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.‘
