CO U N CI L T H E G LO B E 201 6 PRESIDENTS INTERVIEW formation of new Regions within Section XX in Bangladesh and in Egypt. I enjoyed my time as Regent for England Scotland and Wales and was honored to be European President in 2007. Finally my Fellow Inspires Fellow FIF challenge to get sponsorship for the GVF was a first for the College and myself. Sailing the Atlantic Ocean for me was a real achievement and one that has earned more funds for the GVF. My hope is that other Fellows will plan their own challenges so that we can support them How do you deal with family committments Luckily I am now retired and have the time to spend on the College I am in awe of my predecessors who have continued to run their practices whilst being College President. My wife Sheila continues to work full time as a consultant physician in Occupational and Aviation medicine but will still accompany me on most of my visits. We still try to see as much of our friends and family as possible and maximize our time on the ski slopes and on our beloved yacht Amberjack. What is your vision for the ICD Jonathan Swift said Vision is the art of seeing the invisible but for me I see an organization that leads the world in educational and humanitarian aid a College that appeals to every dentist of substance and an ICD that has governance structures that are the envy of other international societies.

This fund aims to achieve the sum of one million US dollars by further donations from graduates of the Misch Institute and members of the ICOI. Moreover I am pleased to say that the Henry Schein grant for materials and equipment is being used appropriately and continues to help people in low and middle-income countries. What are your best accomplishments in the ICD I was pleased to start the Diamond Sponsor program but now feel that it should be taken to a new level with different stages of sponsorship. I am also proud to be GVF Chair and I believe it will be extremely important for the future of the College as we strive to be known as the Go To people for educational and humanitarian aid. I am also happy to be at the helm to deal with the College governance structures and to travel the world as an evangelist for the ICD. I am certain that every President has this same aim and only a limited period to make a difference. I was recently in South Africa to conduct an induction ceremony in Cape Town. We are delighted to support the ...I see an organization that leads the world in educational and humanitarian aid a College that appeals to every dentist of substance and an ICD that has governance structures that are the envy of other international societies. 1 5Journal of the International College of Dentists
