Professor Roger Martin is the Dean of the Business School at Rotman University in Toronto.
Professor Martin’s model of Integrative Thinking is widely used in the business world today. As a pioneer in Integrative and Design Thinking, his contributions to the business community at large, are immeasurable.

I wrote this letter to Prof Martin (who I was introduced to through world renowned tennis coach Bob Brett), to explore the role of Emotional Intelligence in Integrative Thinking.
Prof Martin’s contribution to further developing this theory and my understanding of the science of design thinking and creation, was eye opening.

Here is a copy of my first letter to Prof Roger Martin.

Roger Martin Letter

Sport has always played an integral role in my life. It has nurtured me and thought me many lessons. It has opened many doors and fostered many relationships. Sport is the reason I am who I am.
I realize that it has given me the greatest gift anyone could ever ask for – the power to believe and the strength to make it come true.
My dream is to pass on this very same gift to every child.

INK provided me with a platform to voice this dream and gave me a family that can make it come true. For this, I’m eternally grateful.
