A message to AIM Alumni from AIM Business School Dean, Professor Elizabeth More
Welcome to the latest edition of the AIM Alumni newsletter. As I mentioned previously, these communications are part of a broad range of initiatives designed to engage with our valued community of AIM Business School Graduates.
Many of you may be receiving this newsletter for the first time as recent graduates of the AIM Business School and I’d like to congratulate and welcome you to our growing alumni community. It was a great privilege to see so many new graduates at our recent graduation ceremonies that took place in Brisbane, Melbourne, Sydney and Adelaide.
We hope you enjoyed celebrating with family and friends while taking the opportunity to reflect on such a significant career achievement. For myself, the AIM Business School Academic Board and our Faculty, these graduations were a great opportunity to hear firsthand from you about your individual study journeys and to be inspired by your success.
Another initiative which has been pleasing to get underway have been the recent AIM Alumni events taking place around the country. I’d like to thank Dr David Paul, a consultant and also one of the ABS facilitators, for providing such an insightful presentation on Mindfulness for AIM Alumni and Faculty in July. I’d also like to thank Professor Ian Woodward, Professor of Organisational Behaviour at Insead (ranked this year as the top private Business School in the world) who recently spoke this month at our exclusive thought leadership series on the topic of High Performance Leadership.
We were also lucky enough to have Professor Ian Woodward as a guest on the second episode of the AIM Business School’s podcast series, Conversations with Thought Leaders. For those who haven’t listened to the first episode yet, I’d encourage you to hear some of the insights provided by David Rosenbaum on the topic of change management.
I look forward to providing you with updates on some of the exciting initiatives we have planned for the remainder of 2016 and into 2017. I welcome your feedback and suggestions on how we can continue building a strong and vibrant AIM Alumni body and I look forward to seeing you all at future events.
