How did the course prepare you for your career?
‘My job is permanently wading in at the deep end. Its high pace, last minute and low resource – the course certainly threw us into the deep end when I was there, having us organise and run our own events, so I was ready to get my hands dirty, and still do!’
What is your one piece of advice for current students?
‘Make as many contacts as you possibly can “in the real world” I got, and kept, my role all via relationships. Be nice and work hard.‘
