Dipak ChummunI’d like to thank the Institute for the opportunity to serve it. I aspire to contribute to its growth and future success by bringing something new to the table by virtue of my international experience in consulting, banking and industry, growing businesses in different parts of the world.
My starting hypothesis, upon joining the council, is that we have an opportunity to grow members outside the UK significantly and we should seize this opportunity. In particular Africa has less than 1% of global members, less than 1500 overall. With a young population where 40% are less than 15 years old approaching the age where tertiary education choices need to be made, I believe we should identify the best markets and deploy the right means to attract new students to become ACAs across the continent.
