1) Why did you choose Anaheim University?

The program through the Kisho Kurokawa Green Institute offered a program unlike any I’d seen in Australia, and the program delivery of sequential learning (rather than concurrent) allowed for a deep immersion in the material whilst balancing other work and impact priorities.

2) Can you tell us briefly about your career?

I spent the majority of my 20 year career developing businesses, in finance, retail, manufacturing and education. I run a medium sized not-for-profit and am two years into an impact growth phase. My other roles include strategic development, formation and value proposition design with 5-8 co-ops and social enterprises with a focus on people and the environment, and lecturing and advisory work for several Australian Universities. I feel immensely privileged to be able to spend all of my time in impact areas that I’m passionate about.

3) Why did you choose to earn a Green MBA?

Alternative MBAs do not blend socio-environmental dimensions into their programs in a meaningful way. I feel I have some ability to comment on this, due to my prior role running Australia’s largest provider of information services within Academia. Our sector suffers from ‘old ways’ of thinking, silo mentalities, and a lack of an ability to articulate the value it creates. I was hoping the Green MBA would provide me with additional skills in this area, and wasn’t disappointed.

Re-Imagining Kurosawa:

Academy Award winning Filmmaker, Film Producer and Screenwriter Akira Kurosawa (March 23, 1910 - Sept 6, 1998) was one of the greatest filmmakers of our time, who inspired many of the world’s greatest filmmakers such as George Lucas, Steven Spielberg, Martin Scorsese and Francis Ford Coppola. Kurosawa’s ground-breaking masterpieces inspired such classic movies as Star Wars, The Magnificent Seven, and A Fistful of Dollars, to name just a few.


In this lecture, Dr. David Desser will help you “Re-Imagine Akira Kurosawa” as he provides you unique insight into Kurosawa and his classic film, High and Low(1963), which was adapted from Ed McBain’s detective novel King’s Ransom.


Panel discussion/Q&A session follows the lecture.
