"It is an exciting time for the University of Westminster and our Students' Union. Both the University and Union have been through a lot of change recently, we have ambitious plans for the future which are now founded on strong and robust foundations. We have very significant opportunities which call on and develops what we have stood for since 1838. That is to provide an outstanding experience for our students in one of the most diverse and international Universities. Through our inclusive, caring and innovative approach, we create graduates with the personal and professional characteristics that make them ready for employment and to make positive contributions to our society. I joined the University in May and the scale of the opportunity here is already clear. Fulfilling our potential does and will, require excellent and close working relations with the Students Union- elected officers and employees. My experience has already been excellent in this regard and I am so looking forward to developing our cooperation further going forward.
