Here with my new friend Dr. Lay Chanthy from the Royal University of Phnom
Pen (Cambodia), who is at the Cairns Institute to learn about how to set up a research
support office for his University. We learned a lot from each other experiences.
We are all part of diverse organizations, with a universal mission and have much to learn from each other.
After all, being an academic executive should not be about politics, power, or low stakes infighting. It is about friendships and partnerships, and helping the universities in our countries grow further, contributing to national development and educating our students.
