I have spent many years prior to working in the University as a senior director in large organisations. Over my time in the various roles I realised how important it was to develop the individual in terms of their interpersonal skills as well as the pure academic progress. In my experience It is those individuals who effect this balance that progress in their chosen career. What I like to do in “academia” is work on all aspects of student’s development ensuring that they get the opportunity to effectively apply their learnings in their chosen careers.
