Welcome to the Blog

Hi folks. I’m writing this blog to share some of my experiences as a Cranfield MBA student. My predecessors (Sarah and Rob) have captured some fantastic information for prospective students regarding the application process and daily life here at Cranfield. With this blog, I’ll endeavour to contribute by sharing some of the key insights I’ve gained through being here.

First things first … who am I and what am I doing here? Well, I’m a fun-loving, active Melbournian who has been working in IT for an investment bank for the past 7 years. I love to learn (I’m interested in almost everything), particularly when it involves exchanging stories and bouncing ideas around. In future, I’d love to play some small role in slowing Australia’s “brain drain”, perhaps by helping new, innovative businesses to survive and thrive in the Australian market.

I’m here at Cranfield to learn about business and management (of course) but also to broaden my perspective through meeting amazing people from all around the world and sharing stories with them. This year, I’m subscribing to Jackson Brown Jnr’s philosophy: “Let the refining and improving of your own life keep you so busy that you have little time to criticize others.”

One final note: please pardon the beginner’s mistakes I’ll undoubtedly make, this being my first blogging experience. Your comments and suggestions are most welcome.
