And so it begins once again…

The journey from signing up, getting accepted into Oxford, boarding the plane to meet what would become an amazing group of intelligent, accomplished, kind hearted and fun-loving group from around the world…to sitting in a room with 200 some odd Oxford students dressed in our sub fusc, sweating bullets, afraid to turn the page to […]

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 […]

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 […]

Why Oxford?

My first university degree was in a completely different field to the business world I currently find myself in. With a little experience under my belt, about 6 months ago, I started thinking about my next challenge, how can I push the boundaries?

My experience of the Diploma in Strategy and Innovation

I was travelling around rural Myanmar for 2 months straight before I got onto the plane to UK to attend the Diploma in Strategy and Innovation or DipSI Program. My mind was still focused on work and on Myanmar. It didn’t hit me until Wednesday morning when I showed up on the class that I […]

Oxford Diploma in Organisational Leadership – Module 1

On a bright, blustery Oxfordshire morning with the winter sun bouncing off the distinctive Bath stone and copper-clad spire, I arrived at Said Business School to begin module one of the Oxford Diploma in Organisational Leadership.

Leadership styles, organisational culture, motivation, teams, change, complexity...

The start of the first of four residential weeks in Oxford, for the Diploma in Organisational Leadership. Learning has taken place in Oxford for nearly a thousand years, making it the world’s second oldest surviving university, and the oldest in the English speaking world.
