you you you you you you you you you welcome ladies and gentlemen to the University of Portsmouth graduation ceremony this is a day of celebration for us all before the ceremony begins we would like to share a short video highlighting some of your university achievements that make us proud sighted nervous belief adventurous my very first day at Portsmouth there was a mixture of trepidation I was moving away from home for the first time it was quite daunting I had been in a place that many people buy and that soon flips around because I realized everyone else was more scared and you are my fondest memories of my time at Portsmouth have been the friendships that I've made and also just being inspired in the lectures it was so exciting to be at uni and be straightaway in like a live broadcast environment and that first initial memories has sort of sparked something that I hopefully I'll get to new freshmen are I learn to be independent here I learnt to push through any challenges and barriers but I had it's definitely made me a confident young lady that can go forward now and I wouldn't really hesitate to take on anything in life when I studied a geography degree which on the face of it doesn't seem though it would be applicable is about the skill sets and how that set me up for a future career you can see all these that you learn at university that course works the methods you've learned to use I feel that there is a cement helped me a lot in my everyday life the emotion efforts when I was sitting in regression world was something surreal it was the end result of a lot of hard work I can remember all of those days sat down with me I don't understand what I'm writing about here or I don't know how to reference thinking back to how far I've come along the whole journey and then handing that piece in and then receiving the results it was a very special moment it's been an amazing experience if I could do it all again I would at the time the eyes of all Smurfs I think it helped me realize my ambition I came in a normal working-class girl from reading I think I found my voice when I was at Portsmouth since I graduated from Portsmouth I haven't been able to keep away I've kept in touch with alumni T Russell volunteering with them so I've been back a couple of times through Facebook lives I've hosted some events the careers and employability they went above and beyond and to know that they were there for five years after fish university helps with pressure of the real world I've benefited from the prospect of scholarship and I think that has been amazing them both making it easier and less stressful to go and do a master it's an end of your journey in Portsmouth horses will always be here for you and as an alumni there is so much more to offer what excites me the most about future is that I can be part of what I was thinking of being that when I starting University actually make those bridges in those buildings and say I've done this I've done that and feel quite great I am incredibly proud to always be part it has passed myself as part of who I am today it's made me who I am today and to be able to go back and keep giving back is great you you [Applause] [Applause] [Applause] [Applause] [Applause] [Applause] [Applause] [Applause] [Applause] [Applause] [Applause] this is an important day in the life of the University a day to

back on this day with great affection at this moment I know you will be experiencing a great range of emotions relief that you've made it pride in your abilities a sense of reward in the recognition of your qualification and perhaps also a sense of excitement trepidation and expectation as you think ahead to the next leg of your journey and what adventures and opportunities that will bring many of you will not be sure what those next steps will be you need to find your passion and that spark that ignites it as Joyce Lee did not know doneita said one of the greatest gifts you can give yourself right here right now in this single solitary monumental moment in your life is to decide without apology to commit to the journey I'm sure there have been times when you wondered whether you would succeed by being here you're proven that you have succeeded thanks to your determination and hard work while the sole credit for your academic achievement is clearly yours I'm sure you would agree that those close to you have played a crucial role parents partners children and friends have all helped by providing the encouragement and support the shoulder to cry on The Listening year but

university has resolved to confer the award of doctor of the university honoris causa upon Sara Kennedy vice-chancellor ladies and gentlemen graduands my name is Paul Hayes and I'm the deputy vice-chancellor at the University and it's my great privilege to spend a few minutes telling you a little about our honorary graduate Sara Kenney Sara Kenny's career has in large part been driven by her desire to make a difference a really early inspiration was to make a difference to the environment while still at school she regularly volunteered to for work experience with what was then the National riffles rivers authority where in the days when there was less of a focus on health and safety she worked in the laboratories and in the field taking modern water samples from rivers and streams testing the blood of fish and visiting sewage treatment plants to test the effluent she loved every minute of it and was inspired to study environmental science at university after graduating Sara worked for the Ministry of Agriculture fisheries and food in the fisheries research Directorate this allowed her to apply everything she'd learned but also and very importantly to see how business government and politicians use policy process and data to make decisions she learned very quickly that it's never as simple as just knowing the science during this period she was able to spend many weeks at time at sea sometimes is the only woman in all sorts of weird and wonderful scenarios she has fond memories of being on the Irish Sea and washing watching whales play just a few feet from the ship and going swimming out and sea on a stunningly calm day until the ship's captain shouted looked down where there was a huge shark