No vacation time but loving new job

Well it’s been an interesting summer. New job as Director of our Executive MBA program started June 1st and so far so good. I have a great team including a fantastic Deputy Director, Sharon Nelson. Quite the challenge as we  implement a new program with a holistic perspective and a focus on the “complete executive”.  Doing all sorts of fun and innovative stuff, we’re even putting in a scent system by Scent Air (what is the smell of academic success?…). Globe and Mail mentioned some of the things we are doing: Orientation starts next week on Tuesday Aug 19, really excited to welcome the 2014 cohort with some pretty cool things planned for them… ssshhh can’t reveal everything !

Had fun in May giving a talk to the association of food economists and am speaking on Monday August 18 to World Congress of Food Science and Technology

L.A. planned for October for the EMBA Council Conference, looking forward to that !

Never a dull moment at JMSB !
