He has visited Bangladesh on several occasions and particularly optimistic about the country's economic future. Indeed, he has provided his thoughts on several occasions in a series of articles in Dhaka's Daily Star newspaper and has spoken at numerous conferences in the country.

William firmly believes that education is the backbone of any country's economic and social development. He is now committed to applying his management and leadership skills as well as his extensive educational experience to develop the next generation of Bangladeshi students.

Truly effective education must combine student engagement, the latest technology, parental participation and above all inspirational teaching. World class institutions also take their students well beyond the prescribed curriculum. Global citizens, who can operate at the highest level, must also be exposed to fields ranging from the art of public speaking to management techniques. In this respect, William will not only draw on his own extensive experience but will also bring in executives from top organization in Bangladesh and abroad. Above all, William expects to continue to build on Regent College's reputation for excellence and engagement.
