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: http://www.tinyurl.com/n428yfl 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 http://www.iufost2014.org

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

Never a dull moment at JMSB !
