Victoria Tomlinson, chair of the Management Division Advisory Board at Leeds University Business School pictured (centre) with Professor Nigel Lockett and board members.
Victoria says: “The Advisory Board’s role is to help in two particular areas: employability – helping students to get jobs; and research – helping academics to shape their research projects in a way that will ultimately be useful to businesses and organisations.
“Our role is to be a critical friend, sharing experience and ideas. I know that employers increasingly want to work with universities. This advisory board has real depth and breadth of experience and hopefully we can both learn from and help each other.”
