Dilshad S

I have over 15 years of experience in the Higher Education sector and am currently the Dean of the Business School at University College Birmingham (UCB). My previous appointments have included Retail Manager for a leading supermarket in the UK and International Marketing Manager for a multinational confectionary organisation where I was based in the south of France for two years. I was delighted to become a Companion (CMI) last year and am also a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.

Being of Indian/African origin, my most recent interests have focused on the diversity in leadership and management across the Higher Education sector. I have delivered several keynote presentations both locally and nationally advocating the benefits of a diverse leadership and management team, am a mentor for the 30% Club and I continue to engage with audiences across a variety of sectors in my endeavours to encourage more females, especially from minority ethnic backgrounds, attaining senior leadership roles.
