The phrase 'tea lady' took on a whole new meaning in Oxford! Sarah, a colleague based at Marriotts in Buckingham, kindly volunteered to assist with the preparation of beverages to sustain graudands and guests alike during the robing and photography process. I think readers will agree that tea was indeed being served by a true lady, albeit one who kept her eyes firmly shut!
Thank you Sarah, for filling this vital role on the day!

I spent part of May 'on the road' or rather in the air visiting IMCA partners wherever I found them. One of our very busy and active Singapore partners Dr K C Chan (on the very right in the photo) who is not only completing his own DLitt, IMCA's very rarely awarded higher doctorate, but also finds time to mentor four Singapore entrepreneurs through their respective DPhil by Explication programmes. There was a lot of energy in the room on the day I visited!
Dr K C Chan and his cohort of DPhil associates are now preparing for their external examination and intend to graduate in Oxford in September.

First reaction - When am I going to get a chance to read this?
Second reaction - That sounds just like the book I ought to read!
So John, thank you very much for the kind thought and I have every intention to read the book from cover to cover over Easter.
In fact, I am very enthusiastic about reading the book since I took five minutes to glance at the Table of Contents and spotted a couple of fascinating sections right at the end of the book. Namely, a section entitled 'One Page Resources' and a self-review chapter entitled 'What did we set out to do?'
We are all busy people. 'One Page Resources' are therefore very appealing - and the self-review chapter reminds me at first glance very much of our own EAML assignments.
The book review will be posted here after Easter.
