed and updated my business skills (broad highlights of MBA subjects); assessed my leadership style (via 360 degree feedback, plus some […]
