Chris Blackburn receives prestigious award
Friday, 18 December 2020
Chris Blackburn has received a recognition award from EFMD Global in Brussels for his ‘outstanding commitment and contribution to driving excellence in management education globally amid the turbulence caused by the Covd19 pandemic'.
Since retiring as Pro Vice-Chancellor and Dean of the Business
School in July, Chris has
been involved in several accreditation panels for Business Schools in
France and Poland and is currently mentoring another European business school
aiming for its first accreditation.
‘Unfortunately’, says Chris, ‘no travel has been involved and Zooming from Headington doesn't
have quite the same buzz as being in Paris or Warsaw, but
those accreditation nerves can still arise, even as a gamekeeper
rather than a poacher!'
Chris has been
closely following developments at Brookes and said 'I have
nothing but admiration for what you've all accomplished in such extraordinary
circumstances. But in my experience, colleagues at OBBS have never failed to rise to a challenge. Warmest Seasons
Greetings to everyone and have a happy and healthy New Year'
