The Three Musketeers

A year or so back, I wrote a short piece in a book that the School of Business, Economics & Informatics, (Birkbeck University of London) put together to mark Professor Phillip Powell’s resignation from his post as its Dean. It was entitled ‘The Three Musketeers’ and briefly described how three of us (Professor Philip Dewe, Vice Master, Professor Phillip Powell, Dean, and me (Tom Cox)) came together to set ambitious plans for a new School-level research centre with a new professional doctorate. Their focus was (and remains) occupational health, psychology and management. Phillip Powell continued to guide and support this adventure after Philip Dewe had to leave Birkbeck for health reasons eventually going home to New Zealand. I concluded my piece by saying that there was then going to be just one Musketeer left (me). The breaking news now is that there will soon be no Musketeers left as I am also resigning from BBK with effect from 2nd October 2020. I leave after nearly 10 years of service having achieved the initial goals of the Three Musketeers.
