Prof Cynthia Pine


Pro Vice-Chancellor, International, Salford University


Cynthia is chair of the North West regional committee of the NHS’s Research for Patient Benefit programme. Last year she was also appointed as an honorary consultant in dental public health to Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust. Prior to her appointment at Manchester’s Salford university, where she was initially an executive dean, Cynthia had made history by becoming the UK’s first female dean of a dental school – the University of Liverpool – since dental schools were established in 1859. As Salford’s pro vice- chancellor she is responsible for the leadership and development of Salford’s internationalisation strategy, representing the university in dealings with governments at home and abroad and the development of international partnerships. She is renowned for her research in UK dental public health and in programmes with the World Health Organisation (for which she has served as director for oral health in deprived communities). Cynthia, now also a consultant in dental public health at Salford Primary Care Trust, had helped increase Liverpool’s undergraduate provision by 100%, making Liverpool’s dental school the largest outside London and helping to address a shortfall of dental professionals.


Prof Stanley Okolo


Medical Director, North Middlesex University Hospital


David Waboso


Director, Capital Programmes, London Underground


Having established a solid leadership reputation as the clinical undergraduate sub-dean at North Middlesex University Hospital, Stanley is now in his second term as the hospital’s medical director aſter being first elected in June 2006. He has overseen key quality improvements, a huge cut in hospital mortality and the completion of a new £123m hospital. NMUH is one of London’s top 10 acute hospitals and, owing to its improvements, regional health authorities have said it can be examined to see if it can become a standalone foundation trust, with a target date of April 2014. Stanley plays a crucial role identifying and mentoring clinicians with leadership or academic potential and, having trained at Ashridge business school, he coaches NHS staff from other organisations. Stanley has a passion to contribute to improvements in global healthcare, especially in less-developed countries, via research and policy initiatives, health systems and up-skilling of healthcare professionals. He graduated in Nigeria and moved to the UK in 1987. He holds a PhD in endocrinology from UCL, three London professorships and one with St George’s International University in Grenada. He was president of Mansag, the key Nigerian doctors grouping in the UK, for about five years.

David, who was previously director of engineering, holds one of the most high-profile, challenging and inf luential engineering jobs in the country. He is a key player in a multibillion-pound investment programme that will renew London’s underground system over the next decade. Through his leadership, huge projects including the introduction of a brand new fleet of trains on the Victoria Line, were delivered under immense pressure and well ahead of London’s Olympic and Paralympic Games. David has an impressive record in leading engineering projects across light rail, metro and mainline railways and extensive experience of working in both the private and the public sectors. Shunning a family tradition of working in the medical profession, David chose instead to become an engineer. His first job was helping to design the M63 and M66 motorways. He later became a maths teacher in London’s Stoke Newington area. David’s career took off in 1995 when he won first prize as UK Project Manager of the Year from the Association for Project Management for his work on the Docklands Light Railway’s resignalling. He took up his current role at London Underground in 2010.
