What did you study at Warwick?

My thesis focused on integrating strategic planning with the process of execution and change management - a topical subject in today's environment and one that remains close to my heart.

Do you have any fond memories of your time at Warwick?

Once my studies were complete train journeys and travel were never quite the same - commuting became a chore rather than an opportunity to catch up with my reading list. I have many fond memories of lengthy debates with a diverse range of fellow students and of some very entertaining tutors.

Where did you live?

A small village in South Cambridgeshire, approximately 100 miles from Warwick.

What are you doing now?

Working in and developing Ernst & Young's Performance Improvement practice in Vancouver. I also lecture at the UBC Sauder School of Business on the subjects of business transformation, the balanced scorecard and strategy execution.

Why did you decide to become an alumni ambassador?

Whilst in the UK I maintained strong ties with WBS and my fellow alumni and I am keen to establish alumni connections in my new home - Vancouver, BC.

What kind of people make up the Warwick alumni community in your area?

Not yet known but I suspect there will be a cross-sector and international mix.

What kind of events do you run?

Just starting up and I propose to listen to fellow alumni to ensure we engage and are relevant to as many people as possible with a range of topical and social events.

Have you been back to Warwick recently?

I lectured on the subject of business transformation at Warwick Business School and regularly attended the executive update weekends and corporate director events .
