Future Leaders

16 November 2021 | 13:30 - 14:15 | English | The Future Leader

I have and will always believe in a life of service, I am a Sikh by heritage, and this is part of my DNA, I believe a rich life consists fundamentality of service to others, and what a better way than education. I help young people with CV’s interview skills, I believe in social justice and equal opportunities for everyone. For me the pandemic has highlighted a need for leadership that is founded in empathy, compassion, vulnerability, and awareness, as well at the required grit, determination. People including our staff and students have suffered the biggest trauma of a generation, losing loved ones not having normal freedoms and to quieten this trauma we need to consider future capabilities carefully.
