Boating and Sailing

I am interested in all areas of power boating, cruising and sailing.

Henley Business School Sailing Group

I am team leader and co-ordinator for Henley Business School’s sailing group. We compete in regatta’s held for business schools and MBA alumni.

See photo, right, for the 2018 team who competed in the Cranfield MBA Regatta held on the Solent.

For more details see our site at the Henley Sailing blog.

 

MBA Sailing

The main regatta for us each year is the Cranfield MBA Regatta which is part of the MBA Sailing series. See their web site for more details at mbasailing.com.

MBA

During the years 1997 to 2001 I completed an MBA at Henley Management College (now called Henley Business School, part of the University of Reading).

The course was distance learning and we were grouped together into a syndicate with colleagues from other companies. Syndicate 34 started in June 1997 and consisted of 18 people from the UK, Germany and the USA.

Group photo taken on 4th June 1997. It’s 20 years today since this was taken!

During the course the original group dispersed as people moved companies, changed syndicates or decided not to carry on with the studying. A distance learning MBA is a long slog with many late nights and early mornings, especially if you have a busy full time job at the time (as I did).
On graduation day there were just four of us, two from the original eighteen.
