Prestigious recognition from the Saïd Business School at Oxford University
Desiree Botica, Sysdoc CEO NZ/ AU has been awarded the Outstanding Alumna of the Oxford Advanced Management and Leadership Programme (OAMLP) at the Saïd Business School at Oxford University.
The honour recognises Desiree’s exceptional performance as CEO of Sysdoc Australasia, by applying her learnings from the OAMLP into enduring practices. Desiree attended the course in October 2012 and was promoted to Sysdoc CEO in 2016. Since taking up the role, the company has delivered strong growth, in part, by Desiree challenging herself and her team to stretch themselves and deliver to agreed targets and timeframes.
Lalit Johri, Senior Fellow in International Business and Director of the OAMLP in announcing the win commended Desiree, saying that, “nurturing Sysdoc people and harnessing their collaborative potential and their aspirations is at the core of her transformation strategy,” adding that she has discovered and successfully adopted the ‘holy grail’ of superior performance.
Under Desiree’s leadership, Sysdoc has won 17 major global awards for excellence in delivery of services since 2014, for delivering business transformation services, creative learning and capability uplift programmes, and the development of digital experiences to support capability build. Over the past five years, Sysdoc has successfully disrupted the established norms of consulting, instilling their purpose of enabling people to work in a simpler, smarter way in all client solutions.
The social impact Sysdoc has made through engagement with social organisations and community impact programmes was also recognised by Lalit, in particular, Desiree’s mentoring of young women as part of the Auckland University Women in Business Mentoring Programme.
The OAMLP programme is the Saïd Business School’s flagship programme, attended by CEOs, high government officials and other top executives to learn from the best. This year, the school is number one in the UK for Open Programmes, and was ranked second in the world for the Oxford Executive MBA by the Economist.
The award ceremony was held in October 2018 at the Saïd Business School.
