“My first academic position was at the University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg, back in the 1960s. For decades after that my career took me elsewhere, but I always felt an attachment to business education in Africa. When I met Guy and heard about the GBSN and its work there, I jumped at the chance to be part of it, and it’s a honor now to join its Board of Directors.”H.
