Dear Mum, I am so so sorry, I’ve sat down so many times to write, actually that’s not entirely true – I’ve thought about sitting down to write so many times! But I can’t even begin to describe how busy the term ended up being – far more so than I ever imagined! A few […]

Cleaner Teeth

On the last rainy weekend in Oxford, I was indoors. So far indoors, in fact, that I was in a windowless room. But I had barely noticed. I was dashing about a lecture hall during the Emerge conference, snapping pictures madly. I picked my way through a packed room of attendees, huddled in small groups, […]

The Space Agency in Your Backyard

I like thinking about the future. I like things that feel like they could come out of the pages of a science fiction novel. Some of you know this about me. Some of you even share this interest. If you do, then you know that there are few futuristic sectors more interesting to a scifi […]

Pandora’s box, but for opportunities

What do you call something that resembles Pandora’s box but for opportunities? Well, that’s what the MBA programme at Oxford feels like. I feel quite like a kid in a chocolate factory – which can be dangerous! And I have not been to many of the rooms yet, just keeping your eyes open is overwhelming…deciding […]

Michaelmas term ended and I could not have gotten out of Oxford quickly enough: oh the grey skies, the drizzle, the all-too-brief daylight hours, the cobblestone streets that catch my heels, the insistence that a baked potato is a meal. Then I got mugged on a beach in Brazil and thought: “So, Oxford, eh?” I’m […]

Emerge 2015

The recent Emerge conference brought hundreds of speakers, practitioners, academics and startup leaders to Oxford to discuss issues in Social Entrepreneurship. I was lucky enough to get a ticket (which were sold out) basically by booking the same day as I received my acceptance letter. Among the many talented speakers, James Brett stands out for […]
