What an Honour!

York 2014-01 (26)I was delighted to be in York at the weekend attending the degree ceremony on Saturday the 25th January to receive an honorary doctorate from the University.  It was particularly special for me, because of the independent confirmation it represented that my work makes a difference.  And that’s one of my burning passions – to make a positive difference to society through my work with organisations.  On top of that, the University looked after me incredibly well, with a programme of events on the Friday and Saturday that I thoroughly enjoyed, including dinner in the mediaeval Merchant Adventurers’ Hall. And the icing on the cake – York is the University I attended as an undergraduate, so it felt like coming home.
