Messages for Andrew and Meira

In Andrew’s last year as Dean, the LBS community shared messages of thanks and best wishes, memories of being taught by Andrew and moments from his deanship.

Andrew,
Many congratulations on your tenure as Dean and of course your years of service to LBS.

On my final visit to the LBS campus today (after an amazing congregation) to complete last minute graduation logistics, I bumped into Sir Andrew. It was so flattering to hear his words of wisdom on the go while expressing his happiness to see me, the first residing Yemeni to graduate from LBS. A great leader like Sir Andrew who remembers small details, inspires us to be people who aspire to make a difference in the world. Thank you Sir Andrew! You have really touched me with your "judgement" presentation especially after attending it in Dubai. Can't wait to welcome you in my new restaurant in Dubai. #lbsgraduate #bestdeanever #greatleader #whyilovelbs #londonbusinessschool #london2017 #dubai #mandilicious #proudyemeni #yemen #grateful #someonedeservesabigthankyouforallsupport

Dear Sir Andrew, I first got to know you as my Dean where I was continuously amazed by your generousity, youthfulness, compassion and relatibility. You welcomed our brand new MiM class with open arms and made us feel so passionate about being where we were, giving us a sense of belonging. You were always around, approachable (even just by pouring drinks at sundowners) and truly embodied the school's spirit at fun and serious events alike. You have inspired me and countless other students and we all have nothing but the fondest memories and deepest regard for you and the School. Wishing you all the success and happiness in the future. Thank you for everything you have done and stood for.

Dear Andrew,

Thank you for your commitment, approachability and freshness you brought to the School.

Irrepressibly good memories of Management Accounting as taught by you - quite remarkable! I think it was the people aspects & implications of good management accounting that engaged me; maybe with your flair, it was also a little easier to understand than Financial Accounting (though I did have a soft spot for Walter R!)

Thank you and Meira for all and everything you have done in helping LBS to its present stature & confidence.

Best wishes

Dear Andrew,
I'll never forget when I first joined asking my colleague about you and being astonished at the vehemence with which she replied "I LOVE him!" - it didn't take me long to work out why. My favourite memories:- The emphatic knife waving at Winter Celebration- Singing carols and chatting about choirs- Your orientation story about someone asking "who are you?" when you asked for any questions- You stopping to take a photo of my team on the lawn because we "looked so happy"You've brought such humour and warmth to the School, especially to School meetings. Thank you for your support of both formal initiatives like orientation (I don't think you've missed one!) and informal ones like the School choir. And, if you are free at Christmas, we're always looking for new basses!

Many thanks for all you've done for the School Andrew! Personally thanks for the time you made available to the IAC, receptions at your lovely residence, and constant support. And thanks on behalf of past and future students for the legacy you've created - you leave the School's financial security and campus totally changed. And finally thanks for putting up my gentle ribbing at our occasional Dean's intereviews at events over the past couple of years with your indefatigable good humour. Its au revoir not goodbye and look forward to continuing to see you soon at School!
