Q You donate regularly to the University. What projects at Cambridge particularly interest you?
A There are many worthwhile projects but the first one that appealed to me was the library at Judge Business School. Back during my days, Judge Business School was very new - even the building was not yet completed. When Professor Dame Sandra Dawson called on former Judge alumni to contribute to build the library, the School had already ranked top in Europe for a few years in a row. I took part because I wanted to say thank you to the School and to the people who had taken it to the top. The Vice-Chancellor's Fund to help students with difficulties has been another interest of mine for some time, too. It is great that with so many activities going on at Cambridge, the needs of students with difficulties are not overlooked.
Q What did Cambridge mean to you as a student?
A It was full of energy and inspiration! Quite often I felt I didn't need to study but just got out there and absorb the energy and the inspiration from everyone, including from my friends and teachers.
Q What does Cambridge mean to you, today?
A That energy and spirit are still there. So I come back to visit Cambridge a few times a year with my friends and family - especially when I feel my energy level needs a recharge or when I want to look for some new source of inspiration.
