Some said you need balls of steel to survive this. Some said he is a devil, some said he is GOD of his subject.
But having worked 16 hours a day for 5 straight days, I can say this with a degree of confidence that this is the best thing that not only happened to me at Warwick, but in life too.
The passion and excellence with which Prof Cockrum delivers his lectures is indeed exemplary.
We are all senior managers and hundreds of people report to us. Leadership is not a consequence of one’s position. Leadership is a consequence of superiority of knowledge, intent and discipline.
So while we learnt a lot about financing and entrepreneurship, one holistic message that we have taken and that will stay with us for the rest of our life is that if you know what you are doing and adding value to the life of the person who looks up to you, no matter how hard or demanding you are people will revere you.
As we revere Prof. Cockrum today.
