When I began my departure from Microsoft, I started to heavily promote positive leadership which is nothing to do with positive thinking. It is looking at what is positive in people, what are the talents of the people, what are their strengths and enabling these strengths to inspire them. I think Imperial College is promoting these new ideas that unlock human potential, which is my mantra. It's a win/win situation for me, I can promote what I do on the board and also be a member of the board. I'm very proud to work with Imperial College and be part of the Advisory Board. I am looking forward to continuing in this capacity.

The Business Advisory Board brings together industry leaders who review and advise on all aspects of the Global Online MBA. We advise on how relevant the programme is to students and employers, lend specific expertise in marketing and recruitment, and support the development and delivery of the programme. Each one of us is from a different background so we all add different things to the mix - that came out in the first meeting!
