In Support of Excellence

It's all about the students

Breadth of impact

In 1989 as a family we did something quite unusual - we gave away our business and most of our belongings, reduced our “stuff” to eight suitcases, pulled the children out of school, invested all the money we had on airline tickets and travelled to Hawaii for a training course.  We planned to visit for three months, but stayed for nine years as volunteers with no visible signs of income. People back home thought we were a little different.  During that time we became international people, travelling to 20+ countries and living with people from over 100 cultures. 

I brought this global perspective and appreciation for people from different cultures and languages to my job and in the last eight years I have travelled internationally at least once a year, via scholarships or external funding. I have extensive international networks with academics and elearning professionals from around the world.  This has led to many presentations (some keynotes) and ambassadorial representation on behalf of the University.