a few feet below her fortunately it was a basking shark they feed on plankton not people Sara's move from Fisheries to defense was not really planned but followed a move to the south coast with her partner where she joined the defense evaluation and research agency as a project manager she was inspired and intrigued by the amazing work undertaken there she applied her background to good effect by designing environmental systems for war ships and submarines culminating in being the UK technical adviser to NATO on environmental compliance issues not that everything always proceeded smoothly one of her favorite stories relates to when they fitted a submerged membrane bioreactor to one of the type 23 frigates it worked brilliantly and gave the ship substantially better operating capacity than others while also being far better for the environment but and this is an important book it relied on the crew using low foaming and biological cleaning products this was fine at sea but when the ship returned to Portsmouth a significant member of the royal family was due to visit and the ship had to be immaculate so the crew forgot everything they've been told and used every cleaning product Under the Sun to clean the ship this cocktail of chemicals reached the bioreactor foamed catastrophic ly shooting a huge amount of what can best and most politely be described as brown foam all over the aircraft hangar roof and it was cleaned off just in time for the royal visit leaving Sarah to run down the gangplank at the other end of the ship in her now very brown overalls just as the royal visitor arrived even though she was having such fun and those are her words Sarah decided that the bits of the job she enjoyed most for spending time with customers winning new work and delivering big projects so she hung up her lab coat did some management training and then took off took on business after business for what was by now the privatized kinetic a Sales Director for kinetics C division Sarah was instrumental in establishing their maritime business which after incorporating land and weapons businesses became the largest business group in the company Sarah not only achieved the creation of this new business through pulling together many diverse and disparate capabilities she also delivered significant business growth and customers focus ensuring that real operational value delivered to the Royal Navy's warfighter fighting capability in 2017 Sarah was appointed chief executive officer of BMT Group Limited a leading global design engineering and science consultancy focused in the commercial and defense areas of the maritime sector Sarah is a member of the Maine Board of BMT and leads the executive committee responsible to the board for the day-to-day running of the group beyond her immediate work environment sarah is involved in many initiatives to give something back to society she has frequently joined the judging panel for pitch at Palace founded by the Duke of York which provides a platform to amplify and accelerate the work of entrepreneurs giving them opportunity to meet people who can assist and support their new businesses think Dragon's Den sarah has a passion for promoting STEM science engineering technology and maths amongst young people she conceived and designed and led the school's powerboat challenge now in its ninth year the challenge provides pupils aged between 12 and 15 from local schools with hands-on experience of using stem skills in ium maritime industry Sarah also had a leading role as a director of Portsmouth University Technical College where she was deeply involved in ensuring a successful launch for this now thriving educational institution from 2013 to 2016 Sarah was director of the rona trust a charity providing sail training experience to young people from all backgrounds including the care and social and privations services in recognition of both her professional achievements and a wider contributions Sarah has been the recipient of several honors she is very proud to have been appointed an honorary commander in the Royal Navy in recognition of her contribution outside of formal business to the future direction of the Royal Navy within the UK maritime sector she was delighted to be made an OBE in the 2019 Queen's Birthday Honours List for services to the maritime industry and diversity reflecting her long-standing commitment and contribution to supporting and promoting the UK's maritime industries in addition to her work on stem and promoting the importance and value of diversity in the sector it is almost impossible not to be completely bowled over by Sara's passion and enthusiasm for that she does to use her own words she says I love leading teams to deliver something amazing and it never ceases to amaze me how much more a truly great team can achieve it is always something far greater than the sum of the individual parts BMT is the perfect business for me we lead on environmental assessments for climate change working on the Great Barrier Reef rejuvenation projects and flood modeling whilst also also designing the next generation of green commercial and warships I am proud to lead an organization with so many brilliant scientists and engineers who genuinely inspire me every single day it is wonderful to be inspired by others but this award today is for the inspiration that others gain from Sarah and all that she has achieved vice-chancellor I present Sarah Kenney for the honorary degree of doctor of the university honoris causa by the authority of the university it is my pleasure to admit you to the degree of doctor of the university honoris causa [Applause] Wow I'm not sure I recognize myself in there Vice Chancellor ladies gentlemen graduands thank you very much indeed for bestowing such an honor on me today and for inviting me here to be a part of your graduation ceremony I want to take this opportunity to congratulate the graduates for what I know will have been several years of incredibly hard work to get you here today I hope that in return for receiving this huge honor I will be able to encourage and help you and those who follow you whilst thinking about what to say today I looked for inspiration to the speeches of a few other I have to say rather more