Professor Pawan Budhwar charmed and inspired an attentive audience of staff and students from across the university as he humbly shared the details of his professional journey as an academic.
Professor Budhwar explained how he migrated to the UK from India, and how his love for studying led him to complete several degrees to become an internationally renowned academic in the field of Human Resources and Management.
He also gave a brief insight to the challenges he faced as an young Indian migrant to the UK, the role his family background played in his career pursuits and how he found guidance and encouragement from fellow academics, colleagues and other sources to finally become a widely respected academic at Aston Business School.
His talk was followed by a question and answer session led by journalist and former BBC current affairs producer, John Mair, as well as questions from the audience.
