Managing Director Herbert Parkinson - John Lewis Partnership

"I found the whole experience challenging yet rewarding on so many fronts. During the course of the MBA we discussed many theories and concepts. These discussion points on many occasions were challenging, both with the tutors and fellow MBA students. What I didn't realise at this stage was that my own way of thinking - my thought process, my body language, my leadership and my behavioural style, was slowly changing.

On reflection, I have gained the ability to think wider, and give a broader evaluation of any given situation. From a career point of view, I have recently been promoted to Managing Director, this is a great sense of achievement, one that I can truly say mirrored the day when I was informed that I have gained my MBA. These are the moments in life you will never ever forget. I found my experience during my MBA truly awe-inspiring."