eminent and deserving folk than I many of them tell wonderful stories of a life very well lived filled with honorable deeds and huge decisions many of them also offer astoundingly profound advice however mindful of the perils of plagiarism and feeling slightly inadequate and a little bit humbled by being here in front of you all today I figure that my life story might seem rather dull and on the offer of profound advice I'm reminded of a mock graduation speech published in the Chicago Tribune and subsequently turned into a pop song by Baz Luhrmann be careful whose advice you buy advice is a form of nostalgia dispensing it is a way of fishing the past from the garbage wiping it off painting over the ugly parts and recycling it for more than it's worth so instead I will share a few thoughts about how I have approached my personal and professional life things that I have come to hold dear as my guiding principles they have got me to where I am today and they may be useful to you as you embark on you journeys when you leave here today firstly I have always held on to and valued integrity my career and my personal life have presented me with many situations that have challenged it but I have found that doing the right thing even when it's really hard always rewards you in the end secondly I have learnt to get comfortable with the knowledge that I don't know everything that was a hard one believe me well so whilst I'm a big believer that you should never stop learning and please never stop learning that might seem an odd message when you just want to go and forget learning for a while and I may well decide to carry on working on the things that I'm not so good at there is nothing better than surrounding myself with a team who are better than me at those and other things this leads me neatly to my third thing which is to embrace and celebrate diversity I have spent my whole career as a woman in a male-dominated world initially I felt different and it made me feel uncomfortable over time I have learnt that it's best to simply be myself and ultimately to enjoy being different in turn this has made me aware of the true value of diversity and I now seek this actively in the teams and organizations that I work with and lead the sooner we all think and behave this way the better the better our workplaces and our societies will be diverse inclusive teams make better decisions and achieve so much more and finally having lived and worked in the Portsmouth area for over 20 years it has been truly impressive to see the ambition of the University of Portsmouth being realized and have witnessed some of the incredible achievements of its staff and its students over the course of my career I have worked with academic establishments all over the world and I can honestly say that I particularly credit the University of Portsmouth for their outreach into the communities to local governments they're very active engagement with local industries and businesses and their excellent work on wider skills development through initiatives such as the UTC for those graduating today perhaps you have noticed this perhaps you haven't or perhaps you've just taken it for granted but this intrinsic desire to collaborate is special and different and something that I hold very dear so I would like to leave you with my last thought in this vein which is a quote attributed to one of my heroes Charles Darwin and it is but in the long history of humankind those who learn to collaborate and improvise most effectively have prevailed your University has set you on the path not just to prevail but to be brilliant take full advantage of it hold on to your values dare to be different surround yourself with talented and diverse people collaborate and most of all have some fun thank you very much ladies ladies and gentlemen we now come to the formal part of the ceremony where our graduands will process across the stage and miraculously become graduates I now invite the vice-chancellor and academic registrar to make the formal declarations after which the students will process across the stage they were first to be congratulated by the vice-chancellor and then the executive Dean of the Faculty of business and law professor giant Pichette oh and by the executive Dean of the Faculty of humanities and social science professor Matthew weight vice-chancellor as academic registrar I confirmed that those presented at the ceremony have successfully completed their studies and

this stage and speaking on behalf of all the graduates those that are here today and those that could not be the university journey has been a long one the positive experiences have driven us past and negative roadblocks we may have faced with how we have overcome these experiences to step up in starting a new journey in our lives we have shown that perseverance and determination have played a large role in this journey we have taken on challenges such as the lack of self belief in ourselves believing that we would not make it through an assignment that we may fail an exam or they would not make it to this ceremony today and become graduates we have overcome these self limitations with each challenge testing our limits however these challenges have allowed us to becoming better versions of ourselves as Michelle Obama said you should never view your challenges as a disadvantage instead it's as important for you to understand that your experience facing and overcoming adversity is actually one of your biggest advantages we did it although we did not achieve this alone but at the help of the staff at the University I would like to thank the staff on behalf of all the graduates for all the support they have given us their influence and their passion in their chosen subjects not only if they've been there for us in building our knowledge but they provided us with feedback to enable us to expand our skills and improve with each new task we face University is only one step that leads us to further challenges and future aspirations in which we will use the skills we have learned to university to reach the top of the stack and we'll be where we want to be we have worked hard for this moment and we're ready to take the next step whether this be future education starting
