100 final year and post-graduate students heard from Leo Ryan, Group Head of
Ogilvy's social marketing agency, who delivered a fascinating speech entitled,
'the need for muscle, mind and matter.'
Peleg, Senior Lecturer in Marketing and co-organiser said:
year the number of alumni at this event grows, and each year more students
benefit from their wealth of knowledge about the job market within the
marketing industry. That so many of our graduates give up their time to help
and guide the next crop of graduates is a source of immense pride and
satisfaction for us all."
Ing, Research Manager for Ipsos Mori's Centre of Excellence for Ethnography,
gave an illuminating talk about her journey from LSBU to one of the world's
leading market research firms. Like many of our graduates, Billie has been a
continual source of support and mentorship for LSBU students, and she has
helped many of our students to identify and secure employment opportunities
thoroughly enjoyed speaking to LSBU students at the careers evening. It's
always so nice to meet such engaged, enthusiastic and knowledgeable students,
many of whom connected with me afterwards so we can stay in touch." says
the last academic year, marketing alumni have provided more than sixty job
opportunities for students and have delivered numerous expert talks on industry
perspectives of marketing.
Godfrey, Senior Lecturer in Marketing said:
back' culture goes to the heart of what we do at LSBU. It's wonderful to see
our graduates achieve such success, and it's incredibly gratifying that so many
of them want to help those who are just starting their own career journeys."
