Welcome from Executive Director

“A very warm welcome to Jacobs-Abbey Global Institute for Leadership Studies. I am very proud to serve as the Executive Director of the Institute and to be leading an ambitious Institute with huge potential. These are exciting times for the Institute, and I am delighted to be taking the Institute into the next chapter in its history.

I am determined to secure an outstanding future for the Institute and my aims are to build on the current strengths, develop a greater focus on enhancing the quality of teaching and learning, and take the Institute forward on a journey to outstanding in all areas. I am committed to working with the Board of Trustees, Executive Management team, Faculties, students, Alumni, and partners to transform learning, aspirations, and opportunities for our students.

My aim is to ensure that our students have access to the best possible opportunities and experiences during their courses, so that they can reach their full potential and are better prepared for the future. Our work is focused on developing and celebrating students as individuals and not just as learners. We believe that everyone, regardless of ability, deserves a quality learning. The Jacobs-Abbey Global Institute for Leadership Studies is a research, teaching, training, and leadership Institute that critically provides strategic transformational thinking as a philosophy designed to reorient thinking patterns to change the world with the premise that, if we want to change the world, we must first change our thinking
