Dear Henley Community,
As we bid farewell to 2023, we want to express our profound gratitude for the collaborative spirit that has defined our journey together. Your unwavering support has been the bedrock of our shared successes throughout this year.
In the spirit of change and evolution, we are pleased to announce a significant transition within our leadership. Annu Matula, whose guidance and dedication to build the brand of Henley Business School in Finland have been instrumental, will be passing the torch to our new Managing Director, Paula Kilpinen. We extend our heartfelt appreciation to Annu for her impactful contributions and warmly welcome Paula to this role. Annu will continue working for the business school as a Senior Advisor offering Paula her full support.
Christmas, beyond its festive allure, holds a special significance for us. It serves as a reminder of the core values that bind our community. As the holiday season envelops us, let it inspire a collective focus on nurturing leaders who embody the very essence of our community—those who embrace our values of being human, bringing passion and braving change.
Beyond the exchange of gifts, let’s also exchange ideas and foster an environment of open dialogue. In the upcoming year, let us commit to being purpose-driven leaders, actively addressing the pressing issues within our community and leaving an indelible impact on the lives of those around us.
Our community is a vibrant tapestry, woven with diverse talents, perspectives, and dreams. Together, let’s celebrate our differences, recognizing that through collaboration and understanding, we can collectively create a fairer and more inclusive world.
May the spirit of Christmas reignite our commitment to building a fairer world. This year our charity goes to UNICEF Education Fund to ensure Children’s right to education, even in the midst of crisis.
Wishing you and your loved ones a holiday season filled with joy, love, and the comforting warmth of our extraordinary community. We eagerly anticipate the journey ahead and look forward to continuing our collective efforts in building a fairer world throughout 2024.
The Henley Finland team
