"I entered Kingston unsure of my academic worthiness or my ability to achieve success. I found a group of talented people committed to nurturing my interest in international business strategy and marketing. There is a saying: 'If you have a penny and I have a penny and we exchange coins, then we both still have one coin. But if you have an idea, and I have an idea and we exchange ideas you now have two ideas, and I have two ideas.'
I have been fortunate and, from the very earliest days at Kingston, have had the opportunity to share many ideas. From the sandwich course that changed my life so long ago, I constantly find crumbs that lead me back to Kingston for both business and personal reasons and for which I am continuously thankful."
