What books are on your bedside table right now?
My Ivey books, of course, and a copy of Tina Fey’s Bossypants.
How do you manage stress (i.e. sports, exercise, meditation)?
I’m a fitness junkie. I have four gym memberships and I work out six days a week. It’s the first thing I do in the morning, other than looking at my phone. It gets me in the right frame of mind for my busy day.
What is the most significant thing you’ve learned at Ivey?
The most significant thing I’ve learned at Ivey is that every decision you make should be based on data. Identify the issue at hand, analyze the data, and determine the appropriate recommendations based on data. I’ve also learned that a great leader will help pave the way for our future leaders so people come first before anything.
What’s been the most surprising aspect of the Executive MBA journey to date?
For me, the most surprising aspect is meeting so many intelligent people from all different parts of the world in many different industries. I’ve learned so much from my fifty-nine new friends.
