On Wednesday 7 March, students packed out the School of Management Lecture Theatre to listen to three speakers talk about their careers in Marketing. Whilst many of the students were on a Management or Marketing related degree, undergraduate students from other departments such as European Studies and Mathematics also attended this careers focused speaker session, demonstrating the broad appeal that a career in Marketing has.
The three speakers were:
Mark Calzaverini: Mark graduated in 2007 with an MSc in International Management, having obtained a degree in Computing from the University of Surrey. His career started at Pixmania Pro, followed by over two years as an Analyst at Accenture, and several positions in the Marketing and Advertising professions. He is now the Affiliate Marketing Manager at directflights.com.
Ed Seymour-Lee: Ed graduated in 2008 with a BSc in Management. After working as a Press Officer at the Conran Shop for several months following graduation, Ed held the position of Senior Account Executive at Mash Marketing and Design Bridge. In February 2011, Ed started working at Saatchi & Saatchi X as an Account Manager, working on accounts such as Wella and Head & Shoulders.
Roger Foster: Roger is the Regional Director for the South East Region within the Chartered Institute of Marketing’s head office, a role which involves developing closer links between the Institute and other organisations including universities. Previously, Roger was Managing Director of the UK subsidiary of a European electronic component group with sales of £152m.
This event concludes this academic year's programme of 'Insights' events, which has included Internships, HR and Economics. Over 300 students from across the College have benefited from engaging with alumni and industry experts. 'Insights' events will continue in the new academic year.
